New: private categories
The top-requested item of many users is now reality: you can mark any category on your wiki as hidden to the public, or less privileged members. This lets admins and members plot in secret without having to create separate private sites.

Wikidot introduces data entry forms
Wikidot data forms make it possible to build simple applications into your wikidot sites. A normal wiki page holds unstructured text. A wiki page with a data form holds structured data ("fields"). Structured data is easier to edit, to understand, and to work with in many cases.

Wikidot: profitable after 3 years
The Wikidot blog reports that Wikidot is making a growing profit. "When we launched Wikidot.com three years ago we had the vision of offering a reliable, fast, and economic way of building web sites, wikis, and social web applications. It was not clear, at the start, whether this plan would work. Today, I'm happy to be able to tell you that after almost a year of having introduced Pro accounts, Wikidot is making a modest but growing profit."

Wikidot.com database abandons spinning rust for Intel X-25 SSDs
The Wikidot.com blog reported today that "Wikidot.com's primary database sits on a RAID cluster of top-end Intel solid-state memory (SSD) drives. These are expensive but much faster than spinning rust, and much more reliable. The SSDs are Intel X25-E Extreme, one of the fastest SSD drives out there. We're seeing a 7x improvement in database response time, and a 3x improvement in page rendering time."
