Open source Magnolia CMS receives WebDAV interface
Version 4.2 of the open source Magnolia CMS has been released. In this latest release, the developers further extended the Standard Templating Kit (STK) which has been part of Magnolia since version 4.0. Version 4.0 also features the new WebDAV interface for editing and managing templates. According to the developers, the templates have been optimised for search engines and comply with the W3C's content accessibility guidelines. The data module can now handle hierarchical data types, which allows complex structures to be mirrored and managed with ease.
The Java-based CMS (Java Platform Enterprise Edition, JavaServer Pages and the JSR-170 Java content repository) is developed by Swiss vendor Magnolia International. In addition to the Community Edition, which is released under the GPLv3, the vendor also offers a commercial variant with enterprise features, support and product guarantees. The Standard Template Kit is available separately under the CPAL licence.
