Kentico CMS 1.1 Introduces KentiForm Technology

Kentico Software has released Kentico CMS 1.1 for ASP.NET. It comes with new KentiForm Engine that makes development of content editing forms much easier. The new version 1.1 of Kentico CMS for ASP.NET introduces a new KentiForm Engine that allows developers to easily create and deploy content editing forms without programming. They only need to specify field names, types and how the fields will be displayed. The KentiForm engine then reads the form definition and displays a form. The engine also automatically ensures data loading, validation and saving. Kentico relies on traditional SQL database instead of XML to provide better performance and flexibility in publishing the content. www.kentico.com
