"eGrail Inc., an Open Source content management company, released the kernel of its commercial software product to the Open Source development community today. The eGrail Source software will be available at www.egrail.org. This site will be managed under eGrail's current organizational structure, but will focus solely on providing technical services to Open Source developers."

"eGrail also announced its adoption of an innovative hybrid business model that represents a new and improved approach for the building, distribution and support of Internet software. eGrail is committed to developing efficient Open Source software that can be produced at a lower cost than most vendors currently in the market. eGrail is the first and only enterprise-capable content management software to run completely on Open Source infrastructure. eGrail's innovative commercial software application has been used by the company's customers for over two years."

"The release of our substantial and commercially-valuable intellectual property to the world is a bold step," said eGrail's Chief Executive Officer Ben Martindale. "But we believe that now is the right time to establish a new business model, that will enable us to reduce research and development costs, create a diversified revenue stream that produces returns for our investors, and improve the quality of products."
