Bitrix, a provider of business communications solutions, announced the release of Bitrix Site Manager 10.0 that features “10 new weapons in the Web and mobile-development arsenal,” among other enhancements.
An important tool in the arsenal is BitrixMobile that allows for development of mobile sites and apps with support of iOS, Android and BlackBerry (News - Alert) OS on the basis of HTML5. Some of the other tools include a ready-made mobile Internet shop, Web clusters, social media integration, sticky Web-it notes, instant search and support of SKU in the e-commerce module.
Bitrix Site Manager 10.0 also features rating and influence systems in the social networking module, a ready-made InfoPortal for municipalities and media outlets, and a "Live session" feature.
In addition to the 10 tools, the Bitrix Site Manager 10.0 also includes significant changes in the licensing policies of the product and a brand new module for senior editions. It has upgraded the photo galleries and blogs. Blogs are now provided with visual message editor with BBCode support.
Bitrix Site Manager 10.0 is available in different editions. The Professional edition costs $1,499. It features the social networking module as well as InfoPortal site solution, which is an excellent platform for municipalities, local governments, and media outlets.
The Enterprise version now comes with the Business process designer module that allows highly customized workflows to be created in a visual environment. Such workflows can be used in order processing, publishing, or other processes which connect resources and users of the site.
Current users of the Premium and Ultimate editions of Bitrix Site Manager will get the benefit of Web cluster capabilities offered through the Bitrix newest module at no extra cost. Installing this new module will not threaten existing data.
Bitrix Site Manager users with current subscriptions to updates and technical support can implement the appropriate changes in their products using the SiteUpdate feature in the Control Panel.
Earlier in February, Bitrix said the latest independent performance testing of Bitrix Site Manager revealed it is capable of managing up to 85 million requests per day for websites running on modest hardware, while maintaining acceptable response time and fault-tolerance.
