Magnolia CMS 4.5 improves usability
Magnolia International has announced the release of version 4.5 of its enterprise content management system (CMS). According to the developers, this update to the Java-based CMS – available as an Enterprise Edition or an open source Community Edition – is the "largest upgrade to date", improving usability and adding a number of new features.
Magnolia CMS 4.5 includes a new framework for multi-channel publishing and support for creating web sites for mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. The new version is interoperable with other enterprise applications such as those from Microsoft, Alfresco, SAP and Oracle. Other changes include usability improvements that simplify, for example, page editing, and a new templating API. Supported enterprise standards include HTML5, Java 6, Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) and the current version of the Java Content Repository (JCR 2.0).
