It has been released and I decided to list out five things that I think are very important to the release of 2011. Mostly talk has been about the new Content Manager Explorer (and it’s cross browser functionality) but this is just the surface. Underneath there are many changes of which just five is a small snippet of what you can find in the box…
To meet the demands of a large scale enterprise the deployer is now much more scalable than before allowing organizations to constantly grow their environment to meet the demands placed upon it by a growing content organization. The scalable deployer allows multiple processes to simultaneously process deployments as well as updating the publisher on how much load they can handle to avoid overloading.
The new Content Delivery storage layer is based upon the Java Persistence API (JPA) and its concrete implementation, Hibernate. With this you are able to expand the single Content Delivery storage layer to encompass multiple different data sources (e.g. product information or user generated content) into one single layer.

The new fully .NET event system is modular. Does not sound like much but you can add one or more separate event systems to the same Content Management environment. Each event system can work alone hooking into different CM activities or can work together as part of coordinated event driven activities.
