The draft roadmap is at

The current plan is to convert pmwiki markup to LaTeX markup and use
LaTeX to typeset page collections. This gives us tremendous layout 
power and top quality output. It also makes the job much easier, as 
we convert wiki markup to LaTeX markup and the rest just happens 
(waves hands airily).

In the PmWiki 1 demo you ran, pmwiki is running on a Linux host
in Auckland and LaTeX is running on an old white iMac in my
office in Wellington. The idea is that the pdf2you service can 
be anywhere -- give it a url and it gives you back a pdf.

We plan to carry this design through to the next version. The
difference is that pmwiki will deliver LaTeX instead of HTML.
