EPiServer Composer 4 is on its way!

What's new in EPiServer Composer 4

The focus for this major version is about performance and stability. We have optimized loading times, both for the editing interface and for serving up Composer-based pages to the web visitor. The user interface has been updated to give a better and more intuitive user experience and we have made it easier for developers and administrators to work with the configuration and setup in the administrator interface.

Note; Composer 4 is built to be compatible with EPiServer CMS 6 only.

In summary

» New and improved functionality for managing and editing global blocks

» New and improved functionality for managing and editing Composer templates

» Major performance improvements related to page delivery and UI responsiveness

» New web-based help for editors and administrators

» New functionality for content re-usage; Dynamic Function allows structures to be reused on separate sections of the website (fetches Composer functions from other pages, much like fetch data from other pages).
