Group-Office groupware: 3.0 released!

Take your office online with Group-Office groupware. Share projects, calendars, files and e-mail online with co-workers and clients. Easy to use and fully customizable, Group-Office takes online collaboration to the next level.

After more then one and a half year of development time and testing it's finally there!
We are proud to present Group-Office 3.0, Group-Office needed to be modernised.
New web techniques have been developed and are ready to use in a professional platform
such as Group-Office. We completely rewrote the interface of Group-Office. It feels much
more like a desktop application now with drag and drop features, flexible information panels
and much more!
Besides the eye candy and usability enhancements a lot has been improved under the hood too.
The database adapter has been rewritten to use the improved MySQLi extension for better security.
Data sent to the database is checked for attacks at the lowest level so it's impossible for
developers to write insecure database queries when they use the Group-Office framework. A lot
more has been done to improve security like insecure image blocking in the e-mail module.
It's impossible to name every change here in this message, you should check out the
new version for yourself!
