DrProject 1.0 Final now available

We are very pleased to announce the release of DrProject 1.0. For those of you who aren’t regular readers ;-), DrProject is a web-based software project management portal specifically tailored for classroom use. Like its predecessor, Trac, it integrates Subversion with a wiki, a simple bug tracker, and milestones. Unlike Trac, it supports multiple projects out of the box, relies on the underlying Unix system for authentication, and provides per-project mailing lists with whitelisting. DrProject is already in use in classes at the University of Toronto, and is being trialed at other educational institutions.

We’d like to thank the University of Toronto, Perforce, the Jonah Group, IBM, and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council for their support. We’d also like to thank everyone whose hard work made this release possible. As they say: w00t!

(Please note: the 1.0 release is rather slow due to some “features” of the wiki-to-HTML converter. These will be corrected for the 1.1 release, which we expect to make available in about four weeks.)
