is the collaboration software we use.
Much more than a chat room, it enables us to coordinate
social activities, locate people we need to
get in touch with, and have a shared area to relax in.
Shadowlands Forum is the dedicated, wonderful work of Jeremy Monin, Dan Chin, and Matt Lochansky, and is released under the GNU Public License. Matt also did these web docs.
It's been under constant use and development by the shadowlands community for the last eight years, and used by countless other places as well.
Shadowlands Forum has many
good features resulting from its heavy continuous use
and much helpful feedback from Shadowlands members. Or you can read about
some of the Communications and user functions, utilities, fun stuff, or guest abilites.
If you are a linux server administrator, find out what added flexibility we have provided for you.

The devel version has fixes needed to run on Fedora Core. The current devel version is 1.9.7-devel18 and is avail for download (gz) (bz2). It's no less stable (we always run this version at shadowlands.org) but the new features might need some cosmetic tweaking. (devel changelog)
