Kentico CMS Adds ASP.NET 2.0 Support

Brno, Czech Republic, November 2, 2005 – Kentico Software, a web content management solutions vendor, has added ASP.NET 2.0 support to the latest version of Kentico CMS. The new version works with ASP.NET 2.0, Visual Studio 2005 and SQL Server 2005, including their Express Editions.

The new version 1.7b of Kentico CMS supports not only ASP.NET 1.1, but also the latest Microsoft ASP.NET 2.0 platform, Visual Studio 2005 and SQL Server 2005. The choice of the ASP.NET 2.0 platform allows web developers not only to create web sites with less code, but it also saves their money as they can use the free Express Editions of Microsoft Visual Web Developer and SQL Server 2005.

“The new ASP.NET 2.0 platform and Visual Studio 2005 give web developers very powerful tools. However, the most important point for us is the release of free Express Editions of Microsoft Visual Web Developer and SQL Server 2005. It can help us, as well as other ISV’s, reach many new developers who wouldn’t invest into tools and database server,” says Petr Palas, founder of Kentico Software. “Moreover, we do not need to create a separate version for free open source databases, as developers with smaller budget can install SQL Server 2005 Express on their server for free and use it for common web sites,” he adds.

Still, Kentico plans to support both ASP.NET 1.1 and 2.0 platforms in the nearest releases, until majority of web developers switch to the new version. “If you consider the quality, improvements and affordability of the Microsoft’s new tools, one can expect a fast adoption among web developers,” comments Petr Palas.
