As always, this SMW release is the result of a team effort. We would not
have this release without the significant contributions from many great
people contributing new functionality, improving documentation, organizing
conferences, reporting issues and providing support.

We hope you enjoy the new release.

Cheers,

James & Jeroen

Just moved WikiApiary and all my other wikis to the new 1.9 release and made the leap to composer.

Re: Semantic MediaWiki 1.9 released!

jongfeli
We upgraded our company Wikis to MW 1.22.0 and SMW 1.9 last week and they have been running just fine since. We host our Wikis on a Windows box so I had to get used to using Git and Composer but once you know how it all works and your setup is working you don't want to use the "old way" of downloading extensions manually anymore.

So, a positive note for using Composer, yes you will need to learn a new trick but once you know what you are doing, building a new Wiki or updating a running Wiki is a lot easier with Composer and in my opinion that is a BIG understatement :)

Thanks to all.

Regards,

Felipe

Re: Semantic MediaWiki 1.9 released!

Peter Presland
Yes. I second that. I've just moved to a new server with brand new
installs of MW1.23 and SMW 1.9 + about a dozen extensions. Imported all
the existing data and all seems to be working fine.

The Composer install for 1.9 really was a doddle. I look forward to it
being available for all MW and extension upgrades as soon as possible.
