Well, here's the list of remaining features from the development home
This looks like it's at least partly implemented -- not sure what
* floating images
Use it but could work around using advanced tables until it's
Pretty much must have -- have simple tables and other block
elements embedded in advanced tables.
Not a big need for me
Yeah, for my one existing pmwiki I'd pretty much have to have
Others not on the list:
* spaced WikiWords
Users have gotten really use to this, and I'd hate to yank
I've created a workaround/alternative cookbook entry to handle
this for v2. Is using template functions better or worse than
special case variables?
* general documentation upgrade
Will have trouble fully switching to v2 until the full set of
editing/mark-up documentation is updated
What I'm looking forward to:
* cleaner link mark-up structure (although user re-learning
is a bit of a worry)
* cleaner internal mark-up system making extensions easier
* IncludeCSV :-)
(which would have been a mess to implement in v1)
