Ingeniux has released its CMS 8, with such features as a new deployment server technology, improved mobile optimization and new ASP.NET developer capabilities.

The .NET-based Dynamic Site Server (DSS) has been completely revised in the new version. Enhancements include content delivery and rendering performance, and default support for ASP.NET MVC3, the new Razor view engine and ASPX templates.

Mobile Optimization

DSS also has a new authentication and authorization system, mobile device detection that uses the 51Degrees.mobi library and support for XSLT templates. The .mobi library contains display specs for thousands of mobile devices, which enables the DSS to automatically redirect page requests to device-optimized pages.

Version 8 also provides a preview of how pages will look on specific mobile devices, using a library of device skins. Within the mobile device preview, which includes iPhone, iPad, and Android products, users can change content inline and can switch between portrait and landscape modes.

Also new is SiteSync, a replication system that increases granular control and monitoring, provides support for a variety of replication methods, enables configuration of replication rules for a particular site or publishing target, and allows replication to be scheduled as an automated task.

Learning Opportunities

And a new Schema Designer, for creating and updating XML schemas, provides a drag-and-drop editor that allows schemas to be created without coding. The company said the new Designer simplifies the process of editing schemas, reviewing previous versions and syncing changes to existing content.

Web Experience Management

Ingeniux CMS is a web experience management system for sites. It offers web-based AJAX clients, in-context XML editing, integrated analytics, options for dynamic delivery and an App Store.

Founded in 1999 and based in Seattle, Ingeniux’s products provide management for websites, content and collaboration.

The company said its approach is different than other vendors, because it offers “a complete set of services that include quarterly site audits, on-call developer support, and community source website solutions like event calendars, newsletters, and slideshows.” Other services/products include SEO, analytics, site planning and development.
