eSpace is currently developing a generic social network Rails application that is expandable and reusable for future projects. Several open source solutions were studied against eSpace's desired feature list. Main concerns were flexibility, expandability, user experience, multilingual support and themes support.

eSpace chose CommunityEngine plugin as it had a strong collection of social networking features and was built on RailsEngine, making it easy to customize and build on. New features were added and some updates were preformed, which resulted in the release of Version 0.1 in the last week of November 2008. Main features dealt with were adding Arabic support, supporting PostgreSQL database engine, and integrating Sphinx search engine through ThinkingSphinx plugin.

The second phase of the project, which will result in Version 0.2, will focus on adding new features to the application in order to enhance user experience.
