I've very pleased to announce the release of OpenIT 2.0. The last stable version of OpenIT, 1.4, was released on November 1st, 2004. Lots of new features have been added, and the entire codebase has be reorganized and made more object oriented.
OpenIT is a free IT management web application aimed at Small to Medium sized Businesses (SMBs) written in PHP. It has a number of sections to organize IT resources including: Computers, Peripherals, Software, Employees, Support Tickets, Knowledge Base, Policies, and News. It also has simple Out of Office support as well as simple Reporting. A web based HTML Editor (FCKEditor) is builtin to make creating rich text easy and cross platform compatible.
Documentation can be found in the /doc/ directory as well as on the community site. The forums on the SourceForge.net project page are an excellent source of user support. Synthesys Solutions offers commercial support and sponsored development of OpenIT. Please contact the lead developer, Michael Schurter, for more information.
While 2.0 has gone through a long development cycle including 3 release candidates, 3 betas, and 4 alphas, a couple of features are not present in 2.0: Notifications and cross-database support. The original developer for Notifications, Dan Coulter, has not been able to devote much time to OpenIT development in the 2.0 cycle, but hopefully notifications will be added again soon. The development team is striving to make OpenIT support as many databases as possible, and we welcome any patches from people using non-MySQL databases.
