More stability for TWiki 4.2 - Over 150 bugs fixed

2008-08-04 - 20:52:10 by MartinSeibert in Development
The TWiki community has just released a big patch release for the newest TWiki version 4.2. In the new release, that can be found at http://www.twiki.org/cgi-bin/view/Codev/TWikiRelease04x02x01 both stability and performance have improved. One main focus was to improve the reliability of the WYSIWYG-editor: "We have made big improvements with this feature that brings TWiki one more step closer to the community of non-tech-savvy people." says Kenneth Lavrsen (Motorola), who is in charge of release management for the community.

  • TWiki 4.2.0 was released January 2008 and introduced some hot new features that make TWiki a better user experience for both beginners and experienced application developers. It also contained quite a number of bug fixes since 4.1.2.
  • TWiki 4.2.1 is a patch release which only contains bug fixes. More than 150 bugs have been fixed since the release of 4.2.0 in all areas of TWiki.
  • It is highly recommended to upgrade TWiki 4.2.0 to 4.2.1. Users will find the 4.2.1 much more stable in daily use.

TWiki-founder Peter Thoeny adds: "It is a strong sign for both the community and the market, that our core development team has fixed all these severe and minor bugs within the last weeks. I am glad, that the community showed their ability to deliver. My special thanks go to KennethLavrsen, SvenDowideit and CrawfordCurrie."
