dotCMS announced today that it has made dotCMS 1.9.1 available. This follows the July 27 release of 1.9.
“We have never launched a point release with this number of new features,” commented Will Ezell, CTO of dotCMS. “I am very proud of our R&D team, the Community and Partners for knocking this out 7 weeks after a major release.”
The major additions of 1.9.1 include:
- Multi-lingual backend now includes Spanish, French, German and Conversational Chinese translations. Thanks to our Partners CGX AG and Asta Systems!
- Red-lining : “what’s changed” tracks additions, deletions before publishing.
- Additionally, we have created an admin tool to allow a site administrator to build new indexes on a scheduled basis.
- New I/O friendly disk cache implementation speeds page delivery and overall
- JSP/Velocity integration tool eases legacy/enterprise system integration by allowing JSPs to be wrapped by velocity templates and content.
- Improved starter site ships with Events calendar, more demonstrations, Google Maps and Google Analytics.
- Multi-host sites will exclude system content by default, more cleanly separating content that lives on specific hosts.
- Multi-host sites log you into the host that you are viewing by default.
- Community contributed JSON Tool – server side JSON handling that allows you to consume and reuse JSON from remote systems – thanks Michael Fienen (@fienen)!
- Community contributed email Tool – scripting friendly tool allows email communication from within Velocity – thanks Chris Falzone (@chris_falzone)!
- A number of minor bug fixes and improvements.
All of the improvements listed above are available in the Community Edition of dotCMS, with the exception of Red-Lining. All 1.9.1 features will be included in all Enterprise products.
