Open source CMS company Jahia has unveiled the commercial release of its Jahia 6.5 CMS. The company is hoping to differentiate the new product on the basis of its ability to bridge web, portal, social, search, mobile user experience, and content management with a single composite platform.
Jahia 6.5 combines the modular ease of PHP on top of the latest powerful Java frameworks to give developers the chance to build user-centric, content-rich applications combining any type of enterprise and web content.
- Jahia Studio for fine-grained template customization and drag-and-drop website assembly using ready-made components.
- JahiaApps Forge — a community-based marketplace of ready-made templates and application modules.
- Choice of a wide variety of scripting languages, including PHP and jsp.
- HTML5 delivery of multimedia and graphical content, without the need for proprietary plugins and APIs.
"Jahia 6.5 makes module creation easier than ever before — more like a PHP solution such as Drupal — which is unheard of among Java platforms," said Emmanuel Garcin, VP of Jahia Solutions Group. "Our new release supports the smooth delivery of data from any source, and our new Jahia Studio enables users to compose composite content applications with zero coding."
