Today, we have the release candidate RC1 of OpenI 2.0 available for download. There is also a demo available at (login is openi2/openi2)

We look forward to hearing your feedback on improving this release as we work on further testing of this version to get to general release. Please note that we are changing the license of OpenI to GPL v2 from this release since we feel that GPL is a much better option for us at the moment as it enables us to include other GPL-based components in our distribution.

Here’re some more details on the release:
