Tiki 9.0
The Tiki Community is proud to announce the release of Tiki 9.0, the latest version of Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware. This release, with more than 1,000 code contributions by dozens of Tiki Community members, includes many new features, some architectural enhancements, and many bug fixes.


Some of these new features include:

  • Improved batch actions based on a URL with a token access.
  • Extensive improvements to the Maps, Slideshow, Calendar, File Gallery and Drawings
  • New plugins and modules
  • Introduction of Timesheet functionality
  • The Smarty template engine was updated to 3.1.x
  • and much more!

Refer to http://doc.tiki.org/Tiki9 and the Tiki 9.0 Release Notes for details.

As is the tradition in the Tiki community, most of the *.tiki.org sites have been upgraded to 9.x before it was officially released. This helps find and fix bugs. Please see: tw:Dogfood.

The release of Tiki 9.0 marks the close of the Tiki 8.x branch. All Tiki Administrators using an 8.x version are encouraged to upgrade to Tiki 9.0. Tiki 9.x is a LTS (Long Term Support) version, and it will be supported until November 2015.

The Tiki community has also decided to extend long term support (LTS) for Tiki 6.x support until May 2014.
