Alfresco 3.2 adds CMIS Support

July 8, 2009:Open source ECM software company Alfresco has made available for download Community Edition 3.2, promising new capabilities for mobile content management,streamlining email management and supporting open specifications and standards including CMIS and IMAP.

A Smartphone client provides support for mobile devices (including Apple’s iPhone), providing the ability to search, view and edit content, activities and tasks from anywhere.

Simple ‘drag and drop’ allows users to share key messages with colleagues and team members without contributing to the ever-growing volume of forwarded email. Alfresco’s transparent IMAP standard protocol support provides full access to repository services without a client install and can be accessed from mobile devices.

The virtualised repository support enables users to manage and archive emails within the corporate content repository. By using automation to extract key information from email metadata, attachments andassociations, Alfresco Community 3.2 makes it easy to classify emails and attachments in accordance with an organisation’s Records Management processes.

Alfresco Community 3.2 offers full support (SOAP Web Services, REST and Query) for version 0.61 of the Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) specification, allowing CMIS compliant clients and repositories to interoperate and share content across information silos.

Alfresco Community 3.2 includes significant performance increases to improve deployment of web site content to external web sites through highly-parallel website deployment and publishing.

Enhanced Records Management functionality due to be added in September will include metadata management, YUI-based forms, life cycle management, CMIS-based query access, email capture, import/export facility and auditing.
