Adobe Experience Manager 6.4: What’s New?
August 14, 2018
Adobe Experience Manager continues to innovate with the ability to author rich content faster, utilize machine learning, and deliver more relevant and personalized experiences. Here are the key features of newly launched Adobe Experience Manager 6.4
Style System for Web Components
The Style System feature helps create visual variations of Web Components with zero back-end development. It empowers template authors to configure different styles for a component, so that a single component can be reused on multiples pages with different variations or layouts, hence maximizing design flexibility and minimizing development effort.
Experience Fragments Integration with Adobe Target
Experience Fragments were introduced in AEM 6.3, a powerful feature that allows authors to reuse content across channels within AEM sites or any other external applications. AEM Experience Fragments are reusable layouts or units of components that can live independently.
With AEM 6.4, content authors can create experience fragments in AEM and can easily export to Adobe Target as HTML offers.
AEM Content Fragments & Services
Content Fragments models are the new visual content model editor and a new configurable component to provide flexible HTML output and JSON to include in content services. It helps create, manage, and deliver structured content to any channel.
This feature enables authors to create Content Fragments using Content Fragment models.
