Alkacon Software, maintainer of OpenCms, has joined the FCKeditor project as the Java Integration Manager. Those are great news for the OpenCms community, as this means future versions and features of FCKeditor will be even better integrated with OpenCms.
FCKeditor is the leading open source web based text editor, well known for its maturity, stability and rich feature set. With more then 1.5 million downloads already, FCKeditor is the editor component of choice for adding web based visible editing capabilities to web projects worldwide.
FCKeditor has been part of the OpenCms core since its version 6.2, released on March 2006.
OpenCms 10 from Alkacon brings a vastly improved user experience that combines the intuitive "Direct Edit" approach of OpenCms with a new, well integrated Launchpad app center. OpenCms 10 also ships with the new, responsive Apollo Template based on Bootstrap.
The Alkacon OpenCms Enterprise Extensions (also called OCEE) are a commercial extension for OpenCms. Alkacon OCEE adds features to OpenCms that are often required for running OpenCms in a medium or large Enterprise, where data consistency, security and failover are highly important.
