Alfresco will ship this week a major upgrade of its enterprise content management system that features new collaboration services, a draft implementation of the CMIS spec and Microsoft SharePoint support.
Alfresco Enterprise 3.0, due for release on October 31, features Share, a collaborative content solution that eases capturing, sharing and accessing information across virtual teams. Share offers a document library, search functionality, activity feeds, the ability to easily create virtual teams, personalized dashboards and support for content creations tools such as Microsoft Office, blogs and wikis.
The upgrade also offers support for the Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) specification and the Microsoft Office SharePoint Protocol to enhance its operation in mixed environments.
Finally, the open source CMS system enables rapid application development using lightweight, standards-based scripting, rather than .NET or Java, according to the release issued by the London. UK and Palo Alto, Calif. company on Wednesday.
Alfresco will host a webcast on Enterprise 3.0 on November 6.
