Tiki 13.1, 12.3 LTS und 9.9 LTS (previous) veröffentlicht

Author: Torsten Fabricius - Published

The Tiki Community freut sich, das Release der neuesten Upgrades ihrer drei aktuellen Stable Versionen bekannt zu geben.

Gestern, am 14. November haben wir Tiki 13.1 Stable herausgebracht, die aktuellste Stable Version der Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware. Dies ist auch gleichzeitig die letzte Version dieses kurzen 13er Zweiges, da in zwei Wochen die Präsentation (Branching) von Tiki 14 geplant ist und Tiki 14.0 noch vor Ende diesen Jahres herauskommen wird.

Weiterhin haben wir den aktuellen LTS Zweig aktualisiert. Wenn Du ein produktives Projekt betreust, das auf eine langzeitbetreute Version angewiesen ist, kannst Du Tiki 12.3 LTS über den unten angegebenen Link herunterladen. Der Tiki 12.x Zweig wird bis Ende 2018 unterstützt, jedoch wird das Responsive Design Framework Bootstrap definitiv NICHT in 12.x integriert werden.

Last but not least, schliesslich heisst Long Term Support bekanntlich Unterstützung für mehrere Jahre, haben wir uns auch um Tiki 9 gekümmert und ein paar Securityfixes eingepflegt. Damit bieten wir die neueste Version Tiki 9.9 LTS zum sofortigen herunterladen und upgraden an.

Tiki 13.1, 12.3 LTS and 9.9 LTS (previous) released at 14th of Nov. 2014

Author: Torsten Fabricius - Published

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.

Tiki 13.0 Release

Author: Nelson - Published

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

Author: Nelson - Published

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.

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

Author: Nelson - Published
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.

Tiki 6.xLTS and 9.xLTS support continues
The support period is as follows:
9.x LTS: Supported until Tiki 16.1 is released (November 2015)
6.x LTS: Supported until Tiki 13.1 is released (May 2014)

Which Version is Right for Me?
The Tiki Version Lifecycle page (http://info.tiki.org/Version+Lifecycle) will help you choose the right version to install.

Work is already well underway on Tiki13. The main change is the move to the Bootstrap mobile first front-end framework. Like any post-LTS version, it will have a lot of enhancements. In fact, current estimates of development planned will make it the release with the most development ever (in terms of developer hours)!
