Hi, is now offline, and all new work
on Alfresco will now be done on the Share interface at

I am in the process of manually uploading all the previous content
there. This is likely to be over this coming weekend. About 30% is
done already. I have a backup on my local system in addition to one on
the new server and a backup of the old server partition. I'll be
restoring everything fairly much as it was on the old server, but
taking account of a workflow that I have devised with Jeff Potts of
the Alfresco project (more about that soon).

As soon as the data is restored, I'll be updating the contributor
documentation so that people can get good guidance in using the
Alfresco Share interface. It's much faster and more user-friendly than
the old Explorer interface - especially since the new server is a
100%-dedicated machine with 8Gb of memory.

Good news is that the past problem of inability to browse folders with
accented characters in the folder name has now been solved, so that
localization teams will be able to make effective use of the new

In addition, I can install language packs so that many localization
teams will be able to use the platform in their preferred language.

I have not yet migrated user accounts. Anyone who would like access
before I do can post here to the list, and I will quickly create you an
account and send you new credentials.

I'll write back with more news in a few days when I've done more work,
but I'll that won't be before the weekend. Meanwhile, I'll be watching
the list to deal with any account creation requests and any questions.

Anyone who wants documents posted on the new server is welcome to send
them to me for the next few days, and I will be sure to post your
content with the other stuff. It's probably easier to do it that way
for the next few days while I migrate all our content.

Thanks for your patience with this, and more news/info soon,

David Nelson

Hi guys, is up now, but is exposing the
old site. is up and exposing the new
site. is up and you can browse the
content currently transferred to the new site.

Best not do any work on docs on the Afresco sites for a day or so, so
that I can get through with transferring the content.

Sorry about the inconvenience, I'll finish as soon as possible. We
should be good before Wednesday. There will be good and interesting
news to report.

More very soon,

David Nelson
