MoinMoin, what a wonderful wiki application

I recently upgraded the MHVLUG website to MoinMoin version 1.5.2, after a long evening of redoing my Moin MHVLUG Theme (requiring some python hacking as well as css changes). The new version features a GUI Editor, which, while not perfect, is really impressive. It is a piece of JavaScript code that formats graphically in the edit buffer when you edit the wiki page. The most impressive part of this is the table support, which has full key bindings that you’d expect from a spreadsheet application. Again, there are still bugs (I reported one today), but what an amazing lowering of the barrier to entry in using Wikis this is.
