I’m proud to announce the availability of Deki Wiki 8.05.1 RC1 today! Deki Wiki 8.05.1 is an incremental Jay Cooke release with a high focus on improving performance of Deki Wiki. Performance gains were realized primarily in the API to support the millions of pageviews per month for Mozilla’s Developer Center. All of the performance development gains are documented; check it out for details and hard numbers. On our test environment on an Amazon EC2 large instance, we saw performance gains from 8.05 up to 1200%!
After consulting with you guys, we’ve decided to focus our attention on FCKeditor as our chosen editor. Starting with the Killen Woods (8.07) release, FCKeditor will be our default editor inside Deki Wiki – this release further stabilized FCKeditor to be used in production systems for aggressive bug testing before we switch it on by default.
The release notes for this release are a part of the Jay Cooke page; and as always, the download is available at SourceForge. Try it out now and let us know if there are any problems before the final release next week!
