Alkacon Software has moved its software repository from CVS to Github. Github is based on the popular distributed revision control system (DRCS) Git. The web-based hosting service Github is very popular amongst Open Source Developers.

Alkacon Software has chosen Git as revision control to keep its software development process based on the best available technology (since CVS is technically out-dated) and to achieve a better collaboration with the OpenCms community.

The source code of OpenCms is now available from Github at

Build tags follow the schema build_x_x_x and selected branches of older OpenCms versions since 6.0 are still available.

The source code of the Alkacon OAMP modules, as well as several OpenCms utility libraries, will be made available on Github as soon as possible.
