At my knowledge, could be wrong, old swiki run on 3.7 and not on any newer
As part of my "Experiments" have a HV2 based code which mimics it.
Can be see on http://www.squeakros.org as HVNaughtieWiki
Also in http://www.squeakros.org you could see CuisWiki , which is reduced
Cuis (2 mb) on top I put all necessary for being some compatible with
regular Trunk (Squeak 4.3)

Both run in a G4 Power Pc !!
Which is my goal, in my country we have tons of obsolete hardware like it
and like Pentium 3 computers.

So you have a crude version of original Swiki plus several enhancements via
internal and external javascript.
In fact, one of my modifications lets have JQuery, Prototype or MovTools
code in your html rendered via HV2.
Also can have web rendered morphs and direct input to smalltalk, like in
HVCaptcha and others.
All is experimental, not even alpha, but if you have a couple of good
students I could coach via Skype, let me know.

How to use.
Connect via http://www.squeakros.org , choose HVNaughtieWiki or CuisWiki, or
direct or
User visita
pass: (nothing to type)

When time expires, text go encripted and you need click HVCaptcha


PS. Have patient, is a G4 and cablemodem is slooooow
