Release Notes for 1.2

It has been a long one, but we hope that in the end, you will find it worth the wait.

With more than 500 work items resolved, Smartsite iXperion 1.2 is a major update.

System and Database Support

Smartsite iXperion 1.2 officially supports Windows 7 (32-bit). Also, full Oracle support is built in, as is generic LDAP-support (such as Novell e-Directory).

New features

Key new features of this new release are Oracle support, Personalization framework and Global Dynamic Storage, but a lot of work has been done in a number of areas, including Security, Scf and Smartlet architecture, Web Toolkit, AIM, the SXML language and many, many others.

New addon modules
