Magnolia CMS (news, site) is on a big journey, with the latest update showing off some pointers for the web authoring system's future direction.
Collaboration is the Name of the Game
The latest enterprise version of open source CMS Magnolia, released today, offers a decidedly cooperative flavor. New features include concurrent editing by multiple users, rapid comparison of page versions with highlights, assistance for translating content across global sites and multi-part forms, among other additions.
Multiple editors can work at the same time by monitoring the admin bar. Editors can work on different paragraphs within the page and can see when other users have finished their work, allowing them to move into the previously locked area of the page. Users can see who is working on the page to aid in collaborative efforts.
