Previously on OSS4LIB, it was mentioned that "A new and promising ILS is being developed and maintained by the Georgia Public Library Service for use by the Georgia Library PINES Program, a consortium of 249 public libraries.". Then there was an entry about the project being ahead of schedule, and another concerning a demo. What was never posted here is that Evergreen has been running live in production at PINES (which is now over 260 libraries) since September of 2006. There is a vibrant community growing around the software consisting of the PINES crew, volunteers, interested individuals, and even a handful of vendors. Evergreen has started to spread beyond Georgia, and most recently, Equinox Software and the King County Library System have teamed up to build a Proof-of-Concept Evergreen installation. Check out the press release.
