Webwidgets in SVN

Filed under: Uncategorized by peter at 15:25

Although WebWidgets is not finished yet, I decided to commit WebWidgets to svn, so that you guys can take a first look.
Only VS80 solution files are recent now, events are still incomplete, and I am not really happy with the way ExtJS tables are rendered. Main development branch of WebWidgets is from now on the Subversion trunk branch. The old sandbox version will continue to live for a few weeks (maybe we can still reuse a bit from the code there).
For those willing to check it out: start the ExtJs testsuite in the bin folder, execute. Then open the generated HTML files in your web browser.
There is still plenty of work left…

The Future of the Wiki and Forums (cont’d)

We have some good news regarding the state of the POCO website. In summer, two interns will help us to do a major overhaul of the website. The following is planned:

  • Some graphical/design facelifting
  • Kick out tiki and replace it with MediaWiki and phpBB
  • Integrate the user management of WordPress, MediaWiki and phpBB
  • Implement a single-sign-on feature for WordPress, MediaWiki and phpBB

All existing tiki content (FAQ, Forums, Wiki) will be transferred to the new site. Work will start in July and we hope to complete the transition by September.
