ProWiki development started in 2001 by Helmut Leitner as a fork from UseMod Wiki, and since then it is used for wiki community projects at WikiService.at. ProWiki became open source software, and GNU General Public License (GPLed) in March 2006, to make it even more widely available.
- Strengths of the ProWiki engine
- CamelCase and underline_linking link creation, but crucially not wikilinks
- flexible wiki engine specialised for individual communities and application needs
- a consistent and extendible architecture grown in a long non-GPL development period
- a dedication to support active elements and editable active content (like Flash, SVG, Java) through the wiki interface
- the ability to host, support and moderate many wikis at multiple servers by cross-wiki abilities
- multilingual interface languages, available in English, French, German, Hungarian, Russian, and Spanish
