OpenI 2.0 RC1 released!

Dear OpenI Community:

We are happy to announce the release candidate RC1 of OpenI 2.0 available for download.

There is also a demo available at http://demo.openi.org/openi (login is openi2/openi2)

We look forward to hearing your feedback on improving this release as we work on further testing of this version to get to general release. Please note that we are changing the license of OpenI to GPL v2 from this release. We will put a separate post to provide more information on that, but we feel that GPL is a much better option for us at the moment as it enables us to include other GPL-based components in our distribution.

Here're some more details on the release:

Files (available at: https://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=142873&package_id=287874&release_id=680493\):

* openi-2.0-RC1-server.zip
This is the complete distribution containing all the components necessary to run OpenI with a single click. This is in response to the feedback from our community about simplifying our installation process. We are quite happy with the result, and would love to hear your feedback.

* openi-2.0-RC1-tomcat.zip contains binary build specific to Tomcat 6.0x
* openi-2.0-RC1-jboss.zip contains binary build specific to Jboss 4.2.2 (and can be used for other j2ee servers as well)
* openi-2.0-RC1-src.zip contains full source code to make your own custom builds

New features and enhancements (beyond what was in OpenI 2.0 Beta):

* Create a view-only analysis: An administrator can now create an analysis in view-only mode, meaning the users can view the analysis only in a "static" mode. This is in response to some feedback where users wanted to create analyses that had a fixed template, and also when they want to restrict how much data can be viewed by the user.
