<h2>{tr msg="History &amp; Credits"}</h2>

<p>{tr msg="In 2010, <a href=\"http://www.intevation.de\">Intevation</a>, <a href=\"http://www.kdab.com/\">KDAB</a>, <a href=\"http://uk.linkedin.com/in/pauljadams\">Dr. Paul Adams</a> and <a href=\"http://ch.linkedin.com/in/georggreve\">Georg Greve</a> worked together to re-launch the professional support of the Kolab Groupware Solution into the <a href=\"http://kolabsys.com\">Kolab Systems AG</a>, which took the place of the Kolab-Konsortium."}</p>

<p>{tr msg="Kolab Systems together with its partner network, the Kolab Enterprise Community, has since been the primary facilitator of the Kolab Community, including for the provision of infrastructure, and the focal point for further development of the Kolab Groupware Solution, e.g. for inclusion of ActiveSync support in version 2.3 of the server, or for native packaging on the various platforms."}</p>

<p>{tr msg="If you want to join the community, please visit <a href=\"http://wiki.kolab.org\">http://wiki.kolab.org</a> and <a href=\"http://kolab.org\">http://kolab.org</a>."}

<h3>{tr msg="History before 2010"}</h3>

<p>
{tr msg="The Kolab project owes a great deal of thanks to the people of the <a href=\"http://www.openpkg.org/\">OpenPKG</a> project. OpenPKG allows Kolab to run on many diverse platforms in a reliable and predictable manner, by providing a common, easy-to-install, cross-platform base on which to build the server."}
</p>

<p>
{tr msg="To use all Kolab2 features you need an interoperable client. The KDE Kolab Client was the first such client to be developed and is still considered the reference platform for others to follow. The KDE groupware component Kontact can act as Kolab2 Client. Many thanks to the <a href=\"http://www.kde.org\">KDE Project</a> for providing such a powerful base on which to build this client solution."}
</p>

<p>
{tr msg="Users of Outlook on Microsoft Windows are able to use a proprietary plug-in to inter-operate with the Kolab server. For Kolab2 the preferred plug-in is the <a href=\"http://www.toltec.co.za/\">Toltec Plug-in</a> by Radley Network Technologies CC. Radley has worked closely with the Kolab community to help develop the Kolab2 storage format."}
</p>

<p>
{tr msg="A list of additional Outlook plug-ins that provide interoperability with the Kolab server is <a href=\"http://www.kolab.org/kolab-plugins.html\">maintained on the Kolab website</a>."}
</p>

<p>
{tr msg="There is also a <a href=\"http://www.kolab.org/webclient.html\">web-based client</a> in development which provides full groupware functionality to mobile users through a web interface. It allows users to access their email, calendars, tasks, etc. from anywhere in the world, by simply connecting through a standard web browser. The web client would not have been possible without the excellent <a href=\"http://www.horde.org/\">Horde project</a> on which to build."}
</p>

<p>
{tr msg="As Kolab is a Free Software project, anyone can help to extend the functionality of the software. An active community has developed around the software with many people throughout the world contributing. The project was originally started in 2002 by a joint-venture of three companies: <a href=\"http://www.erfrakon.com/\">erfrakon</a> (design, architecture and server); <a href=\"http://www.intevation.de\">Intevation</a> (project management) and <a href=\"http://www.klaralvdalens-datakonsult.se/\">Klar&auml;lvdalens Datakonsult</a> (client)."}
</p>

<p>
{tr msg="<a href=\"http://www.codefusion.co.za/\">Code Fusion cc</a> joined the project soon after the original Kolab1 server was released. Its developers are primarily responsible for an updated engine (which forms the base of the Kolab2 server), the web client, as well as contributing to development of the Kolab2 storage format."}
