Apple has informed customers that the improvements released for the Wiki Services marked "v1.1 only" are delivered in the newly-launched Mac OS X Server v10.6.4 Update v1.1. Server users who’ve installed the original Mac OS X Server v10.6.4 Update (build 10F569), or the Mac OS X Server v10.6.4 Update for the new Mac mini (build 10F2025), can get the v1.1 improvements by installing the Wiki Server Update 1.0 for Mac OS X Server v10.6.4. The update is free for all Mac OS X 10.6.4 Server users.
“This update includes startup and reliability improvements for the wiki service,” Apple states. “The update is recommended for servers running Mac OS X Server v10.6.4 build 10F569 or 10F2025.” The respective improvements are already included in Mac OS X Server 10.6.4 Update v1.1, according to the Mac maker.
In a Support document updated on July 22, Apple describes the changes delivered in Mac OS X 10.6.4 Server, including some v.1.1 specific ones, which modify the way Wiki Service behaves. One change is the improved startup and login performance for wiki, particularly for servers bound to a large directory or hosting a large number of wikis, Apple claims. Another allows movies on wiki pages to be viewed by iPad users.
Authentication by users who have high-bit characters in their full name, while high-bit characters are now "extended ASCII" characters such as ü or é. The update allows access to wiki group calendars from the iCal application, prevents wikis and blogs from becoming inaccessible after migrating from Leopard Server to Snow Leopard Server, allows users to access wikis using a secondary shortname (alias), and last, but not least, shows private blogs to the blog owner. An issue that could prevent the Wiki service from rebuilding its index (globalindex.db).
