I’ve just read Julian Wraith’s new blog post showcasing the visual highlights of Tridion 2011.
Whilst Tridion 2009 had a visually enhanced content manager interface (GUI), this was merely a new lick of CSS to give the GUI a visual refresh over Tridion 5.X versions.
However the SDL Tridon 2011 GUI has been completely re-built from scratch (using Microsoft .NET, older versions we’re ASP based) and has a new design layout featuring a Microsoft Office style ‘ribbon’ containing older contextual menu functions.
I’m looking forward to having a play with 2011 and seeing what other new enhancements are present.
If you’re interested in seeing the new GUI in action have a watch of this Youtube video that has been uploaded.
Thanks to Rainmaker2k and of course Julian for putting this information out there.
