CMIS Public Review Officially Kicked Off
Almost one year after the official OASIS review process kicked off, the CMIS Technical Committee voted to send the CMIS 1.0 draft to Public Review. Over 70% of TC members voted and there were no "no" votes.
OASIS made the review process official on October 23 by sending out a press release announcing the Review Process. The review process, which ends December 22, 2009, is an open invitation to review the specification and make comments.
Testing CMIS 1.0
If you use Alfresco, you have the opportunity to test CMIS 1.0. Alfresco Community 3.2 now supports CMIS 1.0. Alfresco Community is the community version of their open source enterprise CMS.
They've also announced a virtual training session to help you get started. The session happens tomorrow, November 24, at 11am ET. Expect to review the draft specification and understand Alfresco's implementation of that spec in Community 3.2.
