PRESS RELEASE: Cumulus 7.1 Caps a Summer of Successful Product Launches for Canto
Cumulus 7.1 offers significant improvements and new features to the Cumulus 7.0 product line.
BERLIN, Germany, 17 Oct. 2006 -- Cumulus 7.1, the latest version of Canto's award-winning Digital Asset Management software, is available for immediate download, Canto announced today.
Cumulus 7.1 brings product fixes and updates across the entire product line. Cumulus users can now personalize Native Client workspace layouts to better suit specific tasks. Users of the Web Access Clients will benefit from powerful asset relationship management options previously available only in the Native Client. All users will benefit from tighter feature parity between the two clients.
Workflows benefit from enhanced client/manager approval options. Users can set up trigger notifications that automatically email clients when files are ready for review. In addition, Web-direct asset links can be copied from within the Native and Web Access Clients for easy pasting into email and other applications. When the recipient clicks the link, the asset is presented for download via the user's preferred Web browser.
Improvements to the Cumulus Native Client include a category pane that can be split to additionally show the selected asset's thumbnail, preview, metadata and a calendar. Calendar dates are links that find and display assets cataloged or modified on the date clicked. Once a collection window layout has been configured with the panes and views a user prefers for certain tasks, the setup can be saved for easy recall.
The Cumulus Web Access Clients have been updated to support split view and asset relations options first introduced in the Cumulus 7 Native Client. Performance is outstanding, even on slower Internet connections, making the Web Access Clients--more than ever--the ideal choice for remote users.
On the back end, the Cumulus Server can now be mirrored to another Cumulus Server for backup and Web Access Client load balancing. In addition, user-created sets can now be exported and imported.
The initial release of Canto's Brand Management solution, BrandAssistant, due Q4 2006, will be based on Cumulus 7.1, extending all benefits of the update to users of that solution too.
The Cumulus 7.1 upgrade is available free of charge to Cumulus Workgroup and Cumulus Enterprise customers on Software Maintenance (SM) subscriptions. Customers can download the upgrade from Canto's website.
