Hippo has launched Hippo CMS 7.9 with extended functionality for all users. Notable changes include Advanced Channel Management and the introduction of CKEditor, SCXML Workflows, and Secure Content Replication. These changes bring increased control over website navigation and content presentation into the hands of end-users, and enable developers to develop more advanced workflow scenarios. By introducing a secure replication mechanism between the delivery and authoring environments, Hippo CMS 7.9 adds an additional layer of security to content in staging and embargo phases.
With the Advanced Channel Management, business users can modify site menus from the Hippo CMS user interface without help from IT. With Hippo's drag and drop interface, marketers can quickly build dedicated (sub)home, landing, and campaign pages. The introduction of CKEditor as the new rich text field editor enhances usability through a wide range of new functionalities including intuitive context menus, configurable keyboard shortcuts, spell-check as you type, and more. With Secure Content Replication, only published live content resides in the delivery repository.
