The folder feature and better support for document and book sharing were sponsored by the Open Science Lab at the TIB Leibniz Information Centre for Science and Technology University Library. Improvements to the OJS integration, downloadable document templates, and a filtering feature for tracked changes were sponsored by the Cluster of Excellence ROOTS at Kiel University.

Fidus Writer in new contexts

Over the past few years, Fidus Writer has moved from being a concept to being used in real-world settings. We like hearing stories of how you use it. 

An example thereof is the Technical University of Munich (TUM). It is running its instance for its students, which we helped set up for them. They have created tutorial videos showing how to use several Fidus Writer features. While they made the tutorials for their internal use, they are sufficiently generic to interest other Fidus Writer users.
