AJAX-enabled user interface
New user interface of the Control Panel now takes advantage of the modern AJAX technology, which allowed to greatly improve its response and usability. New interface facilitates project deployment, helps reduce staff education costs, avoid routine and do everyday tasks more quickly.
Version 5.1 offers a new tabbed Control Panel with the three modes: "Public section" to view the site as-is; "Edit site" in which system control areas are highlighted and powered with management tools; and the common "Control Panel". The new interface provides for fast switching between the three modes. For convenience, the tab bar can be pinned on top of the browser window.
The e-Store of Bitrix Site Manager 5.1 now implements support for fully functional affiliate networks. Affiliates can benefit from brought clients; the commission can derive from the number of products sold or the whole amount of affiliate orders.

The wide range of Bitrix Site Manager modules is now even more powerful! The new version is now equipped with the Blogs module to keep on-line diaries, and the e-Learning module allowing to create training courses and examination tests.
Forums now feature sending private messages to registered forum users, viewing and deleting private messages. What is most exciting, the Forum module can now filter and delete obscene phrases.
All product editions now can import and export data from/to information blocks in the CSV format (e.g. for communication with MS Excel). The Small Business edition now contains the Forum and Newsletter modules. The Professional and Enterprise editions now include the Blogs and e-Learning modules. Additionally, the Enterprise edition is empowered with the AD/LDAP module.
