It sports many new features for making your life easier.

GNUmed Wiki: TWiki now Foswiki

Hi all,

TWiki at was in need of an update because of security reasons. I did update TWiki and replaced it with Foswiki. Foswiki is a fork of TWiki over some licensing issues (can you say libreoffice).

Most likely some things will be broken because of that. I tried to think of most issues (Blacklist plugin, PublishPlugin) but if you notice something let me know.

Update: Peter Thoeny wrote in to ask me what gave the impression that TWiki was forked over a licensing issue. My memory has failed on me. It really seems to have been a trademark issue and governance model issues. TWiki has served us well and I would like to thank Peter and the team for their great work. The choice of Foswiki was really just that I remembered there was an alternative. Installation was easy and straightforward. To be fair I did not test the latest TWiki which might just be equally nice or even better.

GNUmed 1.1.7 for Windows finally available

Unfortunately packaging GNUmed 1.1.7 required some time consuming changes compared to GNUmed 1.1.4. We had to update python, wxpython and a few more including pyinstaller.

But finally it has happened and makes for a solid foundation for future versions (I hope).
