I am at an educational institution that has been using Wikidot.com and we want to shift to hosting our own Wikidot wiki farm. We would like to transition before the fall semester and I was hoping to install with the next new release. Is there any idea of a timeframe for that release (which I imagine would have the newest Wikidot.com bells and whistles included)? We need to know whether to go ahead with the existing install package or whether we should wait a couple of months and do install in June/July.
One thing for sure: the next release of open source Wikidot will be based on the newest code from Wikidot.com. But we currently have no plan on release date. I have no clue whether this will be in three months or more.

Also, is there any feature list for what is exactly in the current wikidot.org package? I want to make sure that there is at least close to functionality so that our users don't feel like they are usung something less than what they are used to.
One last thing, is there an easy way to transfer wikis from wikidot.com to a wikidot.org installation? This is a big question we are going to have to deal with as we now have a year's worth of work on the wikidot.com sites we would like to transfer over to our own wiki farm.
Thanks for all your help.
I have to make you sad:
- current available version has almost no "cool" features from Wikidot.com
- it should be quite easy to migrate pages from Wikidot.com sites to open source version through the API (once it's done in Wikidot.com)
- update to the next revision should be quite nice though
I would recommend you to stay at wikidot.com and then migrate to open source once the next release is issues. Which probably be in the next school year.
