Yes it is. Many make the mistake in saying, that the Enterprise (aka Commercial) version of dual licensed open source products is not open source. In our case, it is still open source, so you get the full source code, and you can do many things with it.
But why pay than? What is the commercial version for?
Because the commercial or enterprise version is a cleaned up version of the code, it is tested and proven. The community version (the free, unsupported) is based on the recent comme... [More]
We have developed a CMIS draft implementation in Sense/Net 6.0 Beta 2, soon to be released. It is possibly the first .NET implementation, as all supporting companies except from Microsoft are JAVA based. It is surely the first open source implementation on the .Net platform. What is CMIS? Quoting WikiPedia: “Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) is a proposed standard consisting of a set of Web services for sharing information among disparate content repositories that seeks t...

Our team lead developer is a real geek, and we love him for this. He wrote a Microsoft Power Shell plugin that enables users, especially developers and command line addict sysops to access the Portal File System (PFS) from a command line interface.
As you can see from the screesnhot, the first commands install the plugin, so when you type CD TNG: you actually switch the current directory to the PFS root. A simple DIR command lists the folders from the PFS, indicating the content type, Your... [More]
Yeeeesssss. Portal builders, developers and end users will all love this feature. Now you can access your contents from Total Commander, Windows Explorer or Visual Studio, or anything that supports the WebDAV protocol. You can even map it as a drive. So you can hav P:\ as the root folder of your Portal File System. Check out the screenshot with the first working prototype. This is a big boost to productivity for both builders and end users, because now you can work from your favourite ... [More]
Content Types are the heart and soul of Sense/Net 6.0.
A content type is a reusable set of fields you want to apply to certain contents. Everything (every content) you see in Portal Explorer and on Sense/Net 6.0 portal pages is defined by Content Types - all the files, users, groups, webcontents, page templates, pages and even folders.
If you will be building a site the first thing you will be bumping into are Content Types. For example if you want to run a news site the first t... [More]
It's been a long way. It started with the Sense/Net Portal Engine 1.0 back in 1998. From this construction evolved the 2.0 and upcoming versions all the way up to the Sense/Net Portal Engine 5.5 Release 2 released in 2006. This was a truly enterprise CMS but with the source closed. Two years ago we decided to start from scratch and develop a radically new concept under an open source lincense. And today we've come to the point when all of the Sense/Net team is happy to announce that ... [More]
I am happy to announce that Sense/Net 6.0 (codenamed Sense/Net Portal Engine TNG) will be released later today under GPL. Those who registered for beta testing will receive an e-mail alert as soon as the code is available on CodePlex. This might happen quite late, but definitely today! ;-)
I promised a while ago to publish some PFS query examples. The good news is that Gergő has made a fine article on the topic, find it here.
