The markup syntax has changed a bit, and now you have to say
[[http://www.example.com|example]] (double brackets, required bar).
Single brackets are gone since some 1.x version I think.

And yes, as I noted in a previous post moin2 is *not* production-ready
yet and I don't suggest you jump ship now. :)

What I do strongly suggest, however, is that you upgrade to moin1.9
first, since 1) there has been many security fixes[1] which are not
backported to old versions, and 2) upgrade to moin2 will only be
supported from moin1.9.

Instructions on upgrading are available in the moin1.9 source tree[2];
also check out the moin1.9 installation doc[3]. If you encounter any
problem during the upgrade, feel free to ask on #moin channel on

Looking forward to good news.
