KnowledgeTree Document Management Software to Feature Major User Interface

Enhancements to KnowledgeTree 3.3 Include an AJAX-Based Dashboard

Commercial open source document management system KnowledgeTree has released a technology preview of its upcoming 3.3 version demonstrating significant user interface enhancements that improve on the product's ease of use and simplicity.

A new AJAX-based dashboard, new user interface layout, improved forms handling, and a powerful new Workflow Wizard, are amongst the enhancements that ship with the KnowledgeTree 3.3 Technology Preview. Workflow development, traditionally a complex administrator task, is made more accessible to users not experienced in process design.

"KnowledgeTree's ease of use and simplicity are continually identified by our customers and the open source community as one of the product's greatest strengths. With KnowledgeTree's new AJAX-based dashboard, improved forms handling and other major usability enhancements we want to continue making document management as easy as possible," says Daniel Chalef of KnowledgeTree developers Jam Warehouse.

The new version also ships with improvements to the KnowledgeTree authentication scheme, allowing users to be created on first log in from authentication sources such as LDAP directory servers.

All of these enhancements are available in KnowledgeTree Open Source Edition, providing KnowledgeTree community developers with powerful new AJAX-based portlet, forms management and authentication options.

KnowledgeTree, built on the popular open source LAMP (Apache/MySQL/PHP) stack, has been downloaded more than 230,000 times to date. It is being used by Fortune 500 companies, community organizations, local and state governments and educational and scientific institutions around the world.

The application is available in three additions: KnowledgeTree Enterprise, KnowledgeTree SMB and KnowledgeTree Open Source. The commercial editions provide all the functionality of the Open Source edition and offer additional functionality including a WebDAV Integration Server and Client Tools for Windows, providing a familiar Windows Explorer and Microsoft Office interface into the document repository and direct-to-repository scanning capability.
