News: Alfresco Enterprise Content Management 1.1 Released

  1. Alfresco 1.1, an update to the open source enterprise content management system, has been released. Alfresco provides a repository as well as an application to manage the repository, and has been designed for developing portal content, or replacing uncontrolled shared drives.

    This update features security and permissions framework as part of the open source version.

    Alfresco has been implemented with open source projects such as Spring, Hibernate, and Lucene. It is also a Java Content Repository level 1 implementation with the first phase of level 2 available in this release, and provides the following features:
    • Library Services (Check-in/out, versioning)
    • Smart Spaces (Rules and Conditions)
    • Desktop File Access (CIFS, FTP)
    • Auditable Content
    • Workflow
    • Content Categorization
    • Data Management and Transformation Engine e.g. Word to PDF
    • Content Streaming
    • Advanced Search (Lucene full-text, Meta-Data and Custom Meta-Data, Content, Location and Category Search)
    • Administration
    • Advanced Security
    • Virtual File System making ECM as simple as a Z: drive
    • Team Collaboration
    • Automatic Meta-Data Extraction
    • Document and Folder templating and dashboards
    There are two downloadable packages, one with Tomcat and the other with JBoss Portal. Alfresco can use any database supported by Hibernate.

    Alfresco is designed to run as a content server, providing a DAV interface, CIFS interface, web services, and a custom Alfresco API in addition to the Java Content Repository implementation. With the different deployment models (open source, professional, and enterprise editions) Alfresco is targeting all levels of content management needs, with the enterprise edition including failover, cache, single signon, and other capabilities.

  6. Security and User Management[ Go to top ]

    This update features security and permissions framework as part of the open source version.
    I looked at 'Compare product' document (http://www.alfrescosoftware.com/assets/pdf/comparison.pdf)

    Security and User Management features are available only in Professional and Enterprise editions.

    But without these features a content management is absolutely useless.

    So, what value present a OpenSource edition?

    These features are now available as part of the Open Source version in 1.1. The PDFs on the web-site will be updated to reflect this soon.
