eZ Publish Documentation
What is eZ Publish
eZ Publish is an Enterprise Open-Source Content Management System/Framework (CMS/F) at its core. It is highly extendable so with extensions it provides "WCMS" capabilities. Its default Enterprise offering as of version 5.0, "eZ Publish Platform", is extended to provide full set of Customer Experience Management (CXM) capabilities.
What is new in eZ Publish 5.0
Version 5.0 represents a big step forward for eZ Publish, as it introdcuces a whole new architecture. Most of it is under the hood in this release, and there is no new user interfaces (UI). Those are covered by the existing 4.x UI, which is now referred to as 'legacy'. If you're a developer and want to know more about this "Dual-kernel" approach, head over to the developer section.
New major features in eZ Publish 5.0 include:
- eZ Publish Public API
- REST API v2 (with full read and write support)
- Symfony2 based
In addition we have also bundled a preview of our Demo Site on top of the new architecture, if you do a new fresh install you will get this by default in front-end.
