Kete 1.1 Released

Kete version 1.1, from the same folks who brought you Koha, has been released.
Kete is software that combines aspects of Digital Libraries/Repositories, Knowledge and Content Management Systems, and collaboration tools such as Wikis to make it easy to add and relate content on a Kete site.

It is also an open source web application written on top of the Ruby on Rails framework.
Some improvements include:
  • Privacy Control - ability to designate any item version within a basket as only viewable to its members
  • Content Licensing - users can choose from Kete instance's available Licenses for a piece of content they create. Creative Commons licenses are available to be loaded as license options with one command on the server.
  • OAI-PMH Repository - an Kete instance can optionally answer OAI-PMH harvester requests for its content.
  • Force use of SSL Encryption on Private Items and User Account Information (optional) Kete now can be configured to use HTTPS for all sensitive areas (login, registration, private items, certain administrator functionality).
