Global Moxie released Big Medium 1.3, a major update to the company’s web content management system. New features include WYSIWYG text editing, document uploads, 20 new widgets for webpage templates, and fixes for a number of reported issues. The new WYSIWYG editor requires Internet Explorer 5.5+ (Windows only), Mozilla 1.4+ (Windows, Mac OS X and Linux) or one of many Mozilla-based browsers, including Mozilla Firefox 0.6.1+, Netscape 7.1, and AOL for Mac OS X. Users of other browsers can still continue to use Big Medium, but without the WYSIWYG editing features. The new “download” article type allows documents to be added to websites. (A tabbed interface allows users to select from four article types: Text, Link, Download, Raw HTML). Twenty new template widgets provide enhanced control over the design of Big Medium’s custom page templates. New settings in the Big Medium Setup and Site Setup dialogs allow administrators to set max-size limits on document uploads. Big Medium 1.3 is available now from the Global Moxie website. The suite of Perl scripts is $129 for web servers running Linux, Mac OS X, Solaris, BSD and other Unix-flavored operating systems. (A beta preview version is also available for Windows servers.) www.globalmoxie.com
