Warning : This release is for testing purpose only, demo and admin site DON'T work, download this version only to have a preview of the new framework mechanism.

This release brings a new framework based on XRT (XML Request Transform). In short, XRT is XSL extended (using eXSLT) to transform HTTP requests into HTTP responses. You can find more information on XRT in the project Xsltpages : http://www.nongnu.org/xsltpages/ (I found Xsltpages while I was looking how to use XSL to transform HTTP requests, so that was a great source of inspiration, thank you guys...)... read more

Mapix CMS 0.7.5 released

Mapix CMS is a full XML content manager system, based on XML standards (XSL, XSD, XForms, RSS...) and written in PHP.

This release adds many standard XML schemas (HTML, RSS, XSL, XSD, XForms...) to create compliant XML documents directly with the online XML editor.

I suppose this discouraged people from downloading Mapix CMS because there was no download since this bug !... read more
