PaperThin Introduces CommonSpot Version 5.0

PaperThin, Inc. (, a mid-market content management software vendor, announced the release of CommonSpot Version 5.0. It features a new, intuitive authoring interface, RSS feeds, blogs and wikis, and XML publishing and rendering capabilities. The ease-of-use inherent in CommonSpot 5.0 is designed to empower business users to be self-sufficient and productive, to build interactive communities, and to achieve faster time-to-market. It also allows IT and site administrators to easily adapt the system to meet their complex needs.

Business users can now easily get their message out by delivering content to any news reader, Web browser, or email program in one simple step as an RSS, Atom, or Podcast feed—without writing any code. Users can also easily create live bookmarks on a page so visitors can subscribe to feeds of interest through CommonSpot's Feed Index Element.

CommonSpot 5.0 is completely customizable and configurable, giving developers and site administrators the flexibility needed to define ease-of-use for their organization. Significant enhancements in XML rendering and XSL style sheets make it simple to manage the formatting and display of content. The import/export module makes it simple to develop and extend CommonSpot applications and modules such as custom content objects, custom field types, metadata forms, and field masks. Administrators can share applications between sites and carry over custom-developed code and applications.

CommonSpot's improved authoring interface provides intuitive, in-context editing; quick access to toolbars, menus, and other common functions; and simple rollover and Windows-style menus for maximum ease-of-use. New image editing functionality allows users to easily edit and manage digital assets, such as images, photos, and other graphics, directly within the system.
