SourceForge.net downtime? What it means and what happened?

By: luciash d' being  On: July 21, 2015 09:00 am EDT  (3684 Reads)
Perhaps you have noticed since Thursday (July 16th) that people were unable to download Tiki or browse/commit/fetch code from our SVN repository or send and read messages in our mailing lists. It is a result of SourceForge.net downtime (where our code is hosted and so are many other Open Source projects) caused by a storage fault:

Slashdot Media wrote:
The Slashdot Media sites experienced an outage commencing last Thursday. We responded immediately and confirmed the issue was related to filesystem corruption on our storage platform. This incident impacted all block devices on our Ceph cluster. We consulted with our storage vendor when forming our next steps. We have since been working 24×7 on data restoration, data validation, and service recovery.


Now, at least, the installation packages can be downloaded again from http://sourceforge.net/projects/tikiwiki/files/

Unfortunately, the restoration process is taking far too long and not just us, but a lot of projects are asking when the SVN repositories and mailing lists will be back online...

To be honest (and unfortunately): We don't know. All we can do is to wait and watch the updates in the SF.net blog and hope it will be back soon. Ideas have been floated on how to manage similar situations better in the future (e.g. have backup servers for downloading of Tiki packages, move to GIT, etc.)...

We will discuss more about the Sourceforge outage at our upcoming BBB roundtable meeting on Thursday. Everyone is welcome to join us there!

Releases and Patches
The Tiki Community is pleased to announce the release of the three current maintained stable versions upgrades of our marvellous software.

Yesterday on 14th of November we released Tiki 13.1 Stable, the latest stable version of Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware. This will be the last version of the short 13.x branch, as the branching of 14 is planned fortnight and the release of 14.0 is scheduled not after end of this year.

Aswell we have upgraded the current LTS branch. If you have critical productive projects and rely on long term support, you can download Tiki 12.3 LTS by using the link below. Support of Tiki 12.x will be continued until end of 2018, whereby the responsive design framework Bootstrap will NOT be backported to 12.x

Last but not least, as long term support lasts for several years, we cared about Tiki 9 aswell and added a few security and minor fixes. Thus we offer the latest version Tiki 9.9 LTS for immediate download and upgrade.

13.1 Stable

Fixes, stabilisation and enhancements (158 new commits)
Download Tiki 13.1


12.3 LTS

Fixes and minor enhancements (194 new commits)

New Tiki Community Video

Tiki 13.0 Release

By: Nelson  On: Aug. 05, 2014 11:46 am EDT  (18253 Reads)
Releases and Patches
The Tiki Community wishes to announce the release of Tiki 13.0, the latest version of Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware. 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.

The Bootstrap transition was planned to span two versions (Tiki 13 and Tiki 14). As such, Tiki 13 being the midway version is expected to be more rough around the edges than most other major releases. Upgraders should take note of various known issues documented on the release notes at Tiki13. The page also contains a list of enhancements and known issues in the latest version.

If you are starting a new Tiki install and wish to take advantage of the latest features, you should try Tiki 13 first. On the other hand, if you are looking for an older but more stable version, Tiki 12 which is a Long Term Support (LTS) version might be more suitable for you. If you plan only to upgrade with the LTS cycle (i.e. from Tiki 12 to Tiki 15), you could 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 (as well as all other Tiki versions) from Download.

Tiki 13.0 Beta Release

Releases and Patches
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.

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).

Tiki 12.2 LTS Release

By: Nelson  On: May 22, 2014 03:24 pm EDT  (14370 Reads)
Releases and Patches
The Tiki Community wishes to announce the release of Tiki 12.2 LTS, the latest version of Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware.

Tiki version 12.2 LTS follows up on the recently released version 12.1 LTS, urgently fixing a bug introduced in that version which caused toolbars to be removed when a site administrator makes any changes to existing toolbars, plus a few minor fixes. Also, we are aware that some users have timeout issues when choosing InnoDB instead of MyISAM as the database engine in the installer. This affects only certain server environments, and we are still working on the fix.

To learn more about what's in Tiki 12 LTS, see http://doc.tiki.org/tiki12.

All Tiki site administrators are urged to upgrade to a current version. If you downloaded Tiki 12.2 from Sourceforge in the last couple of days prior to this announcement, please re-download it, as the packages that were there prior to the release announcement were missing some changes to the database structure related to the forum feature.

We currently plan in the coming weeks to release Tiki 12.3, the next in the Tiki 12 Long Term Support series, at about the same time as the new Tiki 13.0, which will introduce several framework changes including the move to the Bootstrap mobile-friendly front-end framework. To learn more about this upcoming major version, see http://doc.tiki.org/tiki13.

Tiki 12 is a Long Term Support (LTS) version. To determine which Tiki version is right for you, see the Tiki Version Lifecycle page (http://info.tiki.org/Version+Lifecycle).

You can download the new Tiki 12.2 LTS (as well as all other Tiki versions, including pre-release development builds) from http://info.tiki.org/download.
