eZ Systems have released the latest (Enterprise) version of our favourite Content Management System (CMS) which powers so many of the websites we develop for our clients.
The announcement also includes the launch of the eZ Service Network (only available for the Enterprise Edition) and eZ Market, the online store for eZ Publish extensions.
The new software release of the scalable CMS includes a new REST API. This allows external applications to query eZ Publish content via the HTTP interface.
The other main feature launched is asynchronous publishing, a useful feature in enterprise environments with multiple editors which controls the the number of publishing requests. Other enhancements worth noting are an improved front-end editing, user registration approval workflow and the support for canonical link enhancing search engine compliance when content is duplicated on a site.

The island-of-art website has been completely re-engineered with eZ Publish.
The site allows artists to promote and sell their artworks online easily by uploading images and text to their own dedicated section. The site uses the Paypal service for credit card payments.
