  • LinuxProgramming: CollabNet Announces New Version Of Sourcecast For Collaborative Development (Dec 11, 2001, 21:09)
    "The new version of SourceCast builds on the existing intuitive and powerful platform, adding both user and administrative upgrades including: improved classification and organization of projects, significant management enhancements for project roles and groups, usability updates for document sharing, and numerous ease-of-use and performance improvements."

  • AbiWord Weekly News #73 by Jesper Skov (Dec 11, 2001, 19:53)
    "0.9.6.1 tagged in the tree, but as an internal milestone only. There was a slew of new plugins announced (sorry, I couldn't be bothered to link to them), and the usual squashing of bugs."

  • AbiSource.com: AbiWord: Support Expectations (Dec 11, 2001, 19:01)
    "Unfortunately, it's not all roses we receive. With wider public interest and more users, there's bound to be people who are disappointed in AbiWord. We believe, however, that it's only because most newcomers do not realize what to expect - hopefully this text will set that right."

  • LinuxProgramming: PHP 4.1.0 Released (Dec 11, 2001, 16:23)
    "As some of you may notice, this version is quite historical, as it's the first time in history we actually incremented the middle digit! :) The two key reasons for this unprecedented change were the new input interface, and the broken binary compatibility of modules due to the versioning support."

  • Kernel Cousin GNUe #6 by Peter Sullivan (Dec 11, 2001, 15:11)
    Weekly summary of the GNU Enterprise Project, "Putting the 'Free' back in 'free enterprise'."

    "I found working in the BlueCat environment exceptionally easy and intuitive despite (some might say because of) its command-line orientation. The tools are well thought out with intuitive naming and behavior, and backed up with documentation of the highest quality."

  • LinuxPR: TWiki, a Flexible and Powerful Web-Based Collaboration Platform (Dec 11, 2001, 09:02)
    "TWiki is a collaboration platform that allows you to run a dynamic intranet site, a project development space, a document management system, a knowledge base, an issue tracking system and many other groupware application."

  • I, Cringely: He's Not in It for the Profit (Dec 11, 2001, 04:52)
    Robert Cringely provides another look at the Microsoft/DoJ Settlement: "Specifically, the language says that it [MS] need not describe nor license API, Documentation, or Communications Protocols affecting authentication and authorization to companies that don't meet Microsoft's criteria as a business: '...(c) meets reasonable, objective standards established by Microsoft for certifying the authenticity and viability of its business...' So much for SAMBA and other Open Source projects that use Microsoft calls. The settlement gives Microsoft the right to effectively kill these products."
