New in version 3.00 Stable 1 (November 24th, 2008)

  • After more then one and a half year of development time and testing it's finally there! We are proud to present Group-Office 3.0, Group-Office needed to be modernised. New web techniques have been developed and are ready to use in a professional platform such as Group-Office. We completely rewrote the interface of Group-Office. It feels much more like a desktop application now with drag and drop features, flexible information panels and much more!
  • Besides the eye candy and usability enhancements a lot has been improved under the hood too. The database adapter has been rewritten to use the improved MySQLi extension for better security. Data sent to the database is checked for attacks at the lowest level so it's impossible for developers to write insecure database queries when they use the Group-Office framework. A lot more has been done to improve security like insecure image blocking in the e-mail module. It's impossible to name every change here in this message, you should check out the new version for yourself!
