Today we marked SiteFactory CMS 4.2 as code-complete. The final tests were completed successfully just a few minutes ago and the last step is to package the update and distribute it on the Mindbite Update Service.

Some of the major features in this new version include

  • Support for any language content
    i. e. Chinese, Polish, Russian etc.
  • PageType Views
    This feature extends PageTypes with customized views that connects with the existing views in SiteFactory CMS. For example, a developer can set up forms that are only displayed if you are working with a page that inherits from a specific PageType.
  • Thumbnail Cache
    Every thumbnail in a Photo Gallery are now cached physically for fast access and rendering. So if you have a Photo Gallery on you site, it will render extremely fast.
  • New version of RadEditor (Q2 2011)
    Better compatibility with web browsers. Minor bug fixes.
  • Background saving
    When working with the content of a Page’s Work Copy, the content is saved automatically in the background.
    Note that background saving is not active when editing published pages.
  • Better versioning
    Managing Page Versions has been made much easier. You can now preview an earlier version in a full website view. This means that you can see the versioned content inside the actual website design.
  • API Framework
    This is one of the biggest features in this release. With the API Framework our developers can create custom API’s for the customers’ solutions. The framework contains all necessary technology for authentication and handling methods.
    So building a new API for a customer takes no longer time than to write the actual customer specific code.

We have also squashed some bugs and improved loading times and stability.

Release schedule

Since this is such a large update we won’t release it today (because seriously, how many releases do you see on a Friday afternoon?). Instead I will focus on a release early next week.

As always these days, the update will be brought to all SiteFactory CMS 4 websites by our excellent Update Service.

Have a great weekend!
