Tridion 2013

 I attend Tridion User Group Day at Redwood Shores, CA. Apparentlly Tridion 2013 is going to be announced in Q1 of 2013. 

A list of interesting features with this new release:

  • Bundle: You can now put component or page into a bundle. All the items in the bundle will exit the workflow either success or fail as a whole. This concept is simliar to the database transactions. It is beneficial when you have dependency among your pages/component, and you dont' want some of them to succeed and others to fail. 
  • Notification Center: They took the concept from iOS where the notification center has actionable items. You can directly invoke action from notification. 
  • Undo: It has the ablity to Undo the publication (once level).
  • External Content Libraries (ECL): It is possible to write a connector to use other repositories. A Flicker connector is demoed that it can mount your Flicker account to Tridion. Theoritically, it is possible to write a connect for anything if it has the concept of "folers" and "files".
