Obinary Releases Magnolia 1.1

Obinary has released Magnolia 1.1, an update to its free Java-based Enterprise Content Management System. Magnolia 1.1 includes an improved caching mechanism that works seamlessly and automatically to deliver performance for dynamically created web pages, while maintaining full authentication mechanisms. New sample templates demonstrate the use of server side image resizing. This allows storing images independently of their display dimensions. The same source image can thus be displayed in several sizes, for example to have thumbnails and “show detail” functionality. Numerous small interface improvements and a streamlined and renamed core API further enhance the ease-of-use of Magnolia. All documentation has been updated to reflect the new API. Magnolia installers and updaters are available for all major operating systems. Magnolia can be installed quickly on all common operating-systems (JDK 1.4.1 required) and is available free of charge at www.magnolia.info, www.obinary.com
