Any news on the Catalogue release? Will it have an API to connect a CMS?

No, it won't have an API initially.  What CMS do you have in mind and what API documentation does it have?

If I recall correctly, the catalog product was announced in October of last year for future release.   Has there been any further official announcements that I might have missed?

No.  We're still working on it.

Thanks for the info, Kirk. We are using one CMS for print products, which is WoodWing and another one for online publishing, which is GeCont. Both offer a XML API. No further documentation available at the moment.

Hi, Heavymeister
Would it be an advantage if PM used this kind of interface for personal/individual usage?
TIA

Good Day Kirk,

I know Catalogue is still under DEV, but could you commit to a firm confirmation that 2013 will be the year we will see a Final Product?
by 2013 I mean at least end of 2013?

Regards
Lanzi

Lanzi... you must be new here  :)  One does not commit to dates in the software biz.

Hi ron,

i beg to differ. in my humble opinion it is a legit question to ask for any kind of solid information regarding a release date of a software that has been announced in 2011 with a promised release date for 2012. i was not asking for an exact date. 2013 is a big timeframe and i just wanted to know if 2013 will be the year we will see a final product one can actually buy.

i know cambits wants to do a solid job, which is noble and should be appreciated, but non the less they will have a roadmap and hence should be able to at least pinpoint an entire year as a time frame for an official release.

so my question again, will we see a final catalogue product in 2013?

regards lanzi

p.s. yes i am new to the forum but not new to the products of cambits. using pm for more than 4 years.
