[seul-edu] MimerDesk 2.0 improves collaborative learning process

The new stable release of MimerDesk introduces Type sets for the freedom of 
choice in pedagogical methodologies, a better structured and more intuitive 
user interface and new tools to further enhance effective collaboration.

MimerDesk takes one step closer towards pedagogical independence in the sense
that it is not limited to specific learning process methodologies, but instead
provides the possibility for the user to create Type sets for different types
of learning processes like Problem Based Learning.

The Project Manager in MimerDesk 2.0 is specifically designed to provide more
efficient manner of carrying out projects asynchronously. This tool is ideal
for group assignments and projects because of its illustrative nature.
The Project Manager includes a dynamic tree structure with unlimited levels of
tasks, participant specific task lists, task dependencies, milestones and
enhanced GANTT charts.

MimerDesk 2.0 also delivers an enhancement to the Calendar in the form of a
new tool, the Meeting Planner. The main objective of this tool is to ease the
process of arranging meetings with three or more people, be it for a school
project or a board meeting. The Meeting Planner is integrated with the
Calendar so that all meetings that are agreed upon are directly sent to the
participants' Calendars.

MimerDesk 2.0 introduces a more intuitive and easy-to-use structure in
the form of top-level tabs that separate Personal, Groups and Administration
tools to form their own wholes. An individual user and group administrators
can dynamically select the desired set of tools to work with and this freedom
makes the environment more flexible and suitable for different types of 
communities, groups and individuals.

As is to be expected, the MimerDesk 2.0 release fixes numerous bugs and
inconsistencies found in previous versions.
