KnowledgeTree document management with Web 2.0
KnowledgeTree on Monday announced the release of version 3.4 of the KnowledgeTree Document Management System. This new version includes various Web 2.0 collaboration features such as tagging, tag Clouds and Really Simple Syndication (RSS).
KnowledgeTree aims to provide a simple yet powerful, low-cost and open source alternative to existing proprietary document management systems which can be too costly for smaller businesses.
“Consumer Web 2.0 applications, which help people publish and manage content with ease, are some of the most popular and well-trafficked sites today. KnowledgeTree now brings the same power and simplicity to business, helping people store, share, track and manage their business documents and emails with the same ease and intuitiveness,” said Daniel Chalef of KnowledgeTree developers Jam Warehouse.
The inclusion of tags and tag clouds allows for easier storage and categorisation of documents. Once documents are uploaded, users are notified of updates by email or RSS feeds.
Along with RSS and tagging capabilities, KnowledgeTree 3.4 includes server-side integration with OpenOffice.org, document to PDF conversion capabilities and an updated Apache, MySQL and PHP software stack.
KnowledgeTree’s vision is to make document management simple. The web-based application is built on the popular open source LAMP (Apache/MySQL/PHP) stack and has been downloaded more than 280 000 times to date.
All of these enhancements are available now in KnowledgeTree Open Source Edition. To download the open source version of KnowledgeTree, go here.
KnowledgeTree is available in three additions: KnowledgeTree Enterprise, KnowledgeTree SMB and KnowledgeTree Open Source. The commercial editions of KnowledgeTree are sold with access to priority support and offer additional functionality that provides a familiar Windows Explorer and Microsoft Office interface into the document repository and direct-to-repository scanning capability.
Daniel Chalef told Tectonic that they will be releasing a web services application in the next month. He also added that any community members wanting to either find out some of the additional functionality or become involved in the project, should go to the wiki and the forge sites respectively.
