While the content management system, SilverStripe, has been on my radar for some time I never really took the time to cover the Web application here at CMS Report. Now it so happens that SilverStripe has been nominated as one of the most promising open source CMS out there. About the only thing I can do to correct my oversight is to put SilverStripe on a list of the "top 30" CMS we focus on here at CMS Report. Sadly, mostly out of nostalgia, SilverStripe will be bumping Simple PHP Blog off the "CMS Focus" list.
Earlier this month, SilverStripe 2.1 was released. The folks on the SilverStripe team appear pretty excited about this release, with just the right synergy brewing to give this CMS a good future. Some of the new features and improvements in SilverStripe 2.1 include:
- New security system (benefiting from Google Summer of Code)
- Blog Module (with drag-n-drop widget support including tag clouds, RSS feed, etc)
- Support for Updated Gallery Module
