By CIOReview | Friday, March 27, 2015

NEW YORK, NY: Nuxeo, a content management platform enabling the software defined enterprise to build powerful applications has unveiled its Nuxeo Platform Fast Track 7.2 with enhanced features, reports PRWEB.

Some of the features are Server-Side Automation Scripting, new developer capabilities, and a release of Nuxeo Drive. Other features include:

Server-Side Scripting for the Automation Service:  Nuxeo Platform 7.2 introduces Automation Scripting. The Automation Service is a high-level, extensible, command-oriented API for the platform, allowing creating business logic by assembling reusable logic blocks.

Workflow REST API: A new endpoint in the REST API enables easy and natural interaction with processes, including process start, task management, instance listing, and task dashboards. Developers can now connect third party applications to Nuxeo Workflow or develop new user interfaces and applications faster, in the same way they access and interact with content.

Improved Data and Field Validation: Forms can now validate user entry based on advanced schema-defined rules and display a customizable message to the user.

Enhanced Media Renditions: All videos and picture conversions are now exposed as renditions in the Nuxeo Platform. Thanks to this, all are available through APIs in the same unified way and it’s now possible to control rendition link visibility and generation trigger.

Bulk Generation of Renditions: A new menu entry has been added in the admin center that allows re-computation of all existing renditions based on a query. This is particularly useful when new conversions are added or changed at low level and you want to apply them over your existing assets.

Pluggable Marshalling: The Nuxeo Platform now uses a central entity marshalling service which makes it possible to add new marshallers. This enables developers to take over part of the complete marshalling step and change the way entities are represented as JSON either to accept new formats, or to output different formats depending upon use case or application.

Better Desktop Sync with Nuxeo Drive 2.0: There has been a major refactoring of the Nuxeo Drive product that includes a new user interface, multi-repository support, and massive performance enhancements. Drive can also now handle more files. Long operations can now be interrupted and resumed.
