“Team collaboration redesigned” is how we introduced our interview with Birthe Lindenthal, Chairperson of the OpenProject Foundation’s Board of Directors.
OpenProject is released under the GNU General Public License Version 3 and runs on Ruby on Rails. I happen to agree with their tagline that this tool has “everything you need for collaboration” to support the entire project life cycle. There are two big features that deserve to be highlighted: OpenProject supports Accessibility and a Scrum plugin supporting Agile methods and Scrum teams.
OpenProject is currently working on a major upgrade ready for release during 2014 Q1. Version 3.0 will support Ruby 2.0 and Rails 3.2. See their full roadmap here.
OpenProject ranks in my personal top 3 favorite open source project management tools because of their user interface, documentation, and rich feature set.
