CourseForum Technologies on Monday announced the release of
ProjectForum 4.0, a major upgrade to its Web-based collaboration software. The new version offers blog-style comment posting, the ability to use a name other than the URL when linking, a new Forum Export option that generates static pages containing the content of a forum and several feature changes.
This is a free update for users who purchased their licenses within the past year. CourseForum hosts ProjectForum, with prices starting at US$20 per month, or sells it as downloadable software starting at $229 for a single group. Multiple group discounts are available, as is a free version of the software that offers basic usability but lacks the advanced features. Mac OS X v10.1 is required.
