On 2017-04-04 we had a rather major disk malfunction that caused data loss. The data on this site is from 2016-11-05. We are still investigating possibilities to get newer backups, but please prepare for the worst. In the meanwhile InterTiki login (for editing) is temporarily disabled on this site.

This page and pages like it should not be on doc, as it's not about documenting Tiki, the application. Please see where.



Windows specific tools

This page lists the free software or inexpensive tools that can only be found under a MS Windows platform.
