Simian Systems Inc. announced the release of Sitellite 4.2, the latest version of their content management system software. Central to the development of Sitellite 4.2 was the need to make existing Sitellite features, such as versioning, workflow, and access control, easier to implement and to manage, so that websites could more easily take advantage of these critical features. Sitellite 4.2 includes Xed 2, a What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get
(WYSIWYG) editor that embeds directly into Sitellite in web browsers, allowing non-technical content creators to build complex web pages without technical knowledge. Xed 2 includes built-in spell checking, link and image wizards, and a “box chooser” for embedding dynamic content such as the latest headlines or events listings directly into any web page. Also included are an advanced performance cache manager, an activity log for administrators to see exactly who did what and when, a revamped workflow internals and workflow management interface, refined user privileges for greater access control restrictions, improved website member services providing out-of-the-box member portal/extranet capabilities, a new template manager for easier website design control as well as built-in tools for standards compliance testing, including Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) and Section 508 testing, and more. The Sitellite 4.2 Content Management System is available immediately in both Professional and Enterprise editions.
