        - OpenSearch support

The licensing change to GPL with a FLOSS exception brings a whole new world of opportunities to projects wnating to work with Alfresco.  Details about the implications of the change will be on our web site here:

The default configuration for all the bundles is HSQL.  There are instructions that can be found after installation that explain how to easily revert to MySQL.

The installer bundles have more configuration options for selecting which type of database you wish to use, and locations for storing content and indexes.

The open source version is available to download at:

Thank you again for your continued support,

The Alfresco Team.

IMPORTANT NOTE: It seems to take at least 24 hours for SourceForge to update its mirrors for the downloads to become available!
