OpenCms 7.0.5 Distribution

With OpenCms 7.0.5, a number of issues and security problems that persisted in the 7.0.4 release have been fixed. Some new features have been added as well.

OpenCms 7 is a major upgrade, and it vastly expands the features of OpenCms 6.

New features in OpenCms version 7:

  • Support for Oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL, MS SQL Server, DB2, AS400 and HSQL databases included
  • The link management has been greatly improved with the new "Content Relationship Engine" (CRE)
  • Native support for WebDAV access to the OpenCms VFS
  • Publishing of resources is now done using a queue, so a user can continue to work after publishing has started
  • The concept of "Organization Units" (OUs) has been added to the internal user management
  • System permissions are now based on a complete new set of "Roles"
  • Many usability improvements for the OpenCms Workplace have been made
  • JSP 2.0 and Servlet 2.4 are now used by default
  • ... and much more

Who should use this OpenCms 7.0.5 distribution download?
