A Preview of EPiServer CMS vNext
Tuesday, 09 August 2011
On Wednesday 14th September 2011 we will be holding a developer seminar where we will be showing some of the new features planned for EPiServer CMS vNext, or as we call it, Project Falcon.
Project Falcon has many planned features but we would like to show you, and very importantly, get feedback on, the following three:
Typed Page Data
Yes, this is the big one many of you have been waiting for and now it finally looks like it’s on it’s way. PageTypeBuilder has done a fantastic job plugging this hole but we thought it was about time we did it ourselves.
Better Module Management
It seems like there are a thousand ways to obtain and install modules on an EPiServer CMS site at the moment. In Project Falcon we are looking into a new system for packaging, installing and even un-installing modules which will hopefully become the de-facto standard.
New Localization Handling
There are currently several ways to work with localization across the EPiServer product range. Project Falcon plans to introduce a new unified system.
The seminar will be held on Wednesday 14th September from 17.30 at our head office in Stockholm. There are 30 places in the audience up for grabs which will be allocated based upon your EPiServer World Community Points ranking. Food and drink will be served.
Don’t worry if you can’t make it or don’t get a place, the event will also be broadcast live over Webex and I am hoping we can also record it for offline viewing.
If you’re interesting in attending then please send an email to Paul Smith stating your name and the EPiServer Partner you work for. The cut-off date for applications is 31st August 2011. After that date, emails will be sent out confirming place allocations.
Update: I don't need an email if you want to participate in the meeting over WebEx. Details of the WebEx event and how you can ask questions will be published on my blog a couple of days before the event.
