Magnolia Version 3.6 ten times faster and includes new enterprise features

(PresseBox) (Basel, Switzerland and New York, NY, USA, ) Magnolia International Limited has today announced the immediate availability of Magnolia 3.6, a new release of its simple to use Open Source content management system. The new version is up to ten times faster and includes enterprise grade features for dramatically improved back-up, caching and publishing of content items across multiple Magnolia sites.

Performance enhancements have been focused on improving the system for end-users, making Magnolia 3.6 ten times faster when importing and activating content, formatting and creating paragraphs, managing revision and more.

The new caching system in this latest release offers incredibly refined, granular control of caching and cache clearing (flushing). This enables administrators to create customized, strategic caching solutions which are optimized to meet the load patterns of a specific website and to ensure high availability of every single content element.

Magnolia 3.6 also offers an updated staging mechanism that ensures continuity of content in larger, multi-site implementations. The Transactional Activation Functionality guarantees a successful transfer of content items or changes authored in one Magnolia site (usually a staging or authoring site) and then published to multiple public Magnolia sites or 'subscribers'. This ensures that content items and changes created on the authoring server reach all remote Magnolia sites. Alternatively, if there is a technical problem in publishing to one of the subscribers, the content is not published by any subscriber until the issue has been resolved. This removes the common problem in many multi-site CMS setups, where intermittent technical or network errors during the publishing process can, over time, cause subscriber sites to get out of sync in their display of what should be identical content.

Backup has also been refined in this latest version of Magnolia, allowing administrators to roll-back through previous edits of a content item. This new backup feature offers a particularly helpful tool for corporate users looking to migrate sites from one Magnolia instance to another.

"Our latest release, Magnolia 3.6, eases maintenance, boosts performance and strengthens the robustness of our open source CMS in production environments", says Magnolia CTO Boris Kraft. "All the new enhancements are the results of individual solutions we already implemented for our enterprise customers. Hence, they are of proven quality and provide a mature basis for mission-critical enterprise websites."
