Nuxeo Studio 2.0 available

| Comments

We have made available earlier this week version 2.0 of Nuxeo Studio, the configuration and customization environment for content applications based on the open source Nuxeo EP platform.

Here is the announcement

Nuxeo Studio 2.0 brings new important features, such as content views (which were introduced in Nuxeo EP 5.4 last november) configuration, widget configuration, user groups management, content transformation, as well as usability improvement thanks to the feedback of our users.

Two new releases this week, one more coming up next week

| Comments

There's nothing I like more in this business that a successful software or customer project launch.

So I'm specially happy this week, because we've had not one, but two important software releases, one of them being an new product launch, and we have another release coming up next week.

Nuxeo EP and DM 5.3.2

The first one was Nuxeo EP / DM 5.3.2, launched two days ago, a minor but rock solid release that closes more that 300 issues, and paves the way for a successful and feature-full 5.4 release planned for around October.

Still, it has some cool new features:

If you're curious about Nuxeo DM (specially Nuxeo DM 5.3), check out this episode of Nuxeo TV:

Nuxeo Correspondence 1.0

The second one is Nuxeo Correspondence Management (also called "Nuxeo Courrier" in French).

This is one of the first examples of an open source vertical application (which targets both public administrations and regulated industries).

Are you interested? You can read the product description, download the product to try it on your own (and by "the product" and "trying", I mean the full, supported, product, not a crippled down version that stops working after 30 days or doesn't contain the "enterprise" features or support without which nobody would dare put the software in production in a mission-critical context).

You may also want to take a look at Cheryl's blog post "Keeping Communication Open between Citizen and Government" that stresses the importance of Correspondence Management in the public sector.

Also, if you're curious about the source code, or if you want to help with development, localization, etc.: it's available in our mercurial repository here.

Many thanks to everyone who worked on this release (Alexandre Russel, Mariana Cedica, Laurent Doguin, Anahide Tchertchian, Lise Kemen, Solen Guitter).

Nuxeo Correspondence Management is based on Nuxeo Case Management Framework, and if you don't know what it is, you may want to check this episode of Nuxeo TV:

Nuxeo DAM 1.1

We have a new Nuxeo DAM release scheduled for next week, based on the robust Nuxeo EP 5.3.2.

Upcoming Release

| Comments

We’re still working very hard on the 5.2 M4, which has been delayed one more week and should be ready by the end of this week.

Here are a few technical highlights of what’s coming soon:

  • The SQL repository will become the default repository in 5.2 (JCR storage will still be supported).

  • Workflow refactoring: the workflow API and implementation is being simplified, to be easier to use for developers.

  • Events refactoring: the event API and implementation is being simplified, to be easier to use for developers.

  • WebEngine: some refactoring to make it easier to use for developers (see a pattern here ;) ? ) Another huge improvement is that it is now possible to write the interaction classes in Java and have them hot-releaded by the server, increasing developers agility and pleasure.

  • Search refactoring: the Core is now responsible for search, the API has been simplified, Compass is gone.

  • A new “Converter” API that replaces the existing “Transformer” API, for content transformation.

  • GWT support.

  • Lots of other improvements, and new features, that will be presented in more details in the release notes.

More info about our plans for Nuxeo 5.2 in the slides and videos collections from the Nuxeo DevDay last December: http://www.nuxeo.com/en/events/slides-videos-devday/#whatsnew

First Release of Nuxeo WebEngine

| Comments

WebEngine is a lightweight, versatile, content-centric, open source web framework to quickly build and deliver next generation content-oriented web applications.

WebEngine relies on the Nuxeo content infrastructure (OSGi runtime, component architecture, document repository, ECM services, etc.) to provide a component-based programing model and a web development model for building componentized content-centric applications (such as wikis, blogs, content-oriented websites, etc.).

WebEngine relies heavily on the REST paradigm: URLs are mapped to the hierarchical content repository, content is accessed using GETs, user actions are GETs and POSTs, etc. Hence it’s very easy and straightforward to write RESTful apps using WebEngine.

WebEngine is fully extensible and componentized, thanks to OSGi (all components are OSGi bundles) and Nuxeo Runtime’s extension points.

WebEngine can run either standalone (with startup time <4s) using the Nuxeo Runtime launcher and the embedded Jetty 6, or in a full-blown Java EE app server such as JBoss. WebEngine can also be connected to any Nuxeo EP instance (and Nuxeo Core repository) and be used to expose / publish its content to the web.

Features highlights

  • Scripting (Groovy, JavaScript, Ruby, Python…) or Java code for business logic

  • Advanced content model

  • Leverage Nuxeo Platform’s ECM services

  • Smart URLs management

  • Powerful templating (based on the FreeMarker engine)

  • Wikitext renderer (using Wikimodel)

  • Open source under the LGPL license

Nuxeo EP 5.1.3.2 released

| Comments

We have released Nuxeo EP 5.1.3.2 earlier this week. This is a maintenance release primarily focussed on bug fixes and small improvements.

You can download it as

or:

The changelog for this release is available.

Minor, but anyway noteworthy improvements include:

  • Nuxeo EP now works on a Java 6 JVM, which can lead to significant performance improvements (up to 100% for certain workloads, according to some internal benchmarks).

  • Full text indexing has been improved and made faster.

  • Some tweaks have been done to enable communication with the new (soon to be released and announced) “LiveEdit” plugin for Internet Explorer, Firefox and MS-Word.

Nuxeo 5.1 RC released - GA release scheduled for next week

| Comments

We have been so busy the last couple of months working on customers projects that the 5.1 release has slipped a bit, but I’m happy to report that we have just released Nuxeo 5.1 RC.

The final release (Nuxeo 5.1.0.GA) will be made next week, and then we’ll spend the rest of August:

  • finishing and polishing the Nuxeo Book.

  • planning and starting the next iteration of Nuxeo (5.2, cf. the current roadmap).

  • Working on new customers projects (including some that feature the Apogee Project which has already seen a recent surge of activity).

  • getting some holidays :)
