Good News for the XWiki Open Source Project: French State Research funding

Ludovic Dubost

Hi XWiki Community,

I'm happy to share some good news for the XWiki Platform and Community
that we got today.

We (XWiki SAS) had responded to a French Government Call for Web 2.0
Projects in early July and we got the good news today that our project
was selected with 43 other projects (among 340 proposals) to receive
state funding.

In this project, where the research entity INRIA/ECOO and Open Source
company Mandriva are also participating, we have proposed to enhance
XWiki's social features and integrate Real-Time capabilities in XWiki
(both for editing information and viewing information in real-time).

We already worked with INRIA/ECOO on XWiki Concerto (offline and mobile
XWiki) which is the specialist in France and probably Europe of
Operational Transformation Technology (which is used in Google Wave for
real-time capabilities).

We'll talk more about the features this will bring to XWiki when we
formally launch the project. We don't know yet how fast it will go to
formalize the public funding and start the project (it usually takes at
least a few month).

It's great to be able to continue to work on innovative technologies in
the Wiki space, which is not that easy as we have already so much work
to package and polish all the great ideas and features that are already
in the XWiki platform.

It's also great to see the progress the XWiki software has made in the
last year, from XWiki 1.8 to XWiki 2.0 coming out soon. The new
rendering, new Wysiwyg editor, the Office Importer and now the new skin
are making XWiki do a lightyear of progress in just one year !

Ludovic

Congratulations! Even though this is important, I am sure this is one a
new small step toward an even greater product! I would like to "hijack"  
this thread to thank all  devs and users to make XWiki better every day.

Best wishes for a highly productive new course!

Pascal Voitot
I fully agree with you :)
Beyond congratulations, let me tell you that, now, when I say the word
"XWiki" when I propose professional solutions, people don't oppose against
it anymore and it even tends to bring some credibility to my propositions...
What does it mean? Is it XWiki itself gaining notoriety or is it Wiki
solutions generally which are  becoming more and more common? I will let you
guess...

Anyway, your announcement is good news and it means we can go on investing
time and money into XWiki because this is a project with a future (and a
past also ;))

Congratulations guys and go on because I'm interested in the new v2.0 and
all the new stuff and I hope I will be able to participate a bit more than
my recent busy months:)

regards
Pascal
