Last week I announced that Community Server Evolution – a version of Community Server designed specifically for the Intranet – was released.
Today I’m happy to announce that our point release of Community Server 2008 (officially Community Server 2008.5) is now available. You can read more details about what is included in the release, such as the new wiki, here or download it here.
While this release contains many improvements to profiles, the Web Services (REST) API, and other areas the biggest investments were made into the Wiki and the new question-and-answer functionality in the forums. The Wiki is available as a core “application” and is also integrated into the sub-communities functionality. The question-and-answer functionality streamlines finding answers to questions in the forums – instead of scanning a thread for your answer, you can quickly find the answers highlighted at the top of the thread.
