What's new with TWiki

The upgrade made to TWiki at CERN in May 2012 incorporated both the Helsinki (5.0) and Istanbul (5.1) versions.

Helsinki is a major release introducing usability enhancements, feature enhancements, and adds extensions to strengthen TWiki as an enterprise collaboration platform

Istanbul is also major release that brings many usability enhancements (such as point and click user data management, more visual user profile pages with picture selector, and a backup feature (that helps upgrade TWiki sites) and strengthens TWiki as an application platform (such as a new macro language with parameterized variables).
