The multiplatform desktop client can connect to any CMIS compatible data repository, but has been designed to work best with Alfresco to provide a familiar "explorer" look and feel for users. Vic will check-out a document to the local workstation, open it for editing and then manage the check-in process for the user. As well as dragging and dropping files to/from the repository, it can also upload emails. The development framework is extensible and it will be possible to add other data sources.

Tested against Alfresco Community versions 4.0 and 4.2

NOTE: Vic is not compatible with versions of Alfresco prior to 4.0
