Boston, MA and Amsterdam, The Netherlands – Hippo, the company setting new standards for how Commercial Open Source Web Content Management can empower audiences and change the way organizations manage Web content announced today the launch of its newest version - Hippo CMS 7.6.  This latest edition of the software is Hippo’s love letter to its developer community – featuring new capabilities developed directly from the feedback received from the thousands of developers and architects who work on the Hippo platform.   The new version is available on Hippo’s Web site, as well as on

New Developer Capabilities & Training

Continuing in its role as one of the technological leaders in Web Content Management, Hippo CMS 7.6 also offers new features to make the developer’s tasks easier and deployments more powerful.

As part of 7.6 Hippo has released a number of new technology enhancements including:

·       Native support to change content types on the fly, providing much faster development cycles

·       CMIS Support – adding interoperability with ECM Systems

·       Support for Tomcat 6, Cargo and JRebel giving developers the tools to develop faster without time consuming rebuilds

·       Automatic exporting of developer configurations

·       Extensive Spring MVC support

And, maybe most importantly, with the release of version 7.6 Hippo is proud to release the Hippo Trail - a complete interactive training Web site that walks new developers through the complete cycle of a successful Hippo CMS implementation.   From Baby Hippo to Hippo Awesomeness, developers now have a step-by-step guide to implement the CMS.  The Hippo Trail is available immediately at

Arjé Cahn, CTO of Hippo, said “Hippo CMS 7.6 is designed to help not just end-users get more out of their Web Content Management experience, but also the developers that implement our software. We noticed that more and more of these developers were also using Spring technologies. It was clear that the Spring ecosystem was in need of a good enterprise-grade Web Content Management system, and Hippo CMS 7.6 fills that gap. In every Enterprise Java environment we see the same issues when it comes to WCM and integration; and this is where Hippo is an ideal fit. We strive to create a perfect balance. While we want to provide end-users with an intuitive enterprise-class CMS experience, we never lose focus that we also need to continually provide more powerful and flexible solutions for developers and architects.”

Hippo has scheduled a webinar for developers who are interested in getting started with Hippo 7.6 on Monday July 25th, 5pm CEST / 8am PDT. Attendees can sign up for this free online webinar at
