Midgard Weekly Summary #69: March 8th 2007
==========================================

This week's MWS is a bit thin because of time constraints. This means
some interesting things like MidCOM's new style editor will be left to
MWS #70.

Happenings this week
--------------------

* Midgard talk in Norway. [Henri Bergius][4] will be talking about
_Midgard CMS - building a business around an open source application
developed as a joint venture between multiple companies_ in the [Open
Source in Business][5] conference arranged by [Den Norske
Dataforening][6] in Kristiansand on March 29th

* SyncML in OpenPsa. Thanks to [Juhana Hirvilahti][12], [latest CVS
checkout][10] of OpenPsa's [SyncML plugin works][11] for synchronizing
Midgard-based calendars with various mobile devices. The plugin runs
inside [Funambol's SyncML framework][9]

* Multilingual content management. Midgard supports [Multilingual
content management][13] very nicely in [MidCOM 2.7][14]. Jerry Jalava
[reports on his implementation][15]

* No MWS next week. I'm off hunting [willow grouse][7] in [Lapland][8]
next week.

About Midgard
-------------

Midgard CMS is an Open Source Content Management System built on top
of the Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP (LAMP) platform. It provides a
reliable, powerful and internationalized set of tools for building web
sites and networked applications.

Midgard utilizes PHP as the web scripting language and provides
integration interfaces on Java and C layers. Midgard's unique
architecture enables it to provide services like single sign-on and
replication. With these capabilities and the integrated full-text
search system, Midgard is an excellent match for information-rich web
sites and intranets.
