To commemorate the 40th anniversary of the 9-Dec-1968 NLS 
demo[1], we take pleasure in announcing the release of the Purple 
MediaWiki (PMWX) Extension into beta today (9-Dec-2008) as free 
and open source software (under the GNU GPL v2 license.)    (01)

"Purple Numbers" have their root in the NLS system. They allow 
web content to be addressed at a fine granular level (for example 
you can point people to a particular paragraph in a web document, 
rather than just to a web page) and open up possibilities of 
improved navigation, communication, reference, search, semantics 
and knowledge support. PMWX enables "Purple Numbers" in MediaWiki 
and Semantic MediaWiki implementations, and provides that 
fine-grained addressability to wiki contents.    (02)
