Folio, the Utah-based publishing software company, is to launch siteDirector 3.1 at the Internet World trade show in New York this week, according to company sources.
Version 3.1 utilises the company's infobase technology to automate the process of collecting and managing large amounts of data from a variety of sources.
For instance, webmasters can combine word processor, rich text format, graphics, page layout and relational database information into a single infobase repository. The data is then automatically translated into HTML for publishing on the Internet or a corporate intranet.
The product also features a metering capability that can be used to allocate information costs, and thus enable World Wide Web publishers to charge for that information.
The product will be available this month at a US$9995 price tag.
