My colleague Adam Ginsburg alerts me to a now-in-beta update to WebSphere Portal....

New features introduced in this WebSphere Portal V6.1 Beta 1 release include:

- Simpler download/install

- New Web 2.0 support to dramatically improve performance of the browser based user experience

- New Site management capabilities greatly improve abilty to promote portal applications from test to production

- Step-up authentication providing options to extend end user security options

- New Theme customizer portlet improves ability to create and manage portal themes

- Updated out of box example web sites with new support for preconfigured internet security and virtual portal support
Adam tells me that when it says "simpler download/install", it really is, much faster than previous versions of WebSphere Portal.

The public beta is now available from ibm.com - WebSphere Portal 6.1 beta >
