CrafterCMS, the leading open-source Git-based headless CMS for enterprises, announced the general availability release of its version 4. The new release includes three major new capabilities: 1) a brand new Experience Builder for composing digital experiences from reusable plug-ins and components, and for true in-context editing and preview that supports all front-end technologies and any digital channels, 2) a brand new Crafter Studio content authoring application, built in React on top of CrafterCMS’s API-first headless content authoring platform, that is faster and enables content teams to create, edit, review, and publish more productively than ever before, and 3) a brand new plug-in framework and expanded marketplace that allows developers to quickly build and easily maintain reusable components and back-end integrations.
