First announcement was in my blog:

http://packages.debian.org/dokuwiki

The info plugin - but this was only an example. I guess Chris Smith
wrote the first real one, but I'm not sure which one it was.

Hmm release 2005-02-06 was pretty important because it changed from
local character encodings to UTF-8.

Another really important milestone was the switch to the new
objectoriented parser-renderer mechanism intially written by Harry
Fuecks. Initial ideas were posted in his blog at
http://www.sitepoint.com/blogs/2005/01/11/oop-and-performance/

Maybe others can add their view on the history as well :-)
