Corel has released a new beta of their WordPerfect Lightning product. Lightning is a lightweight document and image management app that now supports publishing to blogs:
Our first supported blog platform is WordPress, and I think it’s a great fit. WordPress’ reputation among serious bloggers is unparalleled, but more importantly, its open SDK and strong support for images makes it easy for users to blog pretty much whatever information they’ve collected in Lightning.
As an aside, this is a good example of self-serve business development enabled by open APIs. Corel simply decided that they wanted to support WordPress and used our open APIs to do it. No business development back and forth, no contracts, no friction. They just implemented it and contacted us a couple of days ago to give us a heads up.
