paperthin.jpg PaperThin has announced the release of CommonSpot Version 5.0, the latest upgrade to the company’s flagship Web CMS. The release introduces a new authoring interface that includes RSS feeds, blogs, wikis, XML publishing and rendering capabilities. Somebody at PaperThin must have gotten the memo that simpler is better. Business users can make themselves heard by delivering content to any news reader, email program or Web browser as an RSS, Atom, or Podcast feed without writing code. Not a company to let new trends go by without taking a piece of the action, PaperThin has included the ability to let users create live bookmarks on a page so visitors can subscribe to feeds of interest through CommonSpot’s Feed Index Element. The listing is automatically generated, displayed, and updated based on filtered metadata criteria. PaperThin has also availed four new open source applications to its users: a Blog, Wiki, RSS Reader and multi-view Events Calendar, each built using the Custom Application Development Framework. The browser-based rich text editor includes enhanced editing features, wide browser and platform compatibility, improved standards-based support, and toolbars reminiscent of Microsoft Word. New image editing functionality lets users edit and manage digital assets like images, photos, and other graphics directly within the system. Other features include: * A new and improved rich text editor * Browser-based image editing * Out-of-the-box support for RSS, Atom and podcasting feeds PaperThin, listed on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 50 Program as one of the 50 fastest growing technology companies in the area, is running strong with this potent new release.
