Atomz Enhances Security, Authoring, &, Desktop Integration to Publish

Atomz announced that it has added new features and functionality to Atomz Publish, including an enhanced, browser-based WYSIWYG Rich Text Editor, increased number of Internet security standards and protocols it supports, and upgraded integration with desktop applications. Atomz Publish now works with Adobe GoLive and Macromedia Dreamweaver, as well as Web folders on both the Macintosh and Windows platforms. The Rich Text Editor interface now contains a “button bar,” enabling content authors to edit and align text and images in much the same way they would with any desktop application. Atomz Publish now provides more than a dozen secure publishing options for transferring files from its content management system to production and staging Web servers. These include FTP, SSH1 or SSH2 File Transfer Protocols, DES, ARCFour, Blowfish and more. For companies seeking an even higher-level of protection, the company also offers the Atomz VPN Solution. Web teams can tackle collaborative projects using Atomz Publish and its WebDAV support to deliver integration between the desktop and the CMS. www.atomz.com

Microsoft adds XML & XSLT Support to FrontPage

Microsoft Corp. announced that Microsoft Office FrontPage 2003 has been reinvented to support a wide range of capabilities for building dynamic, XML-based, data-driven Web sites. FrontPage 2003 will be a full WYSIWYG Extensible Stylesheet Language Transformation (XSLT) editor in which users can work with live data to create interactive and dynamic Web sites. In the WYSIWYG editor, users can create XML data-driven Web sites connecting to XML files, Web services and OLE DB data sources. It is no longer necessary to program with server-side scripting tools to develop data-driven Web sites. Users can connect multiple data sources and use the results of one database query to filter the data supplied by an XML Web service. All this work can be saved into a Web package, a new feature in FrontPage 2003 that allows for reuse. FrontPage will ship with a couple of prebuilt Web packages, including a Web log (blog) solution that can be set up with a couple clicks. Microsoft has focused on delivering features in the product that will generate clean, industry-standard code. Beta 2 of Microsoft Office FrontPage 2003 is available as part of the Microsoft Office System. The final release of the product will be out in summer 2003; pricing will be announced at that time. www.microsoft.com/office/preview/frontpage
