[ Thanks to for this link. ]

PRESS RELEASE -- Digital Spinner, a web design and development company, announced today the fourth release candidate of the GroupIT Engine, a PHP-based content management and group collaboration system capable of powering the next generation of web sites, intranets and extranets. Notable new features include an improved installation script, dynamic questionnaires, a re-designed default theme and a suite of management conveniences. The entire source code for the GroupIT Engine is available for download.

Written entirely in PHP, GroupIT is a web site and/or extranet management solution borne from several years of research, development and real-world use. Its modular architecture contains many features that ease management of a large web site. In addition, there are many user interface features that ease navigation and access to content. Some notable features include: browser-based administration and content management; category and section-based content organization; theme-based page and content layout; language-based configuration and phrase dictionaries. The GroupIT Engine requires a Unix server with Apache, PHPv4 and MySQL.

GroupIT provides plugin modules for threaded discussion forums, article forums, link directories, photo galleries (with automatic thumb-nailing) and binary documents (with full text search of Word documents). Access to content is controlled through read, write and editorial security levels that can be assigned on a per-category and per-section basis. Any section can be open or moderated and workgroups provide for secure compartmentalized team environments. A comprehensive administration web site allows direct access to the database back-end, and provides detailed reports concerning membership, security, activity and content. Bug tracking technology sends SMTP alerts immediately upon errors, transmitting full environment information to the web site administrator for convenient problem resolution.

GroupIT is pre-packaged with a professional theme that is suitable for extranets and online communities. Each theme can support multiple languages through the use of dictionary files. Adding new spoken languages is easy and doesn't require a knowledge of PHP programming.

The system installs using a browser-based quick start script. It requires a Unix-flavored server (Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris, ...), the MySQL database server, the Apache web server and PHPv4.01 or newer. The entire source code of the GroupIT Engine is available for download and use under the terms of the "Orchestrated Original Source License", which restricts distributing modified versions of GroupIT but allows anyone to make their own modifications and to distribute modifications as separate plug-ins or packages. Use of GroupIT in research and development environments, and for personal use, is made possible under OOSL at no charge. Competitively priced commercial and academic licenses are available that include unlimited email technical support.
