MoinMoin is an easy to use, full-featured and extensible wiki software package written in Python. It can fulfill a wide range of roles, such as a personal notes organizer deployed on a laptop or home web server, a company knowledge base deployed on an intranet, or an Internet server open to individuals sharing the same interests, goals or projects.
A wiki is a collaborative hypertext environment with an emphasis on easy manipulation of information.
MoinMoin 1.5.0 is the first release on the 1.5 branch bringing you several new features such as the GUI editor, which allows the users to edit pages in a WYSIWYG environment, and many bug fixes. The download page: http://moinmoin.wikiwikiweb.de/MoinMoinDownload
The WYSIWYG editor for wiki pages allows you to edit pages without touching the markup. Furthermore, the wiki page is not stored as HTML after editing but kept as wiki markup in order to simplify the editing process for users that cannot or do not want to use the new editor.
AutoAdmin security policy allows users to gain admin permissions on particular pages.
The new authentication system allows to add short methods that check the credentials of the user. This allowed us to add eGroupware single sign on support.
Separation of homepages into a separate wiki (in a farm) and having a single user database is supported.
A DeSpam action to allow mass-reverting of spam attacks.
PackageInstaller support for simplified installation of plugins, themes and page bundles.
Note that Python 2.3.0 or newer is required. For a more detailed list of changes, see the CHANGES file in the distribution or http://moinmoin.wikiwikiweb.de/MoinMoinRelease1.5/CHANGES
MoinMoin has been around since year 2000. The codebase was initally started by Jürgen Hermann; it is currently being developed by a growing team. Being originally based on PikiPiki, it has evolved heavily since then (PikiPiki and MoinMoin 0.1 consisted of just one file!). Many large enterprises have been using MoinMoin as a key tool of their intranet, some even use it for their public web page. A large number of Open Source projects use MoinMoin for communication and documentation. Of course there is also many private installations.
