SDL Tridion Community week in review - February 5, 2012

Welcome to our Weekly community review for February 5th 2012.

This week was obviously dominated by the Alterian acquisition news, and how the integration of the various businesses and operations will develop in the next few months. But of course it didn't stop there. This week we have again a great selection of high-value content, including samples on using the Razor Mediator, Nuno feeling for editors and automating Tridion tasks.

There was the official communication from SDL's CEO John Hunter and Chairman Mark Lancaster, but much more was put out there including a blog post from Ian Truscott about the three things that excite him regarding the Alterian Acquisition and CMSWire's details on how things will pan out for both organizations.
