Alfresco, a major provider of open source enterprise content management software, recently announced the release of Alfresco Community Edition 3.3.
The release includes integrations with IBM Lotus Social software. The company adds that a previous version of an upcoming Google Docs integration will be packaged with Alfresco Community Edition 3.3, which is now available for download.
Alfresco says the platform is the first ECM tool to enable developers to create content-rich business applications using CMIS 1.0 open source standards.
John Newton, CTO for Alfresco, says that the package offers compliance that is looking forward and can help users further their web application design.
"From CMIS 1.0-compliance that will future proof content application development, to LGPL licensing, Community 3.3 offers a range of new features and functionality that will continue to extend the free distribution and presence of Alfresco open source ECM," says Newton. "The enhanced content services in Alfresco Community 3.3 are designed to help organizations better manage web presence with tools designed to simplify the process of building content-rich web applications using CMIS."
Alfresco collaborated with IBM in early 2010 as well, when the company announced the availability of Alfresco Enterprise Edition 3.2. An Econtent Magazine report says that the partnership is "driven" by IBM”s desire to add content management to Lotus Notes.
