Also, non-developers will benefit from the ability to easily package content for migration and staging for other MindTouch sites and end users.
San DIEGO, CA (PRWEB) July 22, 2009
MindTouch (http://www.mindtouch.com) today announced a trio of powerful new features for its popular MindTouch 2009 platform. The features are available today in MindTouch 2009 and include the ability to add collaborative video to MindTouch sites, package applications built in MindTouch for distribution, and stage content for greater collaboration and control.
The new release of MindTouch 2009 reinforces the company's push to help developers build collaborative networks (http://ostatic.com/blog/the-future-o...ative-networks). With roots in the traditional wiki market, MindTouch has quickly evolved into a powerful development platform for companies such as Microsoft, Intel, EMC, The Washington Post and Mozilla to build collaborative applications and networks.
"With this release the thousands of developers building collaborative networking applications, enterprise dashboards and composite applications on the MindTouch platform will now be able to easily package and share their applications and mashups," said Aaron Fulkerson (http://twitter.com/roebot), CEO, MindTouch. "Also, non-developers will benefit from the ability to easily package content for migration and staging for other MindTouch sites and end users."
The company's new application packaging feature allows developers to create a compressed file for import into other MindTouch instances, which effectively allows enterprise users to install add-on applications as easily as they do add-ons in Firefox.
To add collaborative video capabilities to MindTouch 2009, the company partnered with Kaltura (http://www.kaltura.com), developer of the world's first open source online video platform. The integration with Kaltura gives MindTouch users the built-in ability to collaborate, edit, publish and syndicate video directly within MindTouch. End users can record video and have multiple parties edit while retaining a complete version history -- all within a MindTouch page.
MindTouch Inc. is changing the way businesses share information, consume content, and collaborate. The company's open source platform, MindTouch 2009, combines the ease of use of a wiki with the scalability, security and integration capabilities of an enterprise portal, connecting enterprise systems, databases, web services, and Web 2.0 apps to create collaborative networks.
