The new release – following the many that gone the same route – also offers some online marketing tools. The following capabilities are now available: brand management, campaign optimization and community-building.
Another new feature is an open source Application Development Framework (ADF) and some APIs to charm away developers.
A suite of free apps is available on the new community site and includes Article Editing, Blog, Calendar, Content Import, Facebook, Forum, Multimedia, Photo Gallery, Portal, Profile, and Navigation.
The new community site is called ‘The Commons’ and is intended for customers and partners to allow them to collaborate and share knowledge, expertise and open source code developed by PaperThin and its community. Who said community was less important than the CMS?
