About ClioPatria versions
ClioPatria was started as part of MultimediaN Eculture Project. This version was an integral part of the MultimediaN E-Culture Demonstrator that won first prize as semantic web application at ISWC 2006. We call that version one.
Later, the application specific code was abstracted a bit, allowing to skin the application and put other data into it. This version still uses the `kitchen-sink model', which makes it almost inacessible for anyone but its developers. We call that version two.
The current version is fairly lean, which should make it more versatile and accessible. It can be extended using packages. The package system is called CPACK (ClioPatria Package). This version will be version three. It is not really there, but we call the current version 2.9 to prepare the transition. Here are the main plans before we will call it 3.0:
- Some parts of ClioPatria will move into packages.
- Some parts of the kitchen-sink ClioPatria will be made available as packages too.
- The package manager and configuration manager needs more polishing.
From now on, we will try to keep ClioPatria stable, lean and backward compatible.
