The Wikimedia Foundation just released its new Annual Plan.



A heads-up for MediaWiki administrators and users: we're developing a visual
(WYSIWYG) editor, to make it easier for novice users to edit.  This is a big
project that will take many months.  We aim for "first opt-in user-facing
production usage by December 2011, and first small wiki default deployment
by June 2012."

You can find more information at http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Future and
discuss the development on the wikitech-l and wikitext-l lists.
