Not yet a year, but almost!

Posted by dcaruana Employee Jun 16, 2006
Believe it or not, Alfresco (source code and all) was released into the wild on June 27th 2005.

The Alfresco Community born on that day will soon be 1 year old.  So, Happy Birthday.

A year doesn't seem long enough to have developed the Alfresco product we have today (ok, development actually started in Mar 2005), but that rate of development can only come from the Open source approach where engineering have direct contact with the community and the community have direct contact and contribution channels with engineering.

Here's to the next year of joint product development.  Cheers.

A Narrow Escape

Jeff Waugh on how Ubuntu got it's name and avoided getting named after that funny station at the wrong end of the Picadilly Line.

Incidentally, Dapper rocks! It seems the team have really used the extra six week period at the end of the development cycle to really add a lot of polish to the OS. Whoever thought brown could be so preeety? :-)
