Liferay Social Office is a unique app that has been around for some timebut up until recently, it hasn't been compatible with the most recent release of Liferay, namely Liferay 6.2. Well, no longer will you have to wait. Social Office is now available and updated to work with the latest release of both the Community Edition and Enterprise Edition of Liferay.
This new release now takes advantage of all of the great new features provided by Liferay 6.2, including the upgrade to AlloyUI 2.0, the revamped Calendar and Document Library and a new, extensible Notifications portlet.
