I'm pleased to announce that the Mylyn WikiText stand-alone package is available for download. The download contains jar files and documentation for including WikiText Ant tasks in your build or for using WikiText APIs outside of an Eclipse runtime.

The WikiText project is still in the incubation phase, thus users should be aware that the download has not yet completed a release review. The availability of WikiText stand-alone download enables users to try out WikiText prior to its release, including the much-anticipated wiki-to-DITA functionality.

This is the first time that WikiText stand-alone jars have been made available since the move of Textile-J to the WikiText project. WikiText includes many improvements and fixes since the Textile-J 2.2 release.

Many thanks to Mik Kersten, Steffen Pingel and others at Tasktop who have facilitated the WikiText project.
