The following notes discuss the release information for Alfresco Enterprise Edition 3.0

New and Enhanced Share Features

The original Alfresco web client is now referred to as the Alfresco Explorer, to distinguish it from the new Alfresco Share web client.

Alfresco Share has many new and enhanced features.


For instructions on how to install Alfresco Enterprise 3.0, refer to the Administering an Alfresco ECM Production Environment guide, available via the Alfresco customer and partner repository.


For this release, the Alfresco Share client requires Flash Player Version 9.0.45 to upload files and viewing Flash previews.

  • You can download Flash Player v9 from the Adobe site here:

  • The Uninstaller for Flash can be found on the Adobe site here:

Known Issues

The following known issues are associated with this release:

  • Kerberos is not supported in the Share application
  • Flash 10 is not supported for preview and upload in the Share application
  • Wiki page history is only accessible in the Alfresco Explorer application
  • Multiple instances of Alfresco in a single Oracle instance is supported, but requires some manual schema operations
  • Enabling quotas on an existing repository takes considerable time and should only be enabled after upgrading to 3.0.0 (due to costly interaction with other data upgrades)
  • Tomcat does not always close down completely, but can be safely terminated
  • Source code for Share and Surf is not in the SDK, but is available from SVN
