 CfBT Teacher Education in Malaysia
Jan 22, 2006 - 05:17 PM :: shouball :: 30658 Reads
General NewsCfBT is a not for profit educational organization. Last year we were given the go ahead to begin a complex pilot project (PIERS) to intensively train English, Maths and Science teachers in a cluster of Malaysian government schools in the state of Negeri Sembilan.

During the planning stage we sampled a number of project management tools which would enable us to consolidate planning and keep our offices in the UK, Brunei and Malaysia frequently informed of updates. I reviewed a number of possibilities, but stopped when I discovered DotProject on the server which hosts our teacher website http://www.the-tutor.com

Dot Project has provided us with trouble free and systematic communication, easy access for all the project workers and increased our efficiency – no more time wasting phone calls asking for information about contacts….

Thank you DotProject developers for your help!

If you have specific programming updates or details about any of these items you might like to contact the owner.


This is not a difficult distinction - if you are offering updates or translations - then use these links. If you are asking why something does not work for you - then use the support forums.


If people continue to abuse this very simple request then we are going to be forced to remove these contact points. Unfortunate, but some people seem to think that requests of this nature are obviously not intended for them.

General NewsThe CVS is now in the process of having the new permissions system grafted in. As such it is likely to be COMPLETELY BROKEN for a period of time. Whilst you are welcome to have a look, it is no point in posting problems - we know it is broken and are working on it to get it in shape for a release. Pointing this out to us just takes us away from the main game, which is providing you with the best release of dotProject possible. Please be patient. We will update the news when the release is out of this critical phase and into calmer waters.

 2.0 CVS Freeze on 20th September
Sep 15, 2004 - 08:14 PM :: Karen :: 7256 Reads
General NewsThe time has come to get some organisation into proceedings so that we can look towards 2.0.

We'd like to call a CVS commit freeze as at midnight UTC on the 20th September for at least 5 days - but could be longer depending upon the number of fixes required. This freeze is particularly required because the permissions changes are big and we need to have a stable base when we commence the amalgamation of that and some of the other changes we've got in the wings.

Developers please check the Developer forum or your sourceforge email list for details on how to continue submitting updates during this time.

If anybody wants details on what's included in 2.0 please refer to the Developers Site from the Modules Menu.

Post the freeze and after we've had time to assess the amount of bug fixes etc required we'll be closer to announcing some dates.

Apologies everyone - the freeze is still in place because the amalgamation is still underway and taking longer than we originally estimated. Hopefully the BIG list of new features will be worth the wait.

 PHP5 is not supported
Jul 20, 2004 - 07:57 PM :: Karen :: 8126 Reads
General NewsPHP5 has just been released.

dotProject is not compatible with PHP5.

There is no current schedule to implement PHP5 and dotProject and no immediate plans to incorporate this into our development schedule.

Changing dotProject to support PHP5 is insufficient. Backwards compatibility is already an issue and is, to our minds, the major requirement. There are far too many hosting sites and client sites running older versions of PHP for us to contemplate breaking such support.

Please do not ask us when we will be supporting PHP5 as we do not have a date or a plan in mind.

General NewsA great deal of work has been done to dotproject since version 0.2.2 both in the underlying code-base and in additional functionality and bug-fixes. We now feel it is at a stage where it can be 'birthed' into Version 1.0 status.

 Team: dotProject
Mar 12, 2003 - 12:00 AM :: Admin :: 308734 Reads
General NewsOriginally commenced in 2000 by dotmarketing.org, dotProject was developed as a state of the art Project Management tool from the start.

The original theme (still available in the first release of 2005) flagged dotProject as an open source alternative to Microsoft products and other expensive, commercial applications.

Right from the start, dotProject had, as it's core aims a number of simple requirements:

* Clean, simple and consistent user interface;

* Project Management functionality - not another CMS, groupware environment or all things to all people collaboration tool, but a project management environment;

* Open source / open access / free usage.

And right up until the current day, these aims remain the core aim of the current administration team.

Sure, we still have some functionality that is required, but over the years, dotProject has undergone some formidable updates, additions and code changes and we fully intend to keep that activity up, with the ongoing support of our user community.
