There's nothing I like more in this business that a successful software or customer project launch.
So I'm specially happy this week, because we've had not one, but two important software releases, one of them being an new product launch, and we have another release coming up next week.
Nuxeo EP and DM 5.3.2
The first one was Nuxeo EP / DM 5.3.2, launched two days ago, a minor but rock solid release that closes more that 300 issues, and paves the way for a successful and feature-full 5.4 release planned for around October.
Still, it has some cool new features:
- a new configuration system (to make upgrade and administration easier);
- a new Tag Service implementation (complete integration with VCS backend);
- content automation integration;
- VCS improvements (better Oracle support and optimizations);
- new packagings and installers;
- more and improved translations.

Nuxeo Correspondence 1.0
The second one is Nuxeo Correspondence Management (also called "Nuxeo Courrier" in French).
This is one of the first examples of an open source vertical application (which targets both public administrations and regulated industries).
Are you interested? You can read the product description, download the product to try it on your own (and by "the product" and "trying", I mean the full, supported, product, not a crippled down version that stops working after 30 days or doesn't contain the "enterprise" features or support without which nobody would dare put the software in production in a mission-critical context).
You may also want to take a look at Cheryl's blog post "Keeping Communication Open between Citizen and Government" that stresses the importance of Correspondence Management in the public sector.
Also, if you're curious about the source code, or if you want to help with development, localization, etc.: it's available in our mercurial repository here.
Many thanks to everyone who worked on this release (Alexandre Russel, Mariana Cedica, Laurent Doguin, Anahide Tchertchian, Lise Kemen, Solen Guitter).
Nuxeo Correspondence Management is based on Nuxeo Case Management Framework, and if you don't know what it is, you may want to check this episode of Nuxeo TV:
Nuxeo DAM 1.1
We have a new Nuxeo DAM release scheduled for next week, based on the robust Nuxeo EP 5.3.2.
