Today, we're releasing Milestone 3 for the ViC 3.0 for evaluation and feedback. This is the third milestone in our migration to the Plone/OpenCore platform.
This version adds the following features:
Documents & Resources
Blogging (Docs & Resources can be posted to any blog software supporting the metaweblog API)
We are making our corse source code available, which can be installed in any Zope-2.9.6 server with the opencore and CalCMF products available. Additionally .debs for ubuntu dapper & feisty are also availible.
Just released is the first test release of the 2.5 with a (mostly) working installer. This should ease installation significantly.
If you choose to download and install, please report all bugs & complaints to the sf bug tracker. Thanks!
Three quick bits of news:
1) We have released an interim release that is for the brave folks who would like to try their hand at installing ViC with out an installation script. Issues should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
2) Our SVN repository is now live.
3) Commits to the subverison repository are noted in the vic-svn mailng list. The archive for the list is here:
The ViC team is happy to announce that the archives for our development and user mailing lists are now open to the public.
RSS feeds of the posts are also available.
