BMW seeking partners for open-source car software platform

,----[ Quote ]
| At the Convergence 2008 conference on automotive electronics yesterday, BMW 
| revealed it is looking for partners as it pursues an open-source car 
| computing platform. The German company is enthusiastic about the potential 
| for such an open-source system's potential to keep up with the rapid advances 
| in technology and features in the multimedia and digital entertainment areas.    


Open-source Drupal turns pro

| The standard Drupal core already has decent management, but several Acquia 
| network modules, installed during setup, take administration a few steps 
| further. These enable your Acquia Drupal installation to communicate securely 
| with the Acquia Network and exchange configuration, operation, and profile 
| information.    
| A big part of what you're paying for with Acquia Drupal is support; the 
| portal offers a simple way to log support incidents and track your tickets. 
| During my testing, Acquia did meet the specified response deadline — and 
| resolved my questions satisfactorily.

| As we've seen time and again, in an increasing number of enterprise software
| categories, open source has become a promising alternative to commercial
| software. But there's no free ride.
| Support from developers is often problematic, and you need to find products
| with a large enough following so that programmers have an incentive to build
| add-on modules. When the Test Center reviewed open source CMSes (content
| management systems), these two factors often broke the tie between otherwise
| robust solutions and gave Alfresco the advantage.


Drupal 6.5 and 5.11 released

| using the bug tracking system, as well as critical security vulnerabilities,
| are now available for download.
