Bitweaver, a web application framework and content management system with power, flexibility, and simplicity is now available. Bitweaver.org announces the second release of a cooperatively developed, open source web application that offers a complete suite of powerful web applications in a completely modular design.
With its second release, bitweaver completes the transition to a modular architecture for its open source web application framework.
The Freedom of Choicebitweaver's foundation is the modular "bitweaverPackages" system, which simply segments major feature sets into separate components. This empowers developers to quickly add their own proprietary functionality while maintaining a pristine mainline source. It also follows that developers can quickly remove undesirable code with a simple stroke of the delete key. This nets the benefits of open-source development and independent control.
Powerful new Blogging, Forums, Google Maps, Stars, and TagsMany innovative new features have been added to ReleaseTwo as well as many improvements. New features include a ForumsPackage, GmapPackage, StarsPackage, and TagsPackage.
Improvements include an overhauled BlogsPackage, feature-rich FisheyePackage image galleries package, and vast improvements to the underlying content-management engine, the LibertyPackage.
Web 2.0 Any Way You Like It.In keeping with bitweaver's open-minded architecture, ReleaseTwo has added support for several Ajax libraries. Each package page can elect to use it's own Ajax library as needed, be it MochiKit, Prototype, or any other popular library.
The CssSchema has been overhauled into a simple, unified design across all packages, allowing for styling generally or styling for specific items of content.
Clean and PowerfulStarting with a simple, powerful installer and continuing through to its streamlined architecture and design, bitweaver ReleaseTwo continues to build a loyal following of professionals and technologists. Special thanks go out to more than 50 developers and contributors who have helped made this release so a success. The bitweaver team has continually pounded the source at a tremendous pace of one source commit every 1.6 hours every day for 2.5 years, tallying up 13,000 commits since its first major release.
