The development of SnipSnap was continued, in some forks, SnipIt appeared on July 9, 2007 [2], by Paulo Abrantes, as a possible continuation of software that already contained some extensions not present in the latest SnipSnap version. Later another fork, called SnipSnip, by Angelo Schneider, appeared and Paulo Abrantes proposed a fusion [3].

  • simple links with phrases and sentences
  • name spaces
  • Groovy scripting as part of the wiki
