Canto announced on Thursday that
is immediately available for the myCumulus, Single User, Workgroup and Enterprise editions of the digital asset management software. The major addition in this update is support for XMP, Adobe’s metadata standard, which allows users to read the information as well as write new XMP metadata back to the original asset. Canto also noted several performance enhancements in Cumulus 6.0.3, including faster opening of catalogs or collections, a cache for quick reloading of the last pages viewed, a new sorting button, changes to the Preview window, a new Photo Suite option that brings in support for RAW image files and more. In addition, the upgrade adds WebAlbum, a tool for creating Web-based albums built on static HTML pages. This is a free update for owners of Cumulus 6.0.x.
