Within user-defined workgroups, tasks can be defined, created and assigned to workgroup members. Tasks can then be prioritized and tracked to avoid missing deadlines. Project-related documents can be created, edited, changed and versionized. These documents are shared within a workgroup and each member can access them and discuss them with other members. Modifications of tasks, projects or documents are reproduceable and can be announced through mailing lists on request.
vieW4 is part of an expandable platform which also allows for the integration of a content management system (CMS). In later releases we are planning to merge both "workgrouping" (vieW4) and CMS to represent the whole live cycle from creation to publication and beyond of documents and objects evolving from group working.

For previewing and editing Documents vieW4 makes use
is a Zope product that represents generic documents by using plugins to

Needs: GNU unRTF (http://www.gnu.org/directory/GNUunRTF.html).
Needs: xpdf (http://www.foolabs.com/xpdf/).
Note: You will not be able to preview or edit Documents without having these tools installed.
