Enfold Desktop 4.5 public beta

Enfold Systems today made the first public beta release of Enfold Desktop 4.5. This release includes significant stability and peformance fixes along with 32 and 64 bit Vista support.

Caution: Beta software is for testing and review only and should not be used on mission-critical sites.

Enfold Desktop 4.5 Beta  is for users who want to review new features, test with existing Plone sites and alert Enfold about any critical, must-fix issues. New features in Enfold Desktop 4.5 include:

    • Full Windows Vista support for 32 bit and 64 bit machines.
    • Works with Plone 3.x and supports several key Plone 3.x features:
      • Versioning. Each time you check in a new version with Enfold Desktop, it will appear on the history tab for the web page in the browser. That means you can roll back changes to previous versions, regardless of whether the page was edited inside a web browser or Enfold Desktop. (more about versioning)
      • Enfold Desktop now correctly detects and warns about a 'Link Integrity Breach' (new in Plone 3.x) whenever you try to delete a file or page being linked to by another page. A new dialog identifies which pages will be adversely affected by the deletion and lets you proceed with the deletion or to cancel it altogether. (more about link integrity)
      • Content rules (a new Plone 3.x feature) now works correctly in Enfold Desktop.
    • Plone Administrators are now able to hide certain content types from Enfold Desktop. This can be especially useful when a content type is not WebDAV-enabled (and thus cannot be edited by Enfold Desktop). For example, This feature (called Blacklist Types) can be accessed from Plone Site Setup--> Add-on Product Configuration (on the same page)--> Enfold Desktop
