Document Repository System
   

Document Repository System



The current stable version of DRS is 0.9.0
The current development version of DRS is 0.10.2dev (You may want to use a nightly package)
The Document Repository System is a system of managing documents within an organization. It works with a Frontpage Web (which, at this time, is required for the document repository to work, though I am planning on making Frontpage optional sometime), so that Windows clients can seemlessly save their work to the repository directly from Office (though with the check-in/check-out system, almost any browser/operating system can use DRS). The program itself, though, is geared to run on a Linux server with Frontpage Extensions installed on Apache. It is programmed in PHP, and has many features other than just a document repository, including: forums, announcements, tasks, calendars, event management, user administration, etc...

I no longer have time to continue the development of DRS. If you are interested in taking over, please contact me (look on the menu for the link) You will need to have good experience in PHP, MySQL, and know how Frontpage works. Thanks

CVS might be unstableSeptember 16, 2002 5:25 PM
Category: CVS
By: Andrew

Please read this if you are planning on downloading a nightly release or DRS from CVS. I am about to commit a patch that will make DRS pretty much independent from Frontpage. It is not yet usable, because I have not yet created the administration tools yet. It might also be unstable, because the commit is somewhere near 1000-1500 lines. If you want to download it to test, thats fine; however, it is not considered stable anymore. There are a few things I need to work out before I can say it is completely free of Frontpage extensions, and I also have to create some sort of administration tools for this. Thanks for your support.

Demo Problem/More ProgressSeptember 16, 2002 4:09 PM
Category: Site/Other
By: Andrew

Oops. With a CVS commit last night, I screwed up the demo. It has been fixed now, but it required me to reset the database. This isn't disasterous, because it is a demo, but there may be some more problems with it. Please contact me if you find trouble with it. Also, I am actively working on making Frontpage extensions optional! Woohoo!

Development ReleasesSeptember 15, 2002 2:53 PM
Category: Development Releases
By: Andrew

I probably should release 0.10.3dev, but I really hate releasing files, especially development releases. So, I will only release development releases if I really see a need to. If you want the current features in the development release, please either download it via CVS or Nightly Packages. I consider the CVS pretty stable, and I'm pretty good at not breaking the program with CVS commits (the demo keeps in sync with CVS).

Invitation SystemSeptember 1, 2002 12:39 PM
Category: Releases
By: Andrew

I have added an invitation system to DRS. You can probably expect a 0.10.3dev release soon--it will fix the calendar bugs fixed by 0.9.0 and other features.

0.9.0 ReleasedAugust 31, 2002 7:58 PM
Category: Releases
By: Andrew

I released 0.9.0 today in response to a bug found by Jeffrey Chimene. While browsing the code, I found two more minor linking problems in the calendar. All these have been fixed with this release. ChangeLog . Downloads. Please submit bugs if you find them. Thanks

0.10.2dev ReleasedAugust 24, 2002 4:15 PM
Category: Development Releases
By: Andrew

Unrelated to the release of 0.9.0RC6, DRS 0.10.2dev was released. This fixes many bugs and adds new features--Change Log here. The demo is running the CVS version of DRS, which is, at the moment, identical to 0.10.2dev. Please try it out, and submit bugs.

0.9.0RC6 ReleasedAugust 24, 2002 3:45 PM
Category: Releases
By: Andrew

0.9.0RC6 has been released. This fixes a bug in the way emails were sent to people who were assigned tasks. Thanks to J E Chimene for finding this bug.

0.9.0RC5 ReleasedAugust 17, 2002 5:36 PM
Category: Releases
By: Andrew

0.9.0RC5 has been released. This fixes a bug in the printer friendly system where it wouldn't work if DRS wasn't running on port 80. Also, the background 'pixel' wouldn't show up if DRS wasn't running in the root directory of the document root of the server. These are minor bugs, and don't affect many people. Please submit bugs and visit the ChangeLog for more details.

New Documentation WriterAugust 15, 2002 8:12 PM
Category: Staff
By: Andrew

I am pleased to announce that I have finally found a documentation writer (and a good one, too :-) Jeffrey Chimene will be in charge of writing documentation for DRS. I welcome him. In other news, DRS now includes a web-based configuration tool (only in CVS, right now). This is a huge step in making DRS easier to install and configure.

By: Andrew

0.9.0RC4 and 0.10.1dev have been released today. Both fix a bug in the login form pointing to the incorrect place. 0.10.1dev also has some new features. See the ChangeLog and submit bugs.

