Version 4.2 of Colligo Network’s Contributor for the SharePoint family of products launched yesterday, with compatibility for Microsoft Office 2010 and for SharePoint 2010’s new features around enterprise content management.

According to the company, highlights of the release include support for Outlook 2010 for Contributor Pro, Add-In and Uploader customers; the support of Keyword Metadata fields within the Colligo metadata editor; and in-place records management.

The metadata editor lets users set, edit and modify terms in their “folksonomies,” while in-place records management restricts access and use of items stored in SharePoint.

Further, Contributor 4.2 enables users to download document sets from the server for viewing or modification, and identify them with special icons. Also, optimizations to processing and synchronization of content with the Contributor SQL database have been built in to better performance.
