Web log vendors are steering the technology toward corporate collaboration needs with the addition of security, personalization, and integration features.

This week Traction Software plans to roll out Release 3.0 of its TeamPage Web log software, with additions such as extensible authentication, Web services support, and enterprise search-engine compatibility. In addition, Socialtext recently introduced a software collaboration platform that combines Web log and e-mail collaboration.

Other new features include expanded language support, customizable user interfaces, compatibility with enterprise search engines, and SOAP binding capabilities.
