Since 2010 there have been 19 releases of BlueSpice. BlueSpice replaced the product HalloWiki at that time. BlueSpice was initially a collection of extensions that could be extended by individual software packages. In 2015, all existing extensions and individual modules were combined in one distribution. Delivering BlueSpice together with MediaWiki was the next logical step.
