    4747I wanted to try to highlight the current state of this plugin as of r2732 (revisited at r4135). This is a very promising plugin in Trac and sometimes it is hard to determine how far along plugins are in development. The short story is that it is about 95% of the way to being suitable for "production" use, and it is usable now if one is willing to stand small quirks or the occasional bug. My department uses it to help improve Trac adoption and team acceptance by users not used to wiki format. We have been using it for quite a long time now (since 0.10), and it does work well to allow these users to contribute.

    49 Per the screenshots, all of the formatting is available. The biggest thing to note is that this plugin generates wiki code, not HTML or something else, so it will integrate with existing pages and work will with Trac's differences history, and installation is "revertible" in the sense that you can just opt to not use the editor if there are any problems.

    5151I evaluated this originally in Firefox 2, and a little in IE6 on Trac 0.10.5dev, but today we are using it with Firefox 3, IE7, and Trac 0.11. What has happened in out long deployment is that the most technical users (programmers on our team) use the original "textarea" functionality, but non-technical users always use "wysiwyg," and are quite productive at using it, and I haven't heard any complaints.
