Conceived in 2003, and sporting thousands of downloads each month, DOCman has established itself as the premiere document management tool for Joomla. The new release is the culmination in years of experience in security. Keeping your documents safe has always been the primary concern — one we will never take lightly. Marc Alen, Adjunct Secretary of the Belgian Police Force agrees:
“We run 140 DOCman installations, one for each police zone’s public website, and even more installations on our intranets. Security is imperative — and for years, DOCman is delivering that for us.”
Native Joomla 1.5
We’ve been collecting user feedback for a while, and we’ve implemented the most demanded feature: being able to run DOCman in Joomla 1.5 without legacy mode.
The primary focus for this release has been stability, performance and security. Not only did we squeeze out another 10% in performance improvement, and 20% in memory usage; thanks to our extensive testing, you can rest assured this is the safest way to store and distribute your documents using Joomla. DOClink, the search plugin and the modules are now installed automatically along with DOCman. And as an added bonus, the new DOCman release was given a brand new front end theme.
You can buy the new DOCman 1.5 in the Joomlatools store. Charging a little for DOCman will help us invest in development and better support. Does this change anything? No, DOCman is still Free Software (as in Freedom) released under the GPL, just like Joomla. You still get the freedom to use DOCman as you wish. By buying DOCman, you support open source development.
We’d like to thank everybody who had a hand in making this possible. We’re looking forward to hear your feedback on this great new release, and with your support, DOCman can keep going on this amazing journey!