0.9.0RC3 ReleasedAugust 7, 2002 7:28 PM
Category: Releases
By: Andrew

I have released 0.9.0RC3, which fixes yet another bug in the way Frontpage dates are handled. Hopefully this is the last bug for a while. 0.9.0RC3 is now considered a stable release, because I don't have the time to maintain 3 branches (0.8.0, 0.9.0, and the MAIN branch). I don't think it has bugs, but you can test that using the demo, which is kept up to date.

New ReleasesAugust 7, 2002 8:52 AM
Category: Releases
By: Andrew

I have released 3 new versions of DRS, the 0.8.1 and 0.9.0RC2 releases fix a bug in the way frontpage time stamps are handled. The development release, 0.10.0dev, fixes this bug and adds many new features (the check-out/ check-in system, viewing files in browser, etc.) I have added zip files for Windows--all the files have been converted using 'unix2dos' so you can actually read the files. Have a good day. The demo now uses the CVS version of DRS, so it is already up-to-date with these fixes.

Zip Files PostedAugust 6, 2002 8:14 PM
Category: Releases
By: Andrew

I have added .zip files for all current releases. Now Windows users (I remind you that Windows support is very beta) can download DRS in a 'native' (if you will) format.

New Check-in/Check-out supportAugust 6, 2002 4:54 PM
Category: Features
By: Andrew

I have committed to the CVS code that allows users to check-in and check-out files. Therefore, any client can download files and then reupload them. This is only in the CVS version, but it will soon make a development release. This is a major step, so I just thought I'd let you know.

Demo upgradeAugust 5, 2002 9:39 AM
Category: Site/Other
By: Andrew

The demo is now running DRS 0.9.0RC1. Now, you can also add files to the repository because I've given the demo user author access. You can now edit, add, and delete documents from the repository. You still need Windows to be able to edit/view files. I'm working on a check-in/check-out system so that every platform can view/edit files. For now, that's all. If you find bugs, please please please submit them.

Many releasesAugst 5, 2002 8:36 AM
Category: Releases
By: Andrew

Alright, here we go. I have released a bunch of new files today and I'll attempt to explain them. 0.8.6dev is the new development release, but 0.9.0RC1 is identical to it (I have branched off to a 0.9.0 branch). If you could please test this release for bugs (the demo will be running it soon), I would be most appreciative. Also, 0.8.0 was released. It is considered 'stable', but lacks many features. I recommend using 0.9.0RC1, but if you're super scared, use 0.8.0. 0.9.0RC1 has a different database structure than 0.8.5dev and 0.8.0(RC#) . If you are upgrading, you must delete the db and reinitialize it. Also, the config.php file is different. You cannot use old config.php files for this 0.9.0RC1 release. Thanks. Please submit bugs!

I'm backAugust 4, 2002 9:37 PM
Category: Other
By: Andrew

I'm back from my trip, and while on it, I was able to code a bit. DRS now includes integration with groups (though there is a known bug already). You can now submit whole groups to review files (I do believe I have mastered JavaScript trying to get the select box on the 'Submit for Review' page working :-). The sorting functions were the worst (notice that the select boxes sort themselves after you select/deselect a group or user. Anyway, see the ChangeLog for all the gory details. I will probably release 0.8.6dev tomorrow, when I fix the group bug.

Demo UpgradeJuly 26, 2002 3:47 PM
Category: Site/Other
By: Andrew

The demo is now running the latest development release (0.8.5-dev-pl1). If you find a bug in it, please submit it.

0.8.5dev-pl1 ReleasedJuly 26, 2002 11:13 AM
Category: Development Releases
By: Andrew

I have released a small bugfix to 0.8.5dev. Basically, when adding an FP user, DRS would still add a user to a subweb, even if the 'No Access' option was selected. The user would then have the role of an anonymous user. This has been fixed with the 0.8.5dev-pl1 release.

0.8.5dev ReleasedJuly 26, 2002 10:21 AM
Category: Development Releases
By: Andrew

I released DRS 0.8.5dev today. This is a development release, but adds many nice features. The config.php file is less cramped looking, so it is easier to read. HTML can be allowed/disallowed in announcements, events, tasks, and forum posts; you can also specify what tags to allow. You can now let DRS try to determine your timezone. And the best feature now is that you can add a complementary Frontpage user when adding a DRS user; this means you don't have to add DRS users, then go the the Frontpage admin page and add FP users-- you can do it all from the same page! Wahoo! I will be going away for a week, so development will stop until then. Hope you find it useful. As always, please submit bugs and tell me if you get DRS working. Thanks!

