The framework is based on PHP 5 and PostgreSQL and has been running the students' community UniHelp.de (a platform for exchanging study-related documents and connecting students) in Magdeburg since 2002.
The entire framework is released under the GNU Affero General Public License v3 at http://www.xpyrus.org. A unix-based server is required for installation and use of all features, however, a hosting service can be provided by UniHelp e.V. on request, especially for student organizations.
