Subject [ANN] Daisy 1.3 released
Date Mon, 22 Aug 2005 14:22:28 GMT
Hi all,

We are happy to announce the next release of Daisy, the Open Source  
CMS/Wiki framework.

Daisy 1.3 has been in development for 6 months, and packs many new  
features while providing a wealth of improvements to ensure easier  
implementation and integration. Daisy 1.3 has been reviewed favorably  
("Very Good") in Infoworld's IT Product Guide  

Notable new features in this release are:

* the introduction of document variants, to support different document  
branches and multi-linguality
* document tasks for the automation of batched document operations
* easier installation with more defaults and less configuration work
* scriptability using JavaScript (based on Rhino)
* support for multiple authentication schemes (ships with LDAP and NTLM  
* multi-value fields for management of keyword-like metadata fields  
* a faceted navigation browser for metadata-based exploration of large  
document sets
* improved role management providing "group"-based access control  
* a totally revamped and vastly improved skinning and publishing  
mechanism, allowing easier creation of custom look-and-feels, and  
easier implementation of custom Daisy-based applications
* preliminary RSS feed support

Daisy 1.3 is available - free of charge and liberally licensed - from

Furthermore, Outerthought will be expanding its range of services  
around Daisy in the near future: managed Daisy Hosting, and  
fixed-price, turn-key Daisy-based CMS and knowledge management  
projects. Keep an eye on our corporate website for news updates:
