MoinMoin Wikis Updated

All of the current wikis running on our website have been updated to Moin 1.7.2.

The main changes that you'll see are related to the markup syntax that the wikis use; in particular, you can now create named internal links using the syntax

[[PageName|description]]

External named links are formed the same way, with the URL replacing the PageName argument. See the HelpOnMoinWikiSyntax page on your wiki for more details about what's available.

Your current pages should have been converted to use the new syntax by the update process, but you might want to look through them to be sure.

Please let me know if anything seems to have "gone missing"; I have backups and can look through them to find things or try the conversion again.
