Alfresco 2.2.0 ECM Release Enhancements

The 2.2.0 release includes the following ECM enhancements:

JMX-based Server Administration
Alfresco 2.2 adds support for JSR-160, providing a new JMX interface for system administrators to access Alfresco via a standard JMX console that support JMX Remoting. With JSR-160 support, sys admins can now change log levels, enable or disable file-servers all without having to stop and restart the Alfresco server.
Email-based Collaboration
Alfresco 2.2 adds support for email-based collaboration. In 2.2, users can directly email content into the Alfresco repository. This can be accomplished using one of two methods:
  1. An end-user specified friendly email alias for a space
  2. Directly emailing a space or a documents database ID (DBID).
Email collaboration support includes:
  • Automatic capture and archival of all attached files with a captured email message
  • Automatic creation of discussions for any emails directly referencing a specific document via its DBID.
Module Logging
As of Alfresco version 2.2 (post BETA) each module can have its own log4j.properties file, which is placed in the same directory as module.properties. Therefore, you can control the logging levels of classes within your module without having to modify the main log4j.properties file.


Alfresco 2.1.0 ECM Targeted Release Enhancements
