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!

This is great news, as a user of xwiki since < 1.0 versions, I really
appreciate last developments. It's still hard to make our wiki used by
people, and to have them collaborate (everyone talks about it, but only few
really care about it), and all things you quoted will really help for this.

Congratulations to all makers of xwiki ! :)

Jeremie
