Nuxeo Platform Fast Track 7.1 Released

Nuxeo Platform Fast Track 7.1 has been released, bringing about new features such as enhanced computed picture views and workflow graphs.

Foundations For Major Innovations Laid

Nuxeo Platform Fast Track 7.1 makes it simple to declare new metadata read / write processors and metadata document property mappings. It provides the features needed for using this mapping in custom automation chains context.

With the Nuxeo Platform FT 7.1, developers can easily configure metadata extraction and edits on metadata embedded files, such as:

  • Office, PDF metadata
  • EXIF, IPTC, XMP metadata
  • Media information (especially on video, pictures, and sound)

Furthermore, Nuxeo now offers the ability to easily declare and configure new views using Automation Chains. This enables developers to offer end users a selection of file sizes that can easily be downloaded from the summary tab.

Nuxeo Platform Fast Track 7.1 also introduces an upgraded visual editor for workflow processes. The enhancements include a grid-based system, better auto-layout engine, and snappy grid underlying the designer. It also allows workflow designers position elements more easily.

Regarding the release, Eric Barroca, Nuxeo CEO, made these comments:

“We are pleased to release our first Fast Track of 2015 and the first of the 7.x series. This release includes enhancements to the platform to further support developers as they efficiently build and manage their applications. We are also laying the foundation for major innovations in upcoming Fast Track releases.”
