<nettime-ann> [Press] PRESS RELEASE: Aiki Framework 0.6 Revealed as Open Clip Art Library Ascends to Version 2.7

For immediate release:

November 16, 2010 UTC -

Aiki Framework (http://aikiframework.org), a web-based content
management system, is built to strengthen the Open Source Community
and projects that emerge from it.  Each development cycle aims to
offer users a more inclusive and usable experience.  Aiki Framework
Founder, Bassel Safadi is joined by fellow members of Fabricatorz
(http://fabricatorz.com) to deliver the software's latest offering,
Aiki Framework 0.6.  With Aiki Framework 0.6, building and maintaining
a scalable, dynamic website has never been easier!

Fabricatorz Founder Jon Phillips stated, "With the latest Aiki
Framework Release, the Fabricatorz team continues to build upon Aiki's
scalability with features to attract more developers to the platform.
As a company, Fabricatorz LLC is committed to building successful
websites and communities for clients internationally, as we have done
from San Francisco to China to Singapore."

Along with the usual collection of bug fixes, a few key additions fill
out Aiki's capabilities and warrant highlights.  Language support
(http://www.aikiframework.org/wiki/Language_Support) is now fully
integrated into Aiki Framework's structure.  Sites built on top of the
framework can now be effectively localized anywhere in the world.  A
second key expansion comes in the form of Revision Control
(http://www.aikiframework.org/wiki/Revision_Control).  Web Developers
who choose Aiki Framework as their primary tool are now able to save a
history of changes that are made to the sites they create.  Revision
control is a powerful tool that can help developers track the
evolution of a site or even take them back to a previous stage of

Lead Aiki developer Bassel Safadi said, "Revision Control was a hotly
requested feature that I'm very excited to have been able to bring to
Aiki Framework.  Developers now have even greater control over the
progress of their sites. In the future, we will expose this feature
more along with other ways of notifying Aiki developers about updates
to Aiki Installations."

Never a site to remain stagnant, The Open Clip Art Library
(http://openclipart.org), Aiki Framework's primary showcase, is also
releasing it's latest Version.  Open Clip Art Library 2.7 continues
it's massive growth as 1,500 new registered users helped utilize and
contribute over 700 unique and remixed graphics in October!  A
cross-section of artist's from the Community have also been kind
enough to contribute towards OCAL's latest themed package:
Thanksgiving 2010
(http://www.openclipart.org/packages-thanksgiving2010).  The files can
be downloaded separately or as a single archived package.  Next
month's holiday2010 theme
(http://www.openclipart.org/packages-holidays2010) is currently open
for contributions, and it's already promising to be filled with a wide
range of Seasonal work!  Users are encouraged to assist in future Open
Clip Art Library Releases by contributing graphics (themed or
otherwise), helping in development (join the #openclipart irc
channel), and/or filing bugs and requests
(https://launchpad.net/openclipart).  Users can also contribute by
filling out a freshly created Research Survey
(http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/OpenClipArt_survey), located just under
OCAL's primary navigation menu.

These projects would be fruitless without the Open Source Communities
that utilize and improve them.  As such, Aiki Framework Developers are
calling for an increase in numbers and support!  Learn how you can get
involved in Aiki Framework by joining the irc channel

Aiki Framework is an AGPL licensed LAMP-based new web framework that
stores all the controllers and output templates in a database. It also
allows for various levels of access to an instance so that

countless free software projects is removed, so development continues

open source web project.
