I'm happy to announce that the Jive SBS 3.0 build we blogged about last week is now available for download and is fully supported. Now you can download the new build from your purchases or evaluation page. (Note to current customers - a link to the 3.0 builds will automatically appear for you this week - in the meantime, try the evaluation build.)


Documentation, and a brief description of what's new, improved, and changed, can be found in the Jive SBS 3.0 documentation site. Release notes are also available.


Also of note this release is a change to the way the application is packaged and distributed. We now ship a fully configured and optimized runtime for Linux and Solaris along with the application (note - the Solaris build will be available in Q2). This means there's no need to configure the Java runtime or an application server - it's all bundled. This significantly reduces the time to install the application and means customers can take advantage of the most optimal configurations. For more information, please read the system requirements documentation.


Finally, we have a number of customers using Jive in different languages - here is the release schedule:


3.0.0 (3/16/09)
3.0.1 (4/13/09)
3.0.2 (5/11/09)
3.0.3 (6/8/09)
  • English
  • Spanish
  • French
  • Simplified Chinese
  • German
  • Italian
  • Japanese




Update: based on feedback on this post and other feedback we've decided to continue support for the MySQL and SQLServer databases. Specific dates for these changes will be announced within a week. For more details, please read the new blog post: More Details on the Jive 3.0 Platform.

Effective April 13th, 2009, Clearspace 2.0.X will enter Legacy product support phase. Version 2.0.15 will be the final scheduled maintenance release.


During the Legacy phase Jive will no longer be performing scheduled maintenance releases.  Customers still running on 2.0.x are encouraged to upgrade to the latest version of the product and should contact support for assistance with any problems encountered during upgrade.  Jive Software may continue to provide critical bug fix releases to customers on Legacy versions with current support contracts on an as needed basis.  In order to issue a patch for a Legacy version, the customer reported issue must be critical; I.E. loss of major functionality, the site is down, or customer is unable to upgrade.


If you have any questions on how this may affect your installation of Clearspace, please log a case in your account community in Jive's Support Portal, or send an email to Jive is committed to our customers success and their realizing the increased value and capabilities of our most recent releases.  If you wish to discuss any assistance or planning around your upgrade, please email us at
