WoodWing Software (http://www.woodwing.com) has
released Enterprise 6.3 , the latest version of
the company’s flagship content publishing
platform. The new versioin offers several new
features, taking the integration with the
customers software environment one step further.
Users can simply double-click on files of any
type in Content Station to directly open them in
their source application. After editing and
closing the files, they will be checked in again
in Content Station. This feature allows users to
make Content Station their primary tool for
research and production of content. This
functionality will be used heavily for Adobe
Creative Suite, Microsoft Office, Apple Keynote
and video files, among others.
Content Station is equipped with a new Quick Look
feature that allows the user to preview files in
a pop-up window when pressing the spacebar — a
method to evaluate images and videos. Other
° Improved screen layout and numerous other user
interface improvements; ° Publication overview
° Automatic installation of application updates; ° Extended video support.
Content Station allows users to efficiently
create articles for delivery to the web, print,
and mobile devices, and offers out-of-the-box
integration with the open-source web content
management system Drupal.
Content Station works with Enterprise’s new
server plug-ins to allow users to search, select,
and retrieve content stored in other third-party
repositories such as digital asset management
systems, archives, and wire systems. Video,
audio, and text files can then be collected into
“dossiers,” edited, and set for delivery to a
variety of outputs, all from a single
user-interface. A built-in XML editor lets
authors create documents intended solely for
digital output. The content planning application
lets managers assign content to users both inside
and outside of the office.
Enterprise’s Web publishing capabilities feature
a direct integration with Drupal, the open-source
Web content management system. Content authors
click on a single button to preview or deliver
content directly to Drupal and get information
such as page views, ratings, and comments back
from the Web CMS. And if something needs to be
pulled from the site, editors can simply click
“Unpublish.” They don’t have to contact a
separate web editor or navigate through another
system’s interface. The server plug-in
architecture also allows for any other Web
content management system to be easily connected,
according to Erik Schut, president of WoodWing.
Content Station 6.3 is available in an Adobe AIR
version as well as a Flash-based Web version
supporting the major Web browsers for Mac and PC.
