Bitweaver was born in late 2003 when a developer, spiderr, created a new branch of Tikiwiki dubbed “spidercore”. From spidercore a new project was forked, initially called TikiPro and later bitweaver. Bitweaver evolved with the priority of being modular and faster than Tikiwiki, e.g. by making as few database calls as possible.

Bitweaver adopts the ADOdb database abstraction library and the Smarty template engine. All pages are XHTML 1.0 Strict compliant and rely on CSS for styling. Bitweaver requires PHP version 4.1.0 or higher, and is released under the GNU Library or Lesser General Public License (LGPL).

Note: I’m not tracking bitweaver’s release announcements here, because on their site I can’t find a release announcements archive nor the permanent link to any individual release announcement.
