Microsoft makes FlexWiki open-source

Microsoft said on Monday that it is dipping a third toe into the open-source waters, adding a collaborative creation program to the list of Microsoft efforts that the company is freely sharing.

The company is making available the code for FlexWiki, software for creating "Wikis" -- Web pages designed to cover a topic by allowing any number of users to create and edit content.

FlexWiki is the third piece of Microsoft code that the company has released this year under an open-source licence, all under the Common Public License (CPL). In April, Microsoft posted its Windows Installer XML (WiX) to SourceForge.net, following up a month later with the posting of the Windows Template Library (WTL) project.
