openDIAS version 0.8.1 released today.

The openDIAS development team are pleased to announce that openDIAS; the open source document imaging and archive system, have today released version 0.8 of the application.

OpenDIAS is a product designed to allow the home or office user to store and catalog documents, mainly (but not exclusively) from scanned physical documents. Documents are stored on a central machine and can be scanned/ imported into the archive, searched for by OCR content, date, title or assigned tag from any machine on the network.

New features in the upcoming 0.8 release include:
  • Document linkage to other docs,
  • Scanning device locking,
  • Document list has been migrated to an auto loaded list,

  • Introduction of a localisation framework (initially with English and German lang packs),
  • Various other frontend and backend improvements, tweaks and optimisations,
  • Better testing of various hardware and OS configs (including 64-bit, Ubuntu, Redhat, Debian).
