WoodWing (http://www.woodwing.com) has released its Enterprise 7
Publishing System. Unveiled and demonstrated during IFRA 2009,
Enterprise 7 comes with a variety of improvements for magazine,
newspaper, book and corporate publishers, says Hans Janssen, CEO of
WoodWing Software.

The Enterprise 7 publishing system is backed by new versions of
Content Station (WoodWing’s multichannel publishing tool for content
producers) and the Smart Connection plug-ins for Adobe InDesign and
InCopy. The focus of the version 7 release has been on new Search 2.0
functionality, refinement of cross-media and social media publishing,
as well as usability improvements and extended platform support.
“Content Station has been designed to play a pivotal role in the
publishing process,” says Erik Schut, President of WoodWing. “The
editorial staff, often burdened with assorted systems to get content
published to both print and online channels, will see Content Station
as a relief.

All relevant activities – planning, gathering, selecting and editing
content, as well as managing and publishing content to multiple
online and offline channels – are performed using Content Station
only. The revamped user-interface in version 7 makes that even easier
than before.”

Enterprise’s out-of-the-box integration with the Drupal open-source
Web CMS has been enhanced, and additional integrations have been
developed to make publishing to social media networks such as
Twitter, Facebook and Flickr easy and efficient, adds Schut. Users of
Content Station 7 now also have access to Search 2.0 options. When
running a search, results are classified for easy filtering.

The parallel workflow advantage is being supported by updated
versions of the SmartConnection Plug-ins, providing a streamlined
integration with Adobe InDesign and InCopy. Designers and editors
have direct access to content in the Enterprise repository from
within their trusted Adobe applications. Supported by workflow
options, users can work simultaneously on layout and text, and
communicate using sticky notes and comments. In the background,
Enterprise keeps track of versions and takes care of production

Enterprise7 supports all the latest platforms, including Mac OS X
10.6 (“Snow Leopard”), Windows Server 2008 and Windows 7 and Adobe
CS4. The memory footprint of Enterprise has been reduced and the
server performance has increased.
