Open source enterprise content management provider Nuxeo is putting its latest round of funding to use.
Improvements and Bug Fixes
Just weeks after it received a US$ 3.8 million round of funding for expansion into the US, the Paris-based vendor has released a new version of Nuxeo Studio.
Nuxeo 2.14 considers users feedback more than simply adding new features and includes five evolutions/new features, 15 improvements and 19 bug fixes, the organization announced. Nuxeo Studio is an online customization environment that helps developers and architects build content-centric applications with the Nuxeo Platform, without writing a line of code, according to Jane Zupan, vice president of marketing at Nuxeo.
The latest version also includes:
- Tabs widget enabling users to display tabs anywhere
- Integration with Nuxeo Platform 5.7.3 in the areas of multi-task node, re-assignment support, new workflow events and new automation scripting objects
- Workflow transitions that include different colors for easier navigation
- Return of the “Select All” shortcut “CTRL+A / Cmd+A” on Chrome and Safari
Nuxeo's Fast Track Continues
With a total of nearly US$ 10 million in total funding coming Nuxeo's way, the vendor's release this week is a sure sign that its “fast track” plan of releases has lost no steam. Earlier, it said it plans to raise and invest more in consulting and support teams and expand its sales presence in North America.
Nuxeo 5.7.1 was released in June in its Fast Track release cycle (odd-numbered releases), complementing its Long Term Support releases (even-numbered releases). The v5.7.2 update came out in August, including video player upgrades and bulk tagging. The next step here would be a full release v5.8.
Where does Nuxeo see the industry heading?
When asked about trends, Jane Zupan, vice president of marketing at Nuxeo, told CMSWire this morning that Nuxeo is seeing requests for advanced workflow mechanisms, such as dynamic re-routing and parallel processing, to address the needs of adaptive case management applications.
Nuxeo Paris – What to Expect
With the convergence of Nuxeo executives next week at their Nuxeo World conference in Paris, we’re thinking we could see more version releases. And perhaps some expansion news.
Don’t forget -- last year, Nuxeo CEO Eric Barroca gave us plenty of insight into the company’s success in the US. He told us the number of users in the US has tripled since 2010. Around September of last year, the company had recorded a 40% increase in new accounts of Nuxeo Studio compared to the same period in 2011.
So stay tuned next week for news out of Paris from Nuxeo; we’re betting on details about expansion into the States.
