Records Management Community 2.4.a-EA

Blog Post created by davidcognite Employee on Mar 21, 2016

If you head along to the Alfresco wiki, you’ll see that there’s a shiny new community version of the Alfresco Records Management module. We released RM 2.4.a yesterday.

RM 2.4 is mainly for compatibility; ensuring that RM works smoothly with all the changes in the recently release Alfresco One 5.1, and 2.4.a targets 5.1.e. It’s an Early Access version, meaning that we’re still working on fixing the last few bugs.

This is the first version we’re releasing following the work we did last year to allow us to make some of the new features Enterprise only. This means that some of the features I previewed in September's Tech Talk Live will only appear in the Enterprise 2.4 version, but RM remains open source and the core of the module will always be available for free in our community release. As the Community amps are the core of the Enterprise version, RM Community now also benefits from exactly the same level of testing our Enterprise releases go through.

You may have noticed that our GitHub mirror is lacking recent activity. We’ve changed our version control systems in-house and have been too busy getting the release out to fix the mirroring. It's a priority for me to get that working, hopefully before 2.4.b comes out.

So, please download 2.4.a, read the release notes, check out the documentation, and let us know what you think.

Enjoy,
David.
