Magnolia International Ltd. announced the immediate availability of Magnolia 4.0. This forth generation of the Java-based content management system introduces production-ready content delivery templates that provide a large set of out-of-the-box functionality. Content delivery is search-engine optimized, follows accessibility guidelines and introduces support for mobile devices. The new Templating Kit allows designers and programmers to quickly and easily build best-practice Web site designs and to control the complete layouting life-cycle. Ready-made XHTML-conformant templates are available for Magnolia 4.0 to create custom Web designs that dynamically adapt  content delivery to various devices, including the iPhone. The standard templates are search engine optimized (SEO) and follow W3C accessibility guidelines. Multiple Web site designs for front- and back-ends can be managed from within Magnolia’s browser-based administration interface. Magnolia 4.0 introduces support for a new templating language called Freemarker in addition to templating in JSP (Java Server Pages). Templating with Freemarker allows to view and edit templates directly in the browser window, have templates under version- and access-control and to backup templates together with the content of a website. The Standard Templating Kit is part of Magnolia’s new Supersonic Template bundle that includes a new form module with newly-added spam protection and server-side field validation. Magnolia CMS 4.0 is available immediately. Magnolia Community Edition can be downloaded for free under an Open Source license. The Standard Templating Kit (STK) is available for download upon registration. Magnolia Enterprise Edition includes the STK, more enterprise functionality as well as support and guarantees – pricing starts at 12,000 USD. http://www.magnolia-cms.com/4-0
