Woodwing Software, Zaandam, the Netherlands, released version 4.2 of the Smart Connection Enterprise editorial solution, with features such as editioning and advanced deadline management.
Editioning eases creation and management of multi-edition publications, allowing a user to mix and match single-edition pages, multi-edition pages and on-page edition variations. Advanced deadline management allows deadlines to be set individually for each issue, section, status and even individual files if needed, automatically taking holidays and non-working days into account.
A new sticky notes feature, available from within InCopy or from a Web browser, promotes efficient collaboration.
Using AJAX technology, the enhanced Web Editor’s WYSIWYG previews and fitting information are updated in the background.
Other version 4.2 features include LDAP (Active/Open Directory) integration to ensure single-user definitions and group assignments through the organization’s global directory; Access Profiles for easier, more flexible setup of access rights; individual application features (such as access-controlled application of text formatting and thumbnail viewing); enhanced query capabilities; optimized 3D search technology; hierarchical queries; full audit trailing; and configurable password rules and expiration.
