Magnolia CMS 4.4 Empowers Enterprise Web Authors

ECM Plus – Open source content management vendor Magnolia has released CMS 4.4, with tools for enterprise web authors to collaborate in multi-lingual sites.

According to the company, new features include collaboration controls to coordinate concurrent editing activities, convenient source language export and re-import of translated content, and multi-step forms that enable visitors to step forward and backward without losing their data.

V4.4 provides dependency management of content elements to assure that required data from various sources will be available when the page is published, non-immediate deletions so that an author can easily restructure a site and activate changes only once all activities are done, workflow controls for approval of deletions and undos, redlining to compare page versions, and web-based spell checker support.

Boris Kraft, Magnolia CTO said: “Previous enhancements had been aimed at developers using our templates to create custom solutions, and administrators setting up sites in multiple languages. This final rollout of our development cycle will have an even greater payback, by allowing enterprise content authors to collaborate in the efficient, cost-effective creation and translation of high-quality sites.”

V4.4 is available for immediate download. Both the Community and Enterprise editions of Magnolia CMS 4.4 are available for download immediately. The Community Edition is a free open source download. Pricing for the Enterprise Edition, which includes additional features for large organizations, together with professional service and support, starts at $12,000 USD.
