Nuxeo Releases a New Version of the Nuxeo Platform Under a Fast Track Program

Nuxeo Releases a New Version of the Nuxeo Platform Under a Fast Track Program 
Offers Innovations in Digital Asset Management, Desktop-to-Repository
Content Synchronization, User Experience, and More 
NEW YORK, NY and PARIS -- (Marketwired) -- 06/25/13 --  Nuxeo, the
provider of a content management platform for business applications,
announces the availability of Nuxeo Platform 5.7.1, a new version of
the open source content management platform on the Fast Track,
Nuxeo's newly launched release cycle program. Fast Track releases
have odd numbered versions and more frequent updates, while Long Term
Support releases have even numbered versions and are updated
annually. 
This version features major advances in digital asset management,
customizability, user experience, and improvements for Nuxeo Drive,
content synchronization software that can be used to build
sync-enabled rich clients or server applications. With the new Fast
Track release cycle, Nuxeo is setting a precedent by offering
innovative new features and enhancements early and often. 
"In addition to its established and solidly architected Java
platform, the firm has recently added bidirectional sync and
much-improved mobile functionality. In providing a subscription-based
service for the development of content-centric business applications,
Nuxeo appears to have found its sweet spot," commented 451 Group
analyst Alan Pelz-Sharpe. 
"The new release cycle program offers the best of both worlds: a
SaaS-like release pace delivering improvements faster, without
requiring frequent upgrades for customers and partners who don't need
them," said Eric Barroca, Nuxeo CEO. "This release early, release
often rhythm is now possible thanks to the state-of-the-art software
engineering practices and tooling we've developed over the years."  
Key features of Nuxeo Platform 5.7.1 include: 


 
--  A completely refactored user interface for the Digital Asset
    Management module, so that the 3 panels (search, list / thumbnail,
    asset view with metadata) are configurable with Nuxeo Studio,
--  Major improvements for Nuxeo Drive, with full support for macros,
    support for more content types and for custom content types, which is
    critical for business applications,
--  Enhanced user experience, with saved search sharing, a workflow tab to
    group tasks and run bulk operations, and a CSV importer, among many
    other new features,
--  Platform monitoring and collection of metrics using Yammer Metrics,
    with data accessible from JMX, Graphite or any backend supported by
    Metrics, and support for application-specific metrics,
--  Full OSGi compliance for the Content Automation client, a fluid Java
    wrapper for the REST API which runs on the JVM or on Android,
--  Optimizations and enhancements in the Nuxeo Visible Content Store, the
    content repository technology, such as support for Oracle on Amazon
    RDS and Microsoft SQL Server 2012, and faster update of complex
    properties,
--  New authentication plugins for Kerberos, OAuth 2.0 and OpenID, in
    addition to a fully customizable authentication page,
--  New Nuxeo Marketplace packages, including a permissions audit plugin
    and an integration with Jenkins that delivers easily readable
    continuous integration reporting.

  
Multiple contributions from partners and community members have been
vetted and integrated into this new version of the Nuxeo Platform. 
Nuxeo Platform 5.7.1 is available for download immediately. The
installation wizard gives access to a free 30-day trial of Nuxeo
Studio, for easy configuration and customization of the platform.
