A.A.A.R. not showing buttons (SOLVED)

After the installation, if your AAAR is not showing Configure/Install/Use buttons, please update Pentaho with the latest “Community Graphics Generator” and “Community Dashboards Framework”. The solution is described here.

AAAR_for_marketplaceI have received few contacts on that problem so I think would be useful to share the solution one time for all. Thank you to jservajean and kossel for sharing the experience.

The order of the Bee. Something is happening in the Alfresco community.

Order of the BeeSomething interesting is happening in the Alfresco’s community.

I’m not talking about the Alfresco Community (Edition) of the software but the Alfresco’s community composed by people and skilled professionals.

Few weeks ago a brand new organization has been created and is called Order of the Bee. Why that name? Everything was born in the past Alfresco Summit with a Community Keynote by Jeff Potts (here the complete speech).

In my opinion, and not only in my opinion, this is a good news for the (pure) open source developers and professionals. I personally decided to join the organization together with the AAAR solution but I feel like something more interesting will happen in the nearest future. 🙂

Below I would like to submit to your attention some key concepts to better understand this organization.

The market has been steadily growing, from earning $7.4 billion in 2003 to $37.6 last year. Casino software has undergone great changes since it was first launched in 1996, and it has become increasingly important to stay up to date on these changes.
