Adds integrations with IBM Lotus and Google Docs
Open source enterprise content management (ECM) firm Alfresco Software has released Alfresco Community Edition 3.3, which includes a range of content services for developers, including integrations with IBM Lotus Social software and a preview of an upcoming Google Docs integration.
The new version of ECM tool with LGPL licensing and enhancements to document and WCM functionality, allows developers to deliver content-rich business applications leveraging CMIS 1.0 open source standards.
According to Alfresco, the new version provides an automated content formatting functionality that allows developers to build offerings to repurpose content for the web; and introduces a transfer service that helps developers to build offerings that transfer content between Alfresco repositories. It also includes integrations with IBM Lotus, and Google Docs that provides users with full online editing capabilities.
In addition, the new enhancements to content management platform Alfresco Share include, repository-wide content access, automated content rules, collaboration lists and Google like search. It allows users browse document management (DM) repository as well as project or collaboration sites and provides with a mechanism for tracking lists of items within the context of a project.
Google like search features offer users with advanced search that allows fields to be queried alongside text searches, such as finding documents by a given author created since a given date and containing a given text, the company said.
Alfresco Community 3.3 has been moved to the LGPL license, allowing developers to embed Alfresco into their offerings without affecting their existing business model or license.
