HatTip to Pete Cashmore. This seems like a pretty cool app that's coming out. Mashable's Pete Cashmore has a review:

Here’s an app that’s generating a lot of interest from both Ruby on Rails and Ajax fans. Fluxiom is an asset management app for enterprises with a cool ajaxy interface - it reminds me of some of the work the 37Signals guys are doing. Thomas Fuchs, one of the creators of Fluxiom, explains the key features:

* Upload/Manage/Preview/Download digital media files and documents from any browser and platform (IE, Firefox/Mozilla, Safari and others)
* User-definable tags for categorizing, plus realtime tag filtering and RSS feeds for tag filters (like “inform me of any changes for assets tagged as ‘Marketing’ and ‘Logos’”)
* Freely zoomable "thumbnail" view and full-screen previews
* Realtime searching in metadata and inside files and documents (indexed fulltext search for things like PDF, DOC, and so on)
* Share assets with others using automatically generated .ZIP download packages (so you don’t have to send those 50MB emails)
* Uploads are presented with a progress bar plus you can continue to work in the application while doing an upload
* Supports more than 100 file formats, color profiles, EPS crop marks, plus some more "professional" features
