Concourse Connect: AGPL Software for Community Websites

May 13, 2009

U.S. firm Concursive has released the first version of its ConcourseConnect Web platform. The open source product serves to build community websites with blogs, wikis, picture galleries and other interactive features.

Document archives, forums, tags and embedded ads supplement the offerings for online communities. For collaborative Web development, the software provides workgroups and and task lists. Concursive provides a few sample sites to demonstrate the capabilities of the software.

Version 1.0 is the first open release of ConcourseConnect. The open source package is under Affero GPLv3 (AGPL) licensing, an extended GPL that requires online services to provide source code on the server to network users under the same usage guidelines.

ConcourseConnect runs under Linux, Solaris, Windows and Mac OS X. Prerequisites are Java 5 JRE, PostgreSQL 8.2 or 8.3, and Tomcat 5.5. Running the email features also requires a mail server.

Sofware and documentation downloads are available at SourceForge. Next to the open source offering, Concursive also provides a cost-based Enterprise version with customer relationship management (CRM) features such as contact management and mail marketing, as well as enhanced administrative tools.
