Tiki 19 was recently released by the Tiki Community (Tiki.org). A number of significant feature upgrades insure that Tiki remains future-proof and stays current with rapidly advancing technology. Key discussions were held among Tiki developers during WikiSuite Unconference 1 to hone the details of this release and guide the ongoing progress of the project.

Major upgrades in this version include an update from Bootstrap 3 to 4, which is good news for front end developers who can now take advantage of Bootstrap 4 power, such as SCSS pre-compiling and Flexbox layout, in Tiki templates and pages. Much attention was paid to the front end aspects of the project in this release, with Font Awesome updated from 4 to 5, Reveal.js slideshow integrated along with PDF export, menus enhanced with SmartMenus, and much more. The presentation features have been enhanced to enable building powerful and mobile-friendly displays such as this one.

Key new features include Plugin Diagram for easy building of flowcharts. XMPP chat rooms can now be embedded in a wiki page. Out of the box special-layout landing pages can be quickly created by using Plugin Layout in a wiki page. For a complete list of changes, please see Tiki 19.

Tiki 19.x is a Standard Term Support (STS) version and will be supported until Tiki 20.1 is released.
