The collaboration software used to run Aalto Wiki was updated to version 4.3. The previous version was 3.5, so there are a lot of changes
in the service. The most noticeable change is the change from wiki-markup to fully fledged xhtml markup. Users who like to use wiki-markup
can still do so, either by writing it straight to the page editor, or using the wiki markup -macro, found in the Insert - menu. The editor then
coverts the wiki-marup into xhtml.

There are a lot of other changes as well, for instance the editor has fully changed. For more info on what has change please
read the AaltoWiki will be updated, so what's new? -page.
