Openbravo community highlights 26/02/2007

Hello everybody,

There are some news that happened during the past days:
  • Miguel Armas from CanaryTek has updated our pre-installed and pre-configured application Virtual appliances to Openbravo version 2.22. They are available from SourceForge. There also step by step on-line instructions.
  • I have been working on Openbravo documentation style guide. It does attempt nor desire to cover all aspects of technical writing. The objective is to be concise and focused for Openbravo documentation writers. Please, feel free to give suggestions or comments in our documentation forum. I also have created a small Help page explaining how to edit documents our Wiki.
  • Some community members in the Spanish support forum are starting an effort to document Openbravo processes and workflows. There is an early draft is already published.
Also in case the you missed Earthweb has an interesting article Ten Leading Open Source Innovators about companies that are innovative. Not all of them are open source or innovating so much but still very interesting.
