phpcollab3 : arrangement and thanks!

I’m really happy to see a lot of interest in the phpCollab3 project.
To all the people who have written to phpcolla [at] ideato.it asking how he/she could help: thank you very much! We will write you soon to arrange the next steps.

We are now in the middle of an iteration, at its end phpCollab3 should be ready to host itself!
So, we will work directly on phpCollab3 to develop phpCollab3!

Thanks again.

P.S.: Just in case some web designer is reading this, would you like to help us?


Hi everyone!

I’m Filippo. As Fullo wrote in the previous post, phpCollab is “moving ahead”. At the moment I’m the one who is working permanently at this project in collaboration with (and in the office of) Ideato s.r.l..

The new phpCollab will be developed with Symfony, Doctrine and following the agile methodologies such as TDD , DDD and XP. I’m speaking about a “new” application because it will inherit all the characteristics of the “old” Collab, re-written and updated, and it will have new featueres for making your project managment process as clear as possible. All the news about the project will be published here and as soon as we are at the “right” point we will tell you where to find a demo.

For those who wants to take a look at it, the source code is on github (phpCollab3). There is also a wiki that will be filled with all the information you will need, and hopefully with your comments and suggestions!
At this moment the project is under development and it is not reccomended to use it in “production”.

The phpCollab3 project is also possible thanks to “Consorsio Spinner”, “Comunit√† Europea”, “Ministero del Lavoro” and “Regione Emilia-Romagna”. As a matter of fact the “phpCollab3 project” has been presented to (and won) the Spinner2013 competition for projects about innovation.

Version 2.5

Is coming very soon!

We are finishing up the remaining bugs, which are for PostgreSQL. Once those are completed, we will be releasing version 2.5.

Also, with the 2.5 release we will offer a XAMPP Windows package. This will allow people to get up and running practically immediately in a windows environment. More details to come.

No, we are not dead..

But we are very busy with our “normal” jobs. Actually the only two quite-active developers are Mindblender and me. So the project goes on veeeeery slowly.

Btw If you want to help us (and yourself) please take a look on the bugs on the SourceForge bugs page and try to fix them ;).

If you want to become an active developer, the way is the same. After you’ll fix at least two major bugs and help a little on the forum I’ll give you a CVS account…

And if you sometimes check on the CVS there are fix and patch for phpCollab 2.5 [that actually is a lot more stable than 2.4]…

phpCollab was included in 4PSA Integrator
