 MoinMoin 1.3.1 advanced wiki engine released

After almost one year of development, we are pleased to announce a major
new version focused on better user experience, international support and
easier administration.

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.

Major new features in this branch:

 * MoinMoin speaks your language! Complete Unicode support,
   translated system and help pages in more than ten languages, and
   support for languages written from right to left are the base features
   of our internationalisation support.

 * Fresh look and feel. New default user interface design, improved
   existing themes and enhanced theme plug-in framework that make it
   easier to modify the design or create completely new user interface.

 * Find anything on your wiki, instantly. New search engine and
   streamlined Google-like search interface, using multiple search
   terms, regular expressions, search term modifiers and boolean search.

 * Antispam - keep spammers out of you wiki. Protect your wiki with
   automatically updated spam patterns maintained on the MoinMaster
   wiki, and shared by all MoinMoin wikis worlwide.

 * Underlay directory - easy upgrade and maintenance. New streamlined
   directory layout protects all system and help pages in a separate
   underlay directory.

 * Run with your favorite server. Use either a standalone server that
   requires only Python, the high performance Twisted server, Apache with
   Fast CGI, mod_python or plain CGI.

 * Multiconfig - easier, more powerful configuration. New class-based
   configuration allow you to easily configure single or multiple
   wikis sharing a common setup.

 * Many more features and various bug fixes.

MoinMoin History

MoinMoin has been around since year 2000. Most of the codebase was written 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 a large number of
private installations.
