May 16, 2006

Magnolia Organization has released Magnolia 3.0 Beta 1, an open-source Enterprise Content Management System (ECM). Magnolia 3.0 integrates Web content management and document management through one Web-based, AJAX-powered user interface.

Magnolia's main new features include workflow, versioning, JSR-168 support, single-sign-on, scheduling (time-based content publishing), a new meta-template, where users can create a custom layout directly in the browser, and a new user interface. Magnolia is available in more than 15 languages including Russian, Chinese, English, French, German, and Spanish.

Three Magnolia editions are available: Magnolia Community Edition is a free, enterprise content management system based on JSR-170; Magnolia Enterprise Edition offers additional features, including availability of professional support and an upgrade path to new versions for enterprise content management; and Magnolia Business Process Edition lets users draw and document business processes directly in the browser without additional client software. Users can download Magnolia 3.0 beta 1 from the Web site.
