The team at Atlassian have just released version 4.0 of their fantastic Wiki platform, Confluence.
You can find out more information here: Faster. Richer. Simpler. A new standard in content collaboration.
We have already downloaded the upgrade (as we have been using Confluence for a year or so now for documentation) and installed it without a hitch.
We have our instance running on a new Mac Mini server under Lion, using Apache as a front-end web server and SSL security.
The upgrade took around 5 minutes, and thus far, no issues.
If you are looking for a great collaboration tool, with fantastic support and regular updates, lots of built-in features and tonnes of plugins, check out Atlassian and their Confluence product.
The best part – for small businesses, just getting started, licenses begin at $10/year.

I need to set up a private intranet for our small charitable organisation. Confluence looks ideal. The pricing is right. If someone sets it up I think I could handle admin; Can I install and run Confluence 4.0 using my existing Mac OS X workstation? (standard iMac w/Snow Leopard and good deal of memory. Is this possible? What addl. software to install and hardware would I have to buy? Thanks for the recommendation!
You need to get a MySQL database up and going for data storage.
The easiest way is using the MySQL installer from MySQL.com.
Once you have it going, there is a bit to do to get it running behind Apache, but it does run straight on port 8090 without too much configuration.
