TWiki's user base consists of millions of users on 50,000 installations, backed by an open source community of hundreds of contributors.

TWiki.org, a leading provider of enterprise collaboration and wiki application development platform, today announced the general availability of TWiki-5.1.2 Community Release. This release supersedes earlier TWiki-5.1 releases, which introduced many usability enhancements, such as point and click user data management, more visual user profile pages with picture selector, and a backup feature to help upgrade TWiki sites. TWiki-5.1 also strengthens TWiki as an application platform to more easily build custom wiki applications.

TWiki-5.1.2 Community Release is available at twiki.org/.

"Over the last few year we transformed the community to be more focused on end-users, which resulted in a collaboration platform that is now much more appealing to non-technical users," said project founder Peter Thoeny. "I am very grateful to all community members who contribute ideas, specs, code, testing and documentation to the open source TWiki project. Would you like to join us? I invite you to get involved with the community to help build the next generation collaborative platform for the enterprise!"

TWiki Use at CERN
Besides companies, TWiki is also used by many universities and research organizations around the world. "The TWiki service quickly became popular at CERN following its introduction in 2003", said Peter Jones, system administrator at CERN. "TWiki has proven to be a simple and easy to use platform to create and develop collaborative documents, and today it is a key web collaboration tool for the LHC [Large Hadron Collider] experiments and many other user groups at CERN that consist of 1000s of users. At CERN TWiki is now more popular than ever with new users registering every day, and we are looking forward to deploying the new version that brings many usability enhancements. I am especially excited about the new user management feature that will reduce our workload."
