After a long hiatus and then a brief development sprint, Galaxy is here, with email-based password recovery and a few other things. Some of Sputnik's modules spun off into separate projects.

2008.02.08 - This site is now running Sputnik 8.01.01
This should stop the spam. This also means that a script to port the data from the old file is ready. I will release it in a few days once I have a chance to test it a bit more.

2007.10.31 - The first version of 0.3-beta
The first RC of Sputnik 0.3-beta is ready and is available in two versions: mini and full. I recommend that you start with mini, which has all the basic features, but not the more complicated examples and extensions.
2007.08.15 - Metapages implementation
A more complete implementation of Metapages committed in trunk and most of
the pages were converted to take advantage of this. A side effect of this is that
the list of fields for the page is now configurable on per-page basis. In other
words, to add a field to a class of pages, you just need to add an entry to the
fields field of their metapage. The templates do not yet use
.fields but they
2007.07.29 - LuaPOD works in Trunk
The version in trunk now works with Perl-style POD format. Lots of small fixes for display history in trunk.
2007.07.18 - 0.3.0 Alpha released
The site has been getting quite a few visits in the last few days, and since trunk was in a much better shape than the previous release (0.2.1), I fixed a few more bugs and cut a preliminary release - 0.3.0-alpha. "Alpha" here means that we are still working on the full version of 0.3 and the APIs may be unstable. There are no serious bugs in the code that we know of, however.
2007.07.08 - Big fixes in trunk
Lot of changes in trunk. Most if not all page attributes are now applied immediately
for the display of the page upon save. For pages that contain Lua code, including
show_content="show_content_as_lua_code" in the
actions field will ensure that the
code is validated whenever the page is displayed (even in preview) and any error
messages will be shown, with problem lines lighlighted. CSS for diff has been fixed.
wikifilestorage now have LuaDoc comments. (The luadoc pages
will be up shortly.)
2007.06.23 - Bug fixes in trunk, preview, internationalization
The version in trunk now has many bugs fixed and a few important features, including preview, Internationalization, and per-page RSS (yes, this means you can subscribe to the RSS feed of edits to this page at http://www.freewisdom.org/projects/sputnik/Timeline.rss). The Color Schemes support has also been documented.
2007.06.16 - Version 0.2.0, redesign of trunk
Version 0.2 has a release candidate, which is now sitting in its own branch (/branches/0.2.0). Meanwhile, the version in trunk has had its CSS refactored, allowing for easy modification of Color Schemes, plus a bunch of smaller visual changes.
2007.05.16 - Another round of re-factoring
I did another round of refactoring, changing the APIs a bit to get rid of more code. The refactored version is checked in as Revision 24. This change makes some of the documentation and examples slightly obsolete, but it will be fixed shortly.
2007.05.06 - The Sputnik Site is Up
The Sputnik Site is up at http://www.freewisdom.org/projects/sputnik/, self-hosted of course. I added a basic over (Sputnik), a description of the Conceptual Model and a few Demos. There is also a list of Tasks if you want to get involved.
