BlueSpice free

BlueSpice free is an open source and free of charge MediaWiki distribution, which is developed especially for companies and business. MediaWiki is still the basis and BlueSpice is installed on top to enrich the function range of the wiki with lots of useful features. Even if BlueSpice extends the functionality of MediaWiki and also gives it a completely new look, MediaWiki remains unaffected as the technical basis of the BlueSpice wiki!


The free software gratis and licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL) v2 or higher.


The current release of BlueSpice is version 2.27.0.


BlueSpice free is composed of different extensions. Therefore, this is also applies to its functionality, which means that the features of BlueSpice free arise from the particular feature of the extension.

For a more clearly presentation of the single extensions, we registered them in an extra article in which you can find a short description about the functionality for every extension. The extension names are, of course, linked to the appropriate extension article.
