ISVN 0.2.0 Released

Sun, 10 Aug 2003 00:58:02 -0000

It's been nearly two weeks since the last release, but the long time has been worth it.

0.2.0 offers vast improvments throughout the board. There a new features, bug fixes and loads of intermal workings changed so that ISVN is faster and more secure than ever before.

One of the main features of this release is the new installer. This installer will set up the configuration files for when you first install, thus taking out a lot of the hassle.

We are still looking for developers. The next release will be our most ambitious yet - more details to come.

The International Suspect Vigilance Network project has experience rapid development since it's release just a few days ago.

It is with pride that we present the latest release - 0.1.4. This holds countless new features and a couple of bug fixes over the previous version - and has even been tested to work well on PHP5.

This will be the final release under the 0.1.x branch. The next release will be 0.2.0. To stay current with the releases (especially those looking to contribute) then you should go with whatever is in the CVS. Everything is tested before it is commited so there shouldn't be too many problems.

ISVN 0.1.0 Released

Sun, 27 Jul 2003 16:52:01 -0000

The very first version of the International Suspect Vigiliance Nexus has been released.

ISVN (International Suspect Vigilance Nexus) is a web based system for tracking and aiding the capture of fugitives that have fled their native country. It is a system which requires international collaboration to be fully effective. Each member nation can post alerts about Fugitives which have fled their country. If the country which they believe the Fugitive has fled to is also a member nation, then they are notified that there could be an International Fugitive in their country. Once a Fugitive has been apprehended then the country that was after them are notified and communcation between the apprehenders and the hunters can begin over the extradition of the fugitive.

For anybody interested in helping develop ISVN then a mailing list is in the process of being set up. In the meantime you are encouraged to download the current source and read the enclosed documentation, especially the HACKING file which gives a brief overview of how the code is organised and what conventions are used.

An online demonstration will be set up on SF in the next couple of days. The code will hopefully be submitted to CVS soon, too.

First Release

Sat, 26 Jul 2003 10:22:03 -0000

I'll have the very first release ready soon. All I'm doing at the moment is going through the code changing all the database calls so that it uses the PEAR DB abstraction layer.

Will hopefully be ready in a couple of hours, after which I shall do the first release.
