Sense/Net 6.0 CMS Wants to Befriend Developers
Recently, open source Sense/Net 6.0 Content Management System has gotten an upgrade targeted towards making the system more developer-friendly.

If you’re a .NET developer wanting to get more love from Sense/Net 6.0, your time is now. Let’s check out the new WebDAV support and upgraded interface in Sense/Net 6.0 Beta2.

Last we've heard from this Hungarian CMS provider was when Sense/Net announced its support for CMIS. Now, the vendor is moving on from supporting the new industry standard to polishing its own product.

Sense/Net co-founder Tamas Biro explained: “We launched Sense/Net 6.0 to allowbusiness users to have more choice when it comes to content management -- and, inparticular, to be able to reap the benefits of open source without losing thereliability of more traditional platforms.”

Sense/Net 6.0 Beta2 Features

Sense/Net 6.0 Beta2 offers an upgraded interface with the latest version of ExtJS. Its content repository now has WebDAV support, so that all content can be opened from a file manager such as Windows Explorer. Additionally, office documents can be saved into the CMS, as if they were on a file system.

Furthermore, the document library portlet enables users to place document stores on portal pages and works with AJAX. This portlet makes it easy to build document-driven portals, from simple pressrooms or download sites to project intranets.

How to Get Sense/Net 6.0 Beta2

Sense/Net 6.0 Beta2 can be downloaded at http://www.sensenet.hu. If you consider the number of downloads to be a sign of popularity, Betas 1 and 2 have been downloaded more than 8,000 times since the launch of Sense/Net 6.0 in October 2008. That is not to mention that more than 600 beta testers have registered from over 50 countries worldwide.

Sense/Net is known as a “hybrid open source” provider combining open source technology with proprietary systems. Sense/Net is now planning Beta3, with a focus on documentation, stabilization, finalized APIs and collaborative functions.
