Anahita the Alpha Girl in the Social Networking Universe

Breakfast at the Joes

We are celebrating the 4000 code commit and we thought it was about time to release some code to the public so all the hackers and developers out there could have a look inside the existing Anahita Social Engine version 1.0 alpha 1 codename White Angelica. You can download the installable packages here

So here is what’s new:

We have changed the version number from 0.9.4 to 1.0

As an alpha release the code has been working quite well actually. It has already been tested by the Anahita partners and we have also been using it on the Anahitapolis demo for over a month now. The current release is alpha 1. Naturally it has bugs, it doesn’t have some of the features such as privacy, Access Control List, and user blocking isn’t working. Those are all fixed in the alpha 2 release that we are now working on.

Anahita Social Engine β„’ will be free as free beer

As we have mentioned many times, we will be making Anahita Social Engine available to public for free. If you’d like to download Anahita extensions, social apps, and have your technical questions answered you can always sign up as a partner.

All the Anahita code is accompanied by the GPL 2 license. Yes even the extensions and social apps. That means once you obtain a copy, you can use it anyhow you want within the terms permitted by the GPL2 license. You can read the source code, modify it, and use it as many time as you wish for your own projects or client projects.

Please don’t send us your support questions

That is what the Anahita partner’s plan is for πŸ™‚

  5. Congratulations to Rastin, Arash, and everyone else involved .

    It is really a pleasure to see Anahita as Angelica wearing GPL2 cloths πŸ™‚ – I am amazed with Alpha 1 release and really look forward for more from you people in Alpha 2.

    Good luck for your endeavors!

  6. @Flavio – thank you! let us know what you think of the code πŸ™‚

    @Vishwash – thank you so much. Yes we think social web and GPL go hand in hand. That is why all Anahita code even those offered via paid plans are also GPL.

  7. Congratulations! It truly is exciting to see Anahita arrive at the first Alpha release. You are doing a beautiful job with her. I expect she will be very well received. πŸ™‚


  8. @Cynthia thank you so much. She is experiencing a healthy and natural growth. We’re looking forward to many social web solutions in the future that are developed using the Anahita framework and design philosophy.

  9. @t. nothing that you can easily install and upgrade for this release. We don’t recommend using the alpha 1 for any production sites. There will be easy migration tools for the Beta releases of Anahita.
