News: Teamwork 4.0, Java web based project management, available
Teamwork developers are pleased to announce the availability of Teamwork 4.0; a release announcement is available on the blog: http://blog.twproject.com/2009/01/30/teamwork-40-released. Teamwork is distributed as a shrink-wrapped application, with a friendly graphical multi-platform installer, and an easy startup path, compatible with Project Managers from non IT-fields. But it also includes in its core several typical "enterprise” features, which you usually find only in custom solutions. It is a web based purely Java project and groupware application, running on Hibernate, and release 4 extends project tree management with JBPM-based business processes. New features cover also full text search (extending Hibernate Search), iCalendar, Subversion and Twitter integration. Teamwork is made entirely in Java, runs on JDK5/6, Tomcat (and compatibles) and any relational database. A free trial license and a multi platform (Windows, OSX, Linux) graphical installer can be downloaded here http://www.twproject.com/download.page. We also give free licenses for reviewers: http://www.twproject.com/licensing.page. Teamwork is presented on this site: http://www.twproject.com. For help there is a forum: http://www.twproject.com/forum , and user voice can be heard at http://feedback.twproject.com. Hope to hear your feedback, regards, Teamwork staff

- Why license is needed? by Manoj Gupta on February 12 2009 02:16 EST
I've installed it and liked it for the 15 minutes I put into it. I'm not clear about the upgrade path per user.
You mean going from installed demo to licensed? In this case, you just have to insert a non trial license: see http://www.twproject.com/licensing.page. If you mean from demo to a hosted, see http://www.twproject.com/onlineservice.page. If you mean from v3 to v4, the installer takes care of that. Or you mean doing some custom development on the application?
I mean cost, from one version to the other, and is it an annual thing?
If you install Teamwork in your intranet, licenses are non expiring for the major version: that is, if you buy a license for version 4, you get also all updates for version 4. If then version 5 comes out and you decide to upgrade, there is a limited upgrade cost, less than 50% of a full license cost. If you get Teamwork hosted, there is an annual cost.
It is an opensource project. This can be download from sourceforge ( http://sourceforge.net/projects/teamwork ). Could you please explain me why licensing cost is needed? Is it for installation and support?
On Sourceforge there is only the persistent part, which can help in developing external modules and integrations. Complete sources are available for free to all license holders.
