PRESS RELEASE: Version 2.0 of Project Management Software Collabtive Released

Version 2.0 of Project Management Software Collabtive Released
Improves Security, Design and Functionality

Saarbruecken, Germany
August 13, 2014

The new version 2.0 of Collabtive is a major step forward for the popular web-based project management tool. With over 50 changes, this is one of the biggest releases since the initial launch in 2007. All known bugs have been fixed according to the developers. They also overhauled the user interface and added more productivity features. The strongest focus was on security, with many improvements in this crucial area.

For secure usage of Collabtive 2.0 in critical contexts, potential vulnerabilities have been addressed. The SSL detection has been improved. A content security policy HTTP header instructs the user’s browser to block various unsafe behaviours. Input is filtered by HTMLPurifier, a well-proven library that protects against cross-site scripting attacks, while preserving rich formatting options. Files uploaded to Collabtive are no longer exposed with public links — instead, all file requests are routed through Collabtive to restrict access to authorized users. Your files will now be strongly encrypted using the Advanced Encryption Standard ensuring a high level of safety for important documents. When updating from an older Collabtive installation, all pre-existing files have to be reprocessed to apply the encryption. Therefore it is strongly recommended that you make a backup before applying the update.

hotscripts.com: Collabtive is among the TOP 10 Open Source Web App of all Time

As one of the main developers, I am pleased that our continued evolution of Collabtive is recognized by the internet’s largest directory of web development and programming-related resources.
It’s a good feeling when your own software is mentioned in the same breath with industry giants such as WordPress, Drupal and Joomla.

Excerpt from the article on hotscripts.com:

Not all web applications are created equal. Many web applications are vaporware—hype is created, but the actual application is never released, or it is released, but then development stops. There are, however, several web applications that have enjoyed great development and evolution over time. This article takes a look at the 10 Most Popular Open Source web applications that have, over the past few years, matured and gained even wider adoption.

hotscripts.com: Collabtive in TOP 10 der Open-Source-Webanwendungen

Hochverdiente Auszeichnung für Collabtive!

Als eine der Hauptentwicklerinnen freue ich mich, dass unsere langer Atem bei der Weiterentwicklung der Software an prominenter Stelle Anerkennung findet.
Es ist ein gutes Gefühl, wenn die eigene Software in einem Atemzug mit Branchengrößen wie Wordpress, Drupal und Joomla genannt wird.

Übersetzter Auszug aus dem Artikel

Nicht alle Webanwendungen sind gleich. Viele erweisen sich als sogenannte Vaporware, bei der zuerst ein Hype erzeugt wird, die tatsächliche Anwendung dann aber nie veröffentlicht oder zwar freigegeben wird - aber dann stoppt die Entwicklung.

Neues Release: Collabtive 1.2

Jetzt geht’s weiter: Collabtive wird 1.2!

Die neue Version enthält über 20 Verbesserungen.
Die meisten davon beheben Fehler, bei anderen handelt es sich um neue Funktionen.

Da Collabtive 1.2 zusätzlich auch Sicherheitsverbesserungen enthält, empfehlen wir allen Verwendern älterer Versionen ein Upgrade.

Meilensteine verbessert
Für jeden Meilenstein kann man jetzt ein Startdatum auswählen. So kann man Meilensteine erzeugen, an denen erst zu einem bestimmten Datum in der Zukunft gearbeitet werden soll.
Beim Anlegen eines Meilensteins wird nun automatisch eine mit diesem verbundene Aufgabenliste erstellt.
Außerdem werden die Meilensteine nun nach Fälligkeitsdatum in 3 Gruppen eingeteilt.
