Tackle is a small ACL authentication module for PHP database applications.
Yes folks, after almost a year of stagnation, Tackle is slowly making its way back to life. Version 0.7.8 sports an improved configuration system, an adodb-xmlschema based installer and uninstaller, and fixes some recursive behavior that was supposed to be there but wasn't.
Tackle is available for download at http://sourceforge.net/projects/tackle.

Tackle is a small drop-in ACL permissions class for PHP. It is designed to be small, flexible, simple to deploy and use, and database independent (using the ADOdb Database Library). This alpha release is the first public version of tackle. It provides a full API for creating and managing users, groups, resources, and permissions. While the inheritance model isn't fully implemented and the ACL system is still a bit simplistic, it should be robust enough to for initial use.
