Elgg, one of the popular open source social networking platforms, which we have mentioned here, has released a draft road map highlights the key featues for the yet to be released Elgg 1.7.
Some of its highlights include,
- Privacy, shared access collections
- Full text search
- The Wire re-factored -> conversational micro-blogging etc.,
Privacy, shared access collections:
The shared access collections will provide a way for users to create an access collection to which they invite in other users. Once the invitation has been accepted, all users get the new access collection as an access option on new objects created; blog post, files, pages and so on.
The Wire re-fractored
Many of the Elgg plugins are being re-worked to enhance their functionality. The new wire plugin is being highlighted, which would serve as a simple yet effective plugin for conversational micro-blogging.
Threaded replies are now supported within a completely redesigned UI that clusters these 140 character-driven conversations and floats the most recent ones to the top.
