Older Items

  • April 3, 2008 - Hardware Problems
    The server's motherboard recently failed, I had a backup thankfully, as was able to get the wiki back up within a few hours, but the "Spare" was only available due to it being replaced due to instability in a desktop system, so theres no guarantee that the wiki will stay up in the long term. I would like to build a new dual core system (the current hardware is an old Socket A, Athlon XP based setup, very hard to find hardware replacements for) for the wiki and other allegro related services, if anyone would like to help, please let me know.
  • November 18, 2007 - Possible downtime
    I'm hearing some ominuous sounds coming from the server, I suspect Harddrive issues, so I'll be running S.M.A.R.T. tests just in case, and the offline tests may actually cause slowdowns or cause one or more of the drives to pop offline at any time, if that happens, please don't be alarmed (yet ;))
  • October 31, 2007 - Wiki up again
    As announced on the mailing list by Tomasu, the wiki is up again. It may run unstable for some days, but shouldn't go offline completely for weeks again. There's also a new dev meeting coming up on Saturday in case you are interested. Oh, and happy Halloween :)
  • August 4, 2007 - Developer meeting
    Should be impossible to have missed the info, but today there will be another developer meeting in IRC.
  • August 3, 2007 - Wiki categorization
    The Allegro Wiki has been fully recategorized into a sensible, hierarchal structure. For more information, see the Manual of Style page about it.
  • July 22, 2007 - Allegro 4.2.2 is Released
    This is mainly a bug fix release, so all 4.2 users should upgrade to it. There are now MSVC projects files and a makefile for DMC.
  • July 21, 2007 - Allegro mascot
    As you can see, we have a new logo on the wiki - but its copyright state is unclear. So head over to Mascot discussion and help create an entirely new one.
  • July 20, 2007 - Possible Service Interuption

  • February 9, 2007 - New Address + Upgrade Again
    Thanks to Matthew Leverton over at, we have an additional address for the wiki, Also MediaWiki has been upgraded to 1.9.2 to fix some XSS (Cross Site Scripting) vulnerabilities. Special note, the current url will not go away.
  • February 7, 2007 - Wiki upgrade
    The wiki has been upgraded to MediaWiki 1.9.1. This means, among other things, that authentication now works. So your user account also enables you to edit these pages.
  • January 27, 2007 - New Mediawiki look
    The old TWiki based wiki has now been replaced with a MediaWiki one. For now, it runs on a somewhat older version, and accounts are separate from existing accounts. We hope to resolve both issues soon (one the current frequency of editing due to the announcement of the new wiki has somewhat slowed down).
