Ephox Unveils New EditLive! Content Authoring Software at Lotusphere 2010

Company's Rich Text Editor Enhances Usability for IBM Lotus Web Content Management Software Customers

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - January 18, 2010) - LOTUSPHERE -- Ephox, a leading provider of online authoring software, today announced the latest version of the company's rich text editor, EditLive! V7. Tightly integrated with IBM Lotus Web Content Management and IBM Lotus Quickr software, EditLive! allows business users to create content in a straightforward desktop word processing environment. With numerous new features that increase user productivity, team collaboration and web site quality, EditLive! V7 lets non-technical users keep company web sites, blogs and wikis up-to-date with relevant online content.

EditLive! V7 is now the only web-based editor to support Autosave. This functionality will preserve content, even if the web browser crashes, or the server session times out. V7 also includes templating functionality, giving content administrators the ability to create reusable content templates for consistent web site styles and standards that can be employed by business users.

The HTML editor also improves collaboration for online documents with new context-based commenting capabilities, in which users can comment directly on any text or object in a document and track conversations related to specific comments. For increased quality of content in web sites and wikis, EditLive! adds broken hyperlink reporting.

The new version of EditLive! includes enhanced integration with IBM Lotus Web Content Management and now deploys as an application in the portal environment. In addition, significant performance improvements of up to 70% have been achieved through a series of optimizations to caching, configuration and compression mechanisms.

"Ephox's EditLive! helps IBM Lotus Web Content Management customers to enable business users -- the subject matter experts -- to create and deploy rich content," said Andrew Roberts, CEO of Ephox. "EditLive! V7 offers a wealth of new features."

The City of Helsinki uses EditLive! and IBM Lotus Web Content Management to manage a portal of over 50,000 pages of web content. The portal offers essential services to the community, and provides information on the City's administration including budget reports, school and library information, and health and social services. "The EditLive! System is very easy to use and provides our web content editors with a stable and consistent experience," said Leila Oravisto, City of Helsinki web services coordinator. "This means we can easily share content between our web content masters, while non-technical users can easily learn the system and update their own content."

In addition to new functionality in EditLive!, the OEM version now includes several features that were previously only available in the Enterprise Edition. These capabilities include Auto-Correct for automatically correcting spelling errors, the ability to import Word documents, and Thesaurus.


EditLive! 7 is available immediately in OEM, Professional and Enterprise Editions. For a demo of EditLive, please visit
