This happened quite a while back now and even more progress has been made, but I still think it's worth mentioning. Thanks to the herculean efforts by Craig Andera, FlexWiki has been branched in CVS to give a new branch that is built using .NET 2.0.
One of the things I've been working on - a little at a time, usually about half an hour a day - is a fairly extensive rewrite of FlexWiki. We're calling it FlexWiki 2.0, and not coincidentally, it involves an upgrade to .NET/ASP.NET 2.0.
This partial rewrite was driven by the desire to give FlexWiki a better authorization model. I still haven't even started on that part of it - first I had to untangle the existing caching code from the storage engine, and separate out a bunch of special processing that deals with something called "backing topics". Don't ask.
Many thanks to Craig for his continued involvements and effort on the FlexWiki project. Once 2.0 finally hits the streets I expect to be getting more involved with some of the mods I was working on a while ago. I felt that it wasn't worth committing them while Craig was doing such a major re-write.
