Brett Profitt recently posted on the Elgg Blog that Elgg 1.8.12 has been released. Elgg is an open source social networking engine that provides a robust framework on which to build all kinds of social environments. Elgg can be found in a number of settings from campus wide social network to internal collaborative platform for small and large organizations alike.
Elgg 1.8.12 has been released with numerous bugfixes and improvements. Enhancements in this release of Elgg include:
Elgg is free to download and use. The Elgg software is dual licensed under the terms of the GNU General Public License v2 as published by the Free Software Foundation and the MIT License. Profitt points out on his blog that out that of special interest to users who are looking to use Elgg under the MIT license, the developers have replaced all code that prevented the dual license and will release an MIT version of Elgg 1.8.12 soon. In the future, this will be a single download of Elgg that covers both licenses.
