MCLEAN, VIRGINIA, UNITED STATES, July 11, 2023/ -- CrafterCMS, the leading open-source headless CMS for enterprises, announced the general availability release of its version 4.1. The new release includes three major new capabilities: 1) a brand new content authoring Dashboard, 2) an improved Sidebar in the content authoring experience, and 3) a switch to OpenSearch as the embedded search engine both for the content authoring experience, and for building personalized digital experiences and other search-driven content applications via the CrafterCMS Search APIs. OpenSearch replaces Elasticsearch as the built-in search engine for CrafterCMS going forward. In addition, numerous additional improvements and bugs fixes were incorporated into this v4.1 release.

“We continue to improve the content authoring experience that enables content teams to easily compose any type of digital experience,” said Russ Danner, VP of Products for CrafterCMS. “Through drag and drop experience building, in-context content creation and editing, and low-code/no-code reusable plug-ins in our CrafterCMS Marketplace, enterprises can rapidly compose digital experience applications faster than ever before. Our new Dashboard and improved Sidebar will drive additional productivity improvements for our enterprise customers and open source community users. In addition, we replaced Elasticsearch with OpenSearch because of OpenSearch Project leadership's commitment to open source licensing and the open source community, of which we are proud to be a member. With CrafterCMS version 4.1, we’ve built a best–in-class content authoring experience delivering unprecedented capabilities for a headless CMS to enterprise content teams, and a truly open source API-first headless CMS for software developers and DevOps teams.”

Pre-built plug-ins, integrations and blueprints from the CrafterCMS Marketplace may be used by administrators to compose tailored authoring experiences for a variety of content management use cases, and by content creators to compose engaging digital experiences for end users -- all through an easy drag-and-drop user interface. CrafterCMS also provides a Git-based content repository and unique support for DevContentOps processes that enable frictionless collaboration between content authors, developers and operations. The types of digital experiences powered by the headless CrafterCMS platform at major enterprises today include large-scale personalized enterprise websites, global e-commerce sites, OTT video experiences, native mobile apps, employee intranets, customer and partner portals, digital assistants, digital signage, AR/VR experiences, and many others.
