Atex Announces Support for e-Reader Publishing

Atex announced their content management system, atex content, supports direct publication to e-readers and tablet devices. Media companies can capitalize on these technologies to publish content without custom development. The functionality could also allow publishers to develop new digital revenue streams while increasing the level of customer interaction. As e-reader demand is expected to increase as the technology develops, consumers will require more of their content to be delivered digitally. Atex content could help media companies take advantage of this trend with functionality to streamline digital content publishing. Whether it’s from print or the Web, editors can take content and reuse it in digital devices without needing additional staff or hardware. Instead of relying on a few products, e-readers could help media companies diversify what they provide to consumers. Depending on the model used, a media company will be able to track the content customers like most and allow readers to leave comments and answer poll questions. These social features should help publishers build tighter relationships with their readers and understand what content will retain their interest. www.atex.com

Adeptol Updates Document Viewer Enterprise Edition

Adeptol released its Document Viewer Enterprise Edition Version 4.4 with a buffering and rendering technology to load documents of size up to 0.5 GB in one second. This new version of Enterprise Viewer introduces features for developers and business users as well as advanced document search capabilities, thumbnails support, watermarking, and page rotation. The Enterprise Viewer uses a built-in optimization technology to get pages directly from the server as they are being rendered. What this means is, users can start reading page one of document immediately and continue to do operations such as search, text selection, scrolling between pages, while rest of the document loads. The viewer estimates the network connection speed, document size, server load among other factors such as browser, client machine memory and is designed to optimize the load time appropriately. Users can view more than 300 document types without the need to download plug-ins or ActiveX components. The new Document Viewer Enterprise Edition is available immediately for existing and new customers.  http://www.ajaxdocumentviewer.com

Alfresco Community License Shifts to LGPL

Alfresco announced they will be changing from the GPL license to a LGPL license for Alfresco Community. While GPL is the most common open source license in use today, Alfresco feels that an LGPL license will best suit their plans for their software platform moving forward. One of the key differences between LGPL and the current GPL is that after linking to the Alfresco software, it will not affect the status license of the proprietary software linking to it. The license change will be incorporated into the next update to Alfresco Community, which is due for release in March. www.alfresco.com/
