dotProject is a web-based, multi-user, multi-language project management application. It is free and open source software, and is maintained by an open community of volunteer programmers.

History[edit]

dotProject was originally developed by Will Ezell at dotmarketing, Inc. to be an open source replacement for Microsoft Project, using a very similar user interface but including project management functionality. Begun in 2000, the project was moved to Sourceforge in October 2001.

The project stalled in late 2002 when the original team moved to dotCMS. Subsequently Andrew Eddie and Adam Donnison, two of the more active developers, were granted administration rights to the project. Andrew continued to work on the project until he moved on to Mambo and later Joomla. Adam remains an administrator.[when?]

In late 2007, the new dotProject team began a major redevelopment using the Zend Framework, with version 3 (dP3) the expected target release to be utilising it.[2] A fork called web2project was initiated at the same time.

Support and Community[edit]

Volunteers provide free support in the community forum, while the core development team offers commercial support via the Priority Support Forum.

As of May 2013,there were over 50,210[3] registered users in the dotProject forums and an average of 500–700 downloads each day.[4]
