20 november 2006 - Infrae has just released version 1.2b of Document 
Library. This release adds LDAP authentication support, file system 
storage based on Tramline, simplified installation with Zope Buildout, 
and automated functional tests.

What is Document Library?

Document Library is a document management application intended for the 
tracking of large amounts of documents in an organization. Document 
Library is built with Zope3 and is open source. It is also open data: 
the contents of Document Library can be harvested using the standard 
OAI-PMH protocol and integrated with other applications. Integration 
with the Silva CMS using this technology is provided.

New Features

* Easy installation, using Zope Buildout.
* LDAP support, based on ldappas and ldapadapter.
* Filesystem storage support, based on Tramline and hurry.file.
* A more reliable conversion between file formats, provided by the
   OooConv conversion server, which now has an easy way to install too.
* Now uses zc.table (a new dependency) to draw document listing screens.
* Removed IP-based groups support. This was no longer a requirement of
   the customer and a bit of an implementation liability, so instead
   chose to remove a lot of code. If you do require IP based groups
   support in the Document Library, please contact Infrae and tell us
   about your requirements.
* LDAP authentication support.

Library product page on the Infrae site:
