New eZ Publish 4.1 brings ease-of-use topowerful Enterprise scale websites with full support and guarantees
"eZ Publish 4.1 marks yet another important milestone towards our goals", said Bård Farstad, eZ CTO. "It makes Enterprise customers more efficient via the Web with improved usability, performance and multi-platform support. The discussion with our customers and our community was key before this release and our Open Source model makes it possible to easily include their feedback and wishes. In eZ Publish 4.1, we included plug-ins made by the community and the updated version of eZ Flow part of this release is also a great illustration of this process. This strengthens the position of eZ Publish as the preferred tool for online digital media"
A new user experience for more efficiency
eZ Publish 4.1 comes with a new Online Editor (5.0) allowing users to write web content as if they were working with their favorite word processor in their favorite language. This new full XML WYSIWYG editor provides even better support out of the box for usability and accessibility standards. eZ Publish 4.1 provides also a multi-upload function enabling users to mass publish any content type from any computer through their web browser : documents, pictures, videos and more. Those new elements combined with an updated version of eZ's Portal Management solution (eZ Flow) increase drastically the efficiency of any content contributor as reporters, journalists or editors.
