Deki Wiki “Itasca”; the Ultimate Software Developer Collaboration and Mashup Platform

I have been playing with Deki Wiki for a while now, trying to utilize it for a project I am working on. It is me the one who is slow and cumbersome, not the DekiWiki. Actually it is running right now on a virtual machine on this same computer I am working on. I have gone through a few upgrades since I started and system has been running smoothly. I just need to make mind up for going live. Now I am about to upgrade to Itasca.

Here is their press release.
