Alfresco announce the availability of the Alfresco Web Content Management Preview release. Hat tip to MarketWire. Here is the PRESS RELEASE Alfresco Launches Enterprise Class Open Source Web Content Management.
The Alfresco Web Content Management Preview release is an advanced WCM platform that includes features such as:
- Virtualization Server
- Multi-Site Transactional Publishing
- Web Content Compliance Server
- 100% Standards Based
- Highly Scalable Platform
End user features include:
- Standards-Based Forms to Create Pages – Chiba XForms
- Simple Multi-Channel XML Publishing
- Email-Based Production Workflow
- In-Context Review
- Integrated Support for Content Managers, Contributors, Reviewers, Web Designers and Application Developers in one repository
- Parallel Branching and Merging

The Alfresco folks have been really busy over the last few months. The fact that they are releasing this many products, this fast, is very impressive. I will try to carve out some time over the next two weeks to take a look at both the WCM and 1.4 preview releases.
I think Alfresco will become viewed as a credible alternative to the traditional ECM solutions like IBM, Oracle, Microsoft, and the few remaining players.
