Welcome to Oscailt 3: A new generation of Indymedia Software
national | indymedia ireland | feature Sunday January 29, 2006 03:42 by Indymedia Ireland Development Team - Indymedia Ireland
Indymedia Ireland Launches Oscailt 3.0 Platform As well as Indymedia Ireland's constant efforts to produce and distribute information in an open and democratic manner, we put a similar effort into creating and disseminating free software to allow others to do the same. Today, after more than 18 months of development, we finally launch version 3.0 of our Oscailt content management system.
Oscailt 3.0 has literally hundreds of new features which will progressively appear on the Irish site over the next few months. Some of the most important ones for users are the following:
Some BackgroundOscailt has thusfar been almost entirely produced by the technical group of indymedia Ireland. It's history is very much bound up with the history of indymedia Ireland, although it is now starting to grow both within the IMC Network and elsewhere.
Oscailt was first launched on indymedia Ireland on June 18th 2003. Since then it has gone through a second generation and slowly spread around the world. Today it powers indymedia sites in far-off places like Oklahoma, Charlottesville, Virginia and some closer to home like Bristol Indymedia. Oscailt has also been translated into several foreign languages, for example, Oscailt powers Jakarta Indymedia and Denmark Indymedia.
For us, the fact that we produce our own software and distribute it for free is a very important part of Indymedia - the idea of Open Publishing owes much to the free software movement. With the development of Oscailt 3.0, the software has started to spread even further into non-indymedia sites. Although version 3.0 has not yet been fully publically released, there are already a list of sites who are using one of the beta releases to power their site. For example: Anarkismo, International Anarchist News Site and Sonidos Libertarios. Oscailt 3.0 beta versions also power the newest member of the indymedia family: Virginia Beach Indymedia as well as prospective ones like East Africa IMC
More InformationOscailt is Licensed under the GPL. It can be downloaded from the Oscailt Sourceforge Page. The documentation for Oscailt 3 is available on the indymedia documentation wiki. The current release is numbered 3.0-rc1 - meaning that it is a 'release candidate' - we expect the full public release to take place within a few weeks.
We are always looking for more people to help out with Oscailt development and indymedia Ireland technical work - no matter what technical skills they have. To get involved, just sign up to the Oscailt Public Mailing list or the Indymedia Ireland Technical Mailing List. We are also always looking for volunteers to help out with all other aspects of the site - don't be shy Get Involved!
Please add any comments or questions that you might have about the new site or the new software
