DotNetNuke releases a new enterprise-focused version of its flagship product, the DotNetNuke Enterprise Edition.
DotNetNuke has announced the release of a
new enterprise-focused version of its flagship product, the DotNetNuke
primarily for its Web Content Management System (CMS)
platforms for Microsoft .NET, the company's
new Enterprise Edition includes a new DotNetNuke Content Staging feature that
enables users to edit and approve content on a staging server prior to pushing
the site to production.
Staging allows users to create a separate staging server where all intended
production Website changes can be implemented and tested before being published
to the production server. Ideal for organizations with many content
contributors and tight restrictions on Website content publishing and review,
the highly advanced system compares the staging server configuration to the
production server to identify missing components and provides a detailed view
of all planned changes.
addition, the DotNetNuke Web CMS includes a
new Content Localization feature that enables easy management of multilanguage Websites.
The Content Localization feature is included in all editions of the platform,
including the Enterprise,
Professional and Community Editions. The Content Localization capability helps
users manage translated versions of all or some of their Web pages. Ideal for
multilanguage Websites, the feature includes management and
configuration-mapping tools to keep translated pages synchronized across a Website.
new DotNetNuke Enterprise Edition includes Content Staging, which allows
organizations to edit and approve Website changes on a staging server prior to
publishing to production," said Navin Nagiah, CEO
of DotNetNuke. "Content Staging meets the requirements of our midsized and
large customers who have formalized rules, guidelines and policies around
publishing content. We also added a new Content Localization feature to the
DotNetNuke core. The availability of Content Localization in our Community
Edition demonstrates our continued commitment to the open-core model and to the
community at large. Content Localization will benefit our users who build,
deploy and maintain multilanguage Websites."
features include an audit tool that creates a record of all publishing events;
a "white list" where users can define which modules should push both
their settings and content during publishing and which should push only the
module settings; and a simple, secure publishing function that allows users to
easily push their site from staging to production.

Elite Edition of its solution, which will now comprise the Professional Edition
plus Elite Support. The new Elite Support option-available for the Professional
and Enterprise Editions-features extended support hours, faster guaranteed
support, priority management of support tickets, installation upgrade
assistance, and source code access to the proprietary Professional or Enterprise
