Percussion Software announced Rhythmyx Content Manager V4.5. Rhythmyx V4.5 is based on a SOAP architecture that allows for enterprise application integration and enables authors to use their existing content creation tools (like Microsoft Word) that can now dynamically interact with the Rhythmyx server. It also enables integration with external repositories such as portals, application servers and other asset management systems. Other new features include: Content Services, Publishing Services, Site Explorer, Support for Content Contributor Groups, and a new Graphical Interface for Content Editor Engine. Rhythmyx V4.5 will also offer administration enhancements to the Publishing Engine, Sybase and UDB Support for Rhythmyx Repositories and LDAP Group Support. Percussion’s Rhythmyx Content Manager V4.5 supports Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000 and Solaris platforms.
