The public API will give you an easy access to the eZ Publish content repository. This repository is the core component that manages content, locations (former Nodes), sections, content types (former Content Classes), user groups, users and roles. It also provides a new, clear interface for plugging in custom field types (former Datatypes).
The public API is built on top of a layered architecture including a new persistence layer for abstracting the storage functionality. By using the public API, your applications will be forward compatible with future releases based on enhanced, scalable and high-performance storage engines. Applications based on the public API are also fully backwards compatible by using the included storage engine based on the current kernel and database model.
It is possible to to make an update in content or create content with more than one language. But there is a restriction - only one language can be assigned to the newly created version (which is displayed in the 4.x admin GUI in the translations column).