Demo UpgradeJuly 24, 2002 1:46 PM
Category: Site/Other
By: Andrew

I am updating the demo to 0.8.4dev, so please be patient; it may go down for a few minutes

Update by Andrew: I got a bit side-tracked, but the update is now complete. Since it is running the latest development version, if you find a bug, please submit it

DRS 0.8.4dev ReleasedJuly 24, 2002 1:42 PM
Category: Development Releases
By: Andrew

0.8.4dev was released today. It fixes the bug that 0.8.0RC4 was released for, and adds support for using wvSummary. Basically, now much more information can be displayed about the file (if it is an Office file). Also, when uploading a file (or changing a files properties), the title can be extracted from the file, rather than having to retype it; this adds more consistancy. This is a development release, and things haven't been tested enough, but if you're dying to have the features, I don't think there are too many bugs :-)

DRS 0.8.0RC4 ReleasedJuly 24, 2002 10:02 AM
Category: Releases
By: Andrew

0.8.0RC4 was released today. It fixes a bug where DRS wouldn't work if you had already created the MySQL database, but not the tables. This is a pretty serious bug, but unless you have experienced the problem, you don't need to upgrade.

I'm BackJuly 22, 2002 8:32 AM

I am back from my trip so development on DRS will begin again. This is busy time, and I will be going away again next week, but I'll try to get as much done as possible. Thanks

0.8.0RC3 and 0.8.3dev ReleasedJuly 13, 2002 7:13 AM
Category: Releases/Development Releases
By: Andrew

The third release candidate for DRS 0.8.0 has been released. Also, a development release, 0.8.3dev has been released. The RC3 fixes a bug where dates could become inconsistent and a problem with date spans spanning too long on the calendar. I will be going away for a week tomorrow, so development (for the most part, the new developers may do some work) will stop. Thanks for I'll you help/cooperation; if you get DRS running, I'd love to hear about it.

Demo upJuly 12, 2002 12:34 PM
Category: Site/Other
By: Andrew

I have setup of demo of DRS running on my server. If you want to check it out, go here. Please read the warning, and be a good person; I have no time to be a moderator of stupid crap. Try things out, and even report bugs :-), but don't be dumb about it--you know what I mean. Thanks.

0.8.0RC2 (Stable Release) ReleasedJuly 11, 2002 9:35 PM
Category: Releases
By: Andrew

0.8.0RC2 has been released. It fixes a minor bug in the pop-up javascript calendar system, where, on some dates, it could be off a month. No other changes have been added (no other development features, etc..) so it is still considered stable, but if you find a bug, please submit it

0.8.2dev (Development Release) ReleasedJuly 11, 2002 7:46 PM
Category: Development Releases
By: Andrew

A development release of DRS has been released, 0.8.2dev. This features some bugfixes and new features (see the ChangeLog), but it is not considered stable. I found a bug today that has not been fixed in any releases, but it will be soon. Basically, it amounts to the different ways DRS makes the use of mktime(). Some calls include the $isDst property, others don't, so inconsistancies in time could occur; it should be fixed tomorrow, and 0.8.0RC2 and 0.8.3dev will be released.

Another New DeveloperJuly 11, 2002 4:19 PM
Category: Staff
By: Andrew

We have another new developer who will be joining the project development, Ed Griffith (griffed1864). We now have 3 developers, which is the most I'll take on right now. The only thing I need now is a documentation writer. If you are interested see the job specification. Thanks

New DeveloperJuly 11, 2002 9:40 AM
Category: Staff
By: Andrew

A new developer will be joining the team, David Haley (khoralin). I'm excited to have someone else working with team, and it's a great opportunity to push the development of DRS at a faster pace. I will be gone all next week, so the next release will probably not be until 2-3 weeks, but hopefully it will be feature-rich :-)

0.8.1dev (Development Release) releasedJuly 10, 2002 9:04 PM
Category: Development Releases
By: Andrew

0.8.1dev, which is a development release, not yet considered stable has been released. It features input validation on most pages (this system still needs to be checked for bugs) and an added configuration option that, when set, non-admins cannot edit/delete announcements, events, or tasks that they didn't originally create.

0.8.0RC1 ReleasedJuly 9, 2002 12:10 PM
Category: Releases
By: Andrew

0.8.0RC1 has been released. Even though it is a release candidate, it is considered stable. It has many changes/bug-fixes (see the ChangeLog and an upgrade is recommended. If you do find a bug, please submit it. Thanks. The database that 0.8.0RC1 runs on is not comatible with previous databases. This is because of organization/phone tracking, all-day/no end date events, and the introduction of a GROUPS column that will be used in later versions
