New eZ Publish releases include PHP 5 support and the eZ Find search engine extension

(PresseBox) (Dortmund, ) eZ Systems is aggressively expanding and enhancing its flagship product, eZ Publish, with a new extension, enhanced features and compatibility with PHP 5 - while maintaining a smooth upgrade path for existing eZ Publish sites.

eZ Systems has released an alpha version of eZ Publish 4.0 (which runs on PHP 5), as well as the stable releases of eZ Publish version 3.10 and the new eZ Find search engine (version 1.0).

eZ Publish 4.0 marks the start of the next generation of eZ Publish and offers various enhancements, including some performance gains over the 3.x series.

"Users have enjoyed and relied upon the features and robustness of eZ Publish for many years," says CEO Aleksander Farstad. "By making eZ Publish compatible with PHP 5, we are leveraging the advantages provided by the current PHP platform."

eZ Publish 4.0 paves the way for integration of eZ Components, eZ's PHP enterprise components library.

Subsequent releases in the 4.x series will gradually embrace more of the eZ Components’ power, stability and functionality.

Feature highlights in these new eZ Publish releases include improved clustering performance, multilingual URL support, and enhanced ISBN and multioption datatypes.

eZ Find, a new extension for eZ Publish 3.x and 4.x, enhances the search functionality on eZ Publish sites and includes features such as relevance ranking, native support for eZ Publish access rights, keyword highlighting and the ability to search sites containing millions of objects.
