Alfresco Enterprise Edition 3.0 will include:

Microsoft Office SharePoint protocol support requiring no additional client installation
Alfresco Surf platform for building dynamic, REST-oriented web applications and collaborative web sites
RESTful API delivering content and collaboration services for customizing and developing Alfresco applications
Preview of Alfresco Share, a new social computing application
Document library which scales to over 100 million documents

Alfresco Enterprise Edition 3.0 builds upon the solid foundation that previous versions of Alfresco have presented. Alfresco is still 5 times faster, and up to 10 times cheaper than proprietary Enterprise Content Management solutions. But version 3.0 goes a step further. Alfresco 3.0 includes Alfresco Share - giving you Facebook features for the Enterprise.

Key features of Alfresco Share include:

Collaboration areas for Teams, Projects, Communities of Interest
Personal and Site Dashboards
Activity Service
Social Tagging
Thumbnails and Previews
Rich Personal Profiles
People Finder
Site Finder

Alfresco 3.0 is strongly positioned as the Open Alternative to Microsoft SharePoint:

Not Microsoft Only
Use your existing Database, OS, App Server, Portal
Plug-compatible with Office
Lower Cost of Ownership
Re-use existing non-Microsoft hardware and software
Use existing development & DBA skills
Scale to enterprise on much fewer machines

The social computing features for the workplace include:

Drag-and-drop layout
Web 2.0 controls
Community-based features
Browse by tags
WYSIWYG editing
Publish to external blogs
Wiki and calendars
