Release 0.08 now Alpha

Methodsupport with release 0.08 now has enough features to be worth looking at, so I have upgraded it to Alpha.

Methodsupport is a system for quickly producing process support web sites. It simplifies the process by requiring the administrator to just provide a "schema" file describing the forms and the workflow that define the process. The administrator can then generate the entire webiste by running a single command line.

Release 0.01

Release 0.01 is available, either as a tarball for download or from Subversion.

This release is intended to give a general idea of what the project is about and how it works technically. It does not have enough features to be useful for any real purpose.
