Sitefinity 3.0 RC1 available for download

Many of you may not know this, but telerik does do more than ASP.NET and WinForms (and now Reporting) products. They also make a full featured Content Management System (or CMS) called Sitefinity. You'd be hard pressed to find a link to Sitefinity on the website today, but that's all about to change with upcoming release of Sitefinity 3.0.

The new Sitefinity represents a complete re-write of the CMS, making it even easier for developers to extend the product with custom modules and raising the product's general quality to the traditional "telerik quality" that we've come to expect. The features of Sitefinity 3.0 are vast, including multilingual support, content versioning, customizable content workflows, user management, full Visual Studio 2005 support, and out-of-the-box support for a variety of database backends.

Today's news represents the culmination of 7 months worth of development on the new CMS version. If you're used to seeing the amazing results telerik can produce in their quarterly radControl releases, you'll have some idea of what you can expect from an incubation period of this length.
