Really Strategies Releases RSuite Version 3.5

Really Strategies, Inc. released RSuite version 3.5, a content management system created exclusively for publishers. The latest software release includes new features, enhancements, and usability based on customer feedback and requests. New search features provide editors and publishers the ability to drill down and locate content based on full-text, metadata, and XML fielded searching. RSuite customers can configure multiple search forms mapped to the publishers’ content. In other words, publishers’ metadata and XML fields can be presented to the user in the search interface, revealing the ways that content has already been classified. New tools allow users to search for content objects based on the metadata of their containing packages,  for example, finding all articles in a book when the metadata exists only on the book.  Search results can be copied to create a new packaging of content in the repository. A personal clipboard feature provides users the functionality to quickly organize and work with select content in their own personal whiteboard space. Metadata forms can be configured per role so that the correct fields are exposed to the appropriate staff. www.rsuitecms.com

Typo3 Version 4.4 Released

The TYPO3 Community released the newest version of their Open Source project TYPO3. TYPO3 has been downloaded over 4.6 million times. The latest TYPO3 version 4.4 makes TYPO3 easier than ever before – especially for newbies. A TYPO3 website is now up and running in 5 minutes after it has been downloaded and using the included template it is ready to use. The new introduction package offers TYPO3 newbies a configurable template immediately after installation. Using simple examples it demonstrates TYPO3 concepts and possibilities. At the same time this template can of course be used for the first own website, since e.g. the colour-scheme of the template can easily be changed without TYPO3 expert knowledge. The TYPO3 Backend has a new visual appearance with enhanced look & feel. Additionally the entire backend CSS has been revised which improves the overall backend loading speed. Custom backend skins can now be created thanks to this restructuring. Installing TYPO3 using the new installation script is a lot easier than before. In three steps TYPO3 is up and running and users can even change to their preferred database system in the process. Defaults keep the user from having to make too many decisions and therefore simplifies getting started with TYPO3. The built-in editor "HTMLarea“ is now completely based on ExtJS, the JavaScript framework that TYPO3 includes since version 4.3. It is now the first and only feature-complete Open Source Rich Text Editor (RTE) that is based entirely on ExtJS, freely available for the public and now included out-of-the-box in TYPO3 version 4.4. For the TYPO3 Backend editor this means improved loading speed of the text editor without having to give up on any of its features. The new TYPO3 Task Center allows for the creation and management of tasks for all TYPO3 backend users. Additionally editors can send notes to each other and instantly find the documents they edited recently. With its completely revised interface the new Task Center fits seamlessly into the new look & feel of TYPO3 version 4.4. http://www.typo3.org

Cambridge Semantics has announced the 2.0 release of its Anzo platform.
