Canto Software deployed an update to its Cumulus product line, making available several significant feature additions to Cumulus Sites, the browser-based Web publishing tool that the company released in March. The new features include an option to send email links for downloads, as well as improvements to the service's file sharing functionality.
Among the file sharing improvements are the ability to view, edit, and reuse Collection links, support for embargo dates on publishing materials, and social media sharing integration with sites like Facebook, Flichr, and Twitter. Flash movies and MP3 files are also now supported for streaming within sites.
The Cumulus 8.1.2 update is available free of charge to customers on maintenance contracts.
