Subject Need help evaluating wave for a project
Date Thu, 04 Apr 2013 00:52:40 GMT
I am looking into building a sort of collaborative document management
application.  I remembered wave from the google beta days and I remember it
having two features that just astonished me, two features that could
complete my design for this new CMS system im designing.

the first feature was its concurrent editing of a document.  I remember the
presenter creating a new wave, indicating that it was a document, not a
message, sharing it with other users, and then like 6 people started
editing the document in different languages at different locations, at the
same time.  I remember the presenter talking about the control bus that
made that possible and how it was that single feature that took the longest
to get right

The second feature was the history replay.  he was able to pull up a
document and click some kind of history button and a time bar similar to
windows media players showed up, he was then able to slide the bar all the
way to the left to an empty document and replay each and every change that
happened to that document one at a time until all modifications culminated
into the present state of the document.

My memory is fuzzy so i may have gotten the fine details wrong, but the
essence of what those features were are here.  My question is in the apache
version of this thing, what are the status of those two features, what are
the plans for them, and where would i find them in the old google code if
they havn't been migrated over yet.

thanks guys

You want it fast, cheap, or right.  Pick two!!
