The rise of the Foswiki: behold Foswiki 1.0.0 !

Today, we celebrate the first release of Foswiki. It is quite exhilarating, as since the TWiki community was kicked out brutally by the founder Peter Thoeny in Oct 2008, it has been an hectic ride to get this release out of the door.

On the other hand, it was hilarious to see Peter Thoeny, left alone in his now deserted "community" of ... himself plus one employee, trying to pretend everything was normal and having formal weekly meetings by themselves, like a modern Robinson Crusoe and Friday on their deserted island...
