"Digital Spinner, a web development and ecommerce solutions company, announced today the fourth development release of the GroupIT Engine (http://www.groupit.org), a group collaboration and knowledge management system to power the next generation of web sites, intranets and extranets. This release adds several notable features including an automated installation script, mime support for document forums, an improved security model, convenient front-end editorial features, threaded bulletin boards, improved session logging, a 100% performance improvement and a dramatic increase in scalability tolerance."

"Built for the Linux platform, the GroupIT Engine is fast becoming the most manageable, powerful and customizable knowledge management engine of its kind. GroupIT supports the organization of content through an unlimited number of hierarchical categories and sections, which can be created or modified through simple online forms. GroupIT supports threaded bulletin board messages, dynamically paginated articles, external web links, photo galleries with automatic thumb-nailing and binary documents (including spreadsheets, printable documents, presentations, audio, video). Access is controlled through read, write and editorial security levels assigned on a per-category and per-section basis. Any section can be open or moderated, and work group memberships 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 fast problem resolution."
