After many efforts, delays, getting desperate and several collapses, we are proud and enthusiastic to announce the release of Kune.
Kune is free software (AGPLv3) that focuses on building free/libre contents collaboratively, focused on organization work and web content publishing.
Kune is very focused on free/libre culture while attempting to empower social movements. And Kune, today, is a reality (at least in a preliminary version). You can check out a summary about Kune goals in our new homepage, and at last, you can play with a demo.
Kune attempts to create a piece of software with new added value based on our experience with our initiative ourproject.org since 2002, with the support of IEPALA and their experiences in Red EuroSur and Gloobal, and under the frame of the Comunes Collective.
As stated in a previous post, Kune integrates the Apache Wave-In-A-Box project. With Kune, collectives can use waves to share and edit contents collaboratively in real time, while publishing their contents on the web and connecting with others. Besides, thanks to the Wave Federation Protocol, Kune is decentralized, allowing users of several instances of Kune in different servers to interoperate transparently.
On the other hand, if you want to spread the word around, you can freely use the widget of our homepage by inserting the following code into your blog posts:
