When upgrading the site i looked for some alternatives as there were som minor things that annoyed me.
But i kept getting back to DOCman. I have used the 2.0 version on another site and it looks great !
Now i can't wait for the migration tool to finish so i can get the DOCman 1.6 upgraded to 2.0
Kind regard Bas.
what i hate that its using external library and too many files installed silently. Namely koowa,nookue framework,its plugins, com_docman,com_files , Duh not for me. thanks
I had a mixed experience with migration from previous version, I had to finish the migration by myself.
Its incredibly easy to use. The dev team is very responsive to user feedback, with several workflow improvements seen in the past weeks.
Just one more thing to add if you ask me: a migration tool from earlier versions, would haved me two days of entering all documents again.
Thanks for your review. A migration solution from DOCman 1.x is being worked on at the moment.
If you run an older version of DOCman and wish to migrate it's adviced to wait a little longer until the migration tool is available.
Minor fixes come out on a regular basis (fixing bugs). New upgrades or features on the other hand ofter take much longer than the initial estimate.
According to their own claims, this is due to quality control. It surprises me that they keep bumping into this error of estimation. At the end though, they appear to deliver a rock solid product.
