We are pleased to announce the release of the final stable version Plumi 4.0 based on the latest Plone 4.0. Plumi is a package of Plone products and customisations that enables you to create your own video-sharing community, out of the box. Plumi is an open-source free software project maintained by EngageMedia since 2005, and used to run the website.

Moving to Plone 4 is a major step forward for the Plumi project, which includes all the improvements available inside Plone 4. Plone 4 is faster and easier to use than ever, you can read all about it here.

This new final version of Plumi 4.0 includes bug fixes and improvements to ensure a stable release primarily focused on rebasing Plumi on Plone 4. Other improvements include updating the caching system to create a faster site, clean-up of installation and architecture to ensure forwards-compatibility, updating of third-party software modules, and inclusion of codecs required by the transcoding framework to make installation easier. Developers now also have the option to install a lighter development site for testing purposes, or a fully-featured production website.
