Paradigm shift

We decided to change the implementation platform from Java to Python/Zope 3. For now there is no new release but if you're curious take a look at our cvs (http://taopis.cvs.sourceforge.net/taopis/CVSROOT/) where you can find the actual source. We got a new developer and hope now that the development process will speed up.

Documentation

The whole documentation about this project is available on http://tiaktiv.phazer.info
but for now only in Croatian (translators needed!). Actually we are working on the UML model of the system (using HIDS Case). As soon as the model is in a "good looking" state we will release it here for consideration. The model is in english so no translation is needed.
