Progressive Information Technologies announced the release of Vasont 8.0, the latest version of its content management system for cross-media publishing. Combining digital asset management and content management functionality, Vasont 8.0 handles the creation, management and publishing of content ranging from basic text and graphics to audio and video files. New and enhanced features of Vasont 8.0 include multi-language translation management, built-in customizations, asynchronous processing, performance enhancements, integration of XSLT, enhanced versioning, security access, and an expanded Application API. Vasont 8.0 solves the challenge of repurposing content across all media — print, Web, CD-ROM and wireless channels — while ensuring enterprise-wide content integrity. Vasont 8.0 stores only one copy of the content in its repository and automatically updates content in all of its uses throughout the system once a user makes a change to the original content. Vasont 8.0 will be available this February as a client/server or Web-based system.,
