CLiki news is finally up on the cliki2 software (the ALU wiki has been running it for a while).

CLiki2 features real user accounts, effective anti-spam protection, and much improved article versioning (you now get graphical diffs like Wikipedia, among other things). Change notification for the whole wiki and for each individual article is provided by ATOM feeds. There is now code coloring support. Pages can be deleted for real. The layout and ATOM feeds have been designed to be accessible, and work great in console browsers.

The biggest casualties in the move were latin1 characters (some pages were a mix of utf-8 and latin1, and latin1 lost). In particular, if your name contains a lot of accents, I aplogize.

So grab yourself an account, read up on tips for writing CLiki pages, and contribute some information about Common Lisp libraries or other topics.

If you want to write about Lisps other than Common Lisp, the ALU wiki is the place. Right now it is a little sparse and could use more contributions.

Right now there's no link - you can just click Edit and get the source from the textarea.

Is cliki2 actually in quicklisp? I don't see it there.

Not yet. I haven't asked Zach to put it in Quicklisp.
