If you follow our streams at Identi.ca, Twitter, Google+ or Facebook, you’ll have noticed that we pushed out the first installable Kolab 3.0 release yesterday. I lack the words that adequately describe how excited I am about this, to be honest.
This is not a full release yet, mind you, as we are just getting [...]
Almost half a year ago I had the pleasure to write the Kolab 3.0 primer, and ways of getting involved. Optimistically I scheduled the release for May/June 2012 in that posting. Attentive readers may have noticed that it is no longer June and Kolab 3.0 hasn’t been released yet.

To understand the Kolab Story it is unfortunately essential to first [...]
Those who know me will not be surprised that the somewhat prolonged silence following my last post was not only for purposes of an extended summer vacation.
