"When a forum is not enough"
The Tiki Community wishes to announce the Beta release of Tiki 13.0, the latest version of Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware. This beta release is expected to be followed soon by the final release, so please help to test the beta as much as possible. Following the Tiki tradition of naming versions after stars, Tiki 13 is named after Fomalhaut, one of the brightest stars in the sky.
Tiki 13.0 is the first Tiki to make use of the industry leading Bootstrap CSS framework, providing a much needed modernization to the look and feel of Tiki. This sets the foundation for mobile-friendly and device-responsive layout. Unfortunately, this means that many old themes will not be compatible and need to be converted. On the other hand, Tiki can now more easily make use of third party Bootstrap themes.
Upgraders should take note of various known issues documented on the release notes at Tiki13. The page also contains a list of enhancements in the latest version.
If you are starting a new Tiki install, please try Tiki 13 first in order to take advantage of the latest features. Nevertheless, upgraders and new users who require a higher degree of stability can remain on Tiki 12 which is a Long Term Support (LTS) version. But even if you plan only to upgrade when the next LTS version (i.e. Tiki 15) is released, it will be good to try Tiki 13 out as a preview of what is to come. For more information about which Tiki version is right for you, see the Tiki Version Lifecycle page (Version Lifecycle).
You can download the new Tiki 13 Beta (as well as all other Tiki versions) from Download.
