Version 5.0 Release Notes

Release Date: September 17, 2009


  • Windows 2008 Server Only – In order to stay current on technology platforms, Titan v5 now runs on Microsoft Server 2008. There is no support for previous versions of Windows Server.
  • Remove AD/AM (Active Directory/Application Mode) – Titan now uses its own authentication, and no longer requires Microsoft Active Directory/Application Mode (AD/AM) for authentication. There is a transition method for existing customers from AD/AM to Titan Authentication.
  • Upgrade to SQL 2008 – In order to leverage new features in SQL 2008, improving performance and stability, previous versions of SQL are no longer supported.
  • End User Account Registration - Titan will now allow Titan administrators to configure Account Registration including email confirmation, account approval, and account preferences.
  • Two new Blocks: Login and Registration so that administrators can build their own login and registration pages for each website. Default Login and Registration Page URLs can be configured in each content site
  • User personalization - Titan will now allow the Filter Block to filter content according to the end user's profile preferences. 
  • One DNS name/Site – To improve page handling and SEO, each content site will now need to be configured to respond to a single primary URL. Hits to any page within the site on a different primary URL will automatically redirect the user to the primary URL. This prevents pages linked between sites from rendering on the incorrect URL and also prevents google from seeing the same page on two URLs.
  • New User Management Module – We've redesigned the User Management Module to make it easier to view and report on user information, including a new User Dashboard showing active authors and private site users as well as users requiring action (approval, expiring, etc.)
