The Plone Foundation recently released the 2.1 version of Plone, a Content Management System for the Zope application server. Plone runs on all major operating systems including Linux, Windows, Solaris, FreeBSD and Mac OS X. Plone is available in more than 50 languages. Notable features include time-based content deployment and role-based authoring and publishing. Plone 2.1’s new set of features provide users with tools to enhance their productivity while maintaining an optimal user experience. The new version also gives content managers and end users sophisticated, yet simple, ways to more effectively search and organize their content. “LiveSearch” provides an instant preview of search results when typing, while “Smart Folders” allow content managers to arrange content according to usage. Available add-on products allow Windows desktop integration, handling of multilingual content, rapid deployment into existing IT infrastructure, and a host of other features from blogs to enterprise authentication. A number of entities offer Plone products, training, support, hosting, and consulting services.
