Apparently, there was a little mishap in the Web CMS vendor Ektron’s scheduled publishing activities.
The new major v8.0 release of CMS400.NET (that wasn’t supposed to see the light of day for at least another week or so) surfaced in production, online, for all to see in its full video-and-all glory on this microsite. Should it no longer be available when you read this, there are some screenshots below.
Ektron’s preceding version was 7.6.
Ektron seems to be prematurely (?) reporting that version 8 of its CMS product includes such new and/or improved features as:
- New GUI for workarea
- New features for activity streams and micromessaging
- Multivariate Testing capabilities
- Calendaring integration
- PageBuilder enhancements
- eCommerce engine improvements
Without much detail into what each new feature entails, it doesn’t look like the landing page was quite ready to be workflow-approved and pushed into production. Oops.
