Dear All,

After nearly six months of work a new version of the KForge software is 
ready for release. As you no doubt know, KForge/KnowledgeForge is one 
the OKF’s main activities with the KForge software being used to run the 
KnowledgeForge service. Two years after work first started on the 
project, KnowledgeForge is really beginning to live up to the original 
vision, hosting, among other projects, 2GB of parliamentary data and 
parsing software, an open repository of cave data, open shakespeare and 
kforge itself.

The 0.12 release of KForge provides a large set of of new features and 
bugfixes. More details in the release notes below and on the KForge 
project website (http://www.kforgeproject.com/).

#### About KForge ####

KForge is an open-source (GPL) system for managing software and 
knowledge projects. It re-uses existing best-of-breed tools such as a 
versioned storage (subversion), a tracker (trac), and wiki (trac or 
moinmoin), integrating them with the system's own facilities (projects, 
users, permissions etc). KForge also provides a complete web interface 
for project administration as well a fully-developed plugin system so 
that new services and features can be easily added.
