How do you pronounce name of project ?
Like this: Dawl-eee-bahr
or to put it another way
- Version 1.0 was released in September 2003.
Rodolphe works principally on development and win First Place at the Trophées du libre in 2003, in the category "Enterprise management". This was the reason why other developers discovered this new software. Among them Laurent Destailleur realized its first modifications to the project in December 2003. He was then helped by Régis Houssin 1.5 year later, in June 2005. They are the 2 main leaders until today but were helped by many external contributions from other standalone developers or companies. On September 2011, sources were moved onto GitHub and contribution are coming since from all the world.
