Superdesk Publisher 1.2 release
The latest release of Superdesk Publisher, our digital-native publishing extension for Superdesk, brings a host of new features to put creativity back in the newsroom. Adding and installing themes is easier than ever before; plus, we have some new themes to choose from. Meanwhile, newsroom managers will appreciate more fine-grained user role management, with the option to assign specific permissions to modify and maintain live websites. Last but not least, publishers can now add Live Blog to their websites in just a few clicks, thanks to a dedicated Live Blog widget.
Here are the updates in more detail.
