Ektron Inc. announced Ektron CMS300 Version 4.5. The new version offers a more intuitive user experience, Web-based form capabilities and enhanced calendar features. Validation criteria can be assigned to public-facing HTML Web forms. Business users can click and choose several commonly used, out-of-the box validation rules to HTML form fields. Users can also auto email form data as well as export as XML to a third party application, and reports can be exported to Excel. The newest version of Ektron’s browser-based XML authoring tool, eWebEditPro+XML V4.1, is embedded in CMS300. The editor now includes spreadsheet-like math capabilities. Ektron has improved the CMS300 user experience by giving it the look and feel of Microsoft Outlook 2003. CMS300 allows business users, not only developers, to maintain and control multi-level navigation menus, and include items such as content blocks, library assets, external hyperlinks, forms, and other menus. www.ektron.com
