What is Horde? ============== :Last update: $Date: 2007/12/20 15:01:20 $ :Revision: $Revision: 220.127.116.11 $ :Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org .. contents:: Contents .. section-numbering:: The Horde Project is a group of developers who write Web applications using the Horde Application Framework, itself a product of the Project. The Horde Application Framework is written in PHP, and provides the common tools a Web application requires: classes for dealing with preferences, compression, browser detection, connection tracking, MIME, and more.
