A db dump is still disabled.
But with a small tool you can download the pages (in wiki format) and
images. A chm converter basically works.

The tool already does the linking.
I also implemented a simple search, which IMO already is quite useful.

The main problem is that currently ipro lacks many html/css features. And
many pages have bugs and non portable tags. These need fixing. I guess a
full week, which I don't have, because 1.0 bug has higher priority.

If someone wants to help, write me a mail.

But it is sufficient for a release.

In theory changed wiki pages can be merged back too. It's a simple xml file
per page.
