Extension award 2005 dam
Extension Award 2005
Category: Newcomers Owner: René Fritz
Media (DAM) is the Winner of the Extension Award 2005 in the Category "Newcomers". The award was organized by the Extension Coordination Team.
Our congratulations go to an extension of best usefullness and high quality with continous support in a dedicated newsgroup. The extension is one important step froma Web CMS a full featured CMS.
Although dam is available in the TER from an early state and developed continously, we count it as newcomer for 2005. In this year the newsgroup was started, wich gave one deciding impulse for a widespread acceptance.
The extension has been proposed by Stefan Geith on 29. dec 2005 in typo3.dev.
I would like to propose DAM. Even if it is not finaly finished, its my favourite, because it ends all the troubles, organising these 'dam'ned file-resources ... I already use the verson von July 2005 and it works great. - Stefan
