Forma LMS: the open source after docebo
A new identity
Obviously the new developement needed a new name (Docebo is a registered trademark and stil the name of the original project), so we tried to give the project a new, strong and meaningful identity, and it was "Forma Lms". Name and logo were designed with the collaboration of many clients, partners and colleague from different countries: you will find a few more details here
A solid project
Now on, it won't be just a single company behind this powerful software, but a group of partner companies sharing years of experiences in the elearning and web developement sector to keep alive the project and make it grow: realizing this first release has been also and mainly an opportunity to design a solid process of collaborative developement, wich we hope will give the project new stability and continuity. We ant this to be the first step of long journey, where the active partecipation of the community will play a decisive role.
The new release
The new platform is based on the last open source release of Docebo (405 Community Edition) and will be available for download within a few days: it features more than 70 changes in bugfix, functional improvements, code optimizations and addons updates. Many of these improvements were originally released for some partner's clients, and many come from the community efforts to keep sharing and improve the software. Also, a few community members were actively involved in the testing and debugging process. It will be possible to upgrade directly from any docebo open source version to the new Forma Lms
