RealizationEngine Group Communicator

The RealizationEngine is designed from the ground up to facilitate group communication and collaboration. It will store that communication to built and manage an institutional knowledge base. It is accessible from any Web browser or Web-enabled device. Classified information is easily restricted to authorized individuals. Information can be compartmentalized, restricted, or published openly, as appropriate, all from the same system. Ideas are coherently threaded, and every message is searchable in a single location and in the context of the messages related to it.

            It's not dead, yet!
            This project is not dead, it's only dormant. Due to the complete lack of user feedback, I have not bothered to update this page. If anyone is using the RE, I'd like to know about it.

            The current development version is 2.5, which includes CSS theming. It also makes internationalization possible (eventually), and starts the way for plugins/modules to extend functionality.

            I'm planning on eventually re-licensing the RE under the GPL, but that's a low priority since there are no users.

            RE running under Windows
            Okay, RealizationEngine1.0.12 release candidate 1 is out, and it runs under Windows.

            It has not been extensively tested (hense "release candidate"), and there's no better way to test it than to turn you guys and gals lose on it.

            You can download it at

            Well, Windows development is on hold until I find a solution to e-mail under windows. Anyone got any ideas?

            Re: Holy Freaking Cow! Got the RE running on a Win2K server.
            It occurs to me that all of the mail functions will be broken under windows. Anyone have any suggestions on a replacement for sendmail?

            Holy Freaking Cow! Got the RE running on a Win2K server.
            yeah, yeah, sure, it would be great if the RE ran on Windows boxes, but what a pain, right?

            Well, after several hours of getting the Win2k box configured, and everything lined out, it seems to work!

            I will attempt to release a version of 1.0.10 for Windows when I release 1.0.10 for Linux. This really makes me think that getting it to run on other Unix will be a piece of cake. (if only I had a few more boxes to play with , right?)

            I'll keep you posted.
