It has been 2 1/2 years since an update has been released for SimplyWiki, and several things have been added or improved since then. Now, all those changes have been tested and validated and a new final release is ready for you!
SimplyWiki can be used in many ways - to create your own wiki with built in rich text (WYSIWYG) editors, to maintain a simple website, and to create content for specific groups of people. It supports multiple languages (even right-to-left languages), versioning, and work flows for document creation and approvals. You can see it in action at wiki.impresscms.org and www.simplywiki.org

The first in a series of patches to ImpressCMS is now ready to download and apply. This patch will update Smarty to version 2.6.28 and remove the email protection hack from the Smarty files and establishes it as a preload instead.
The changes from Smarty were to make it compliant with PHP 5.5 and to reapply a fix that had not been carried forward from a previous version.
Patches are designed to bring you features and fixes much quicker - and be simple to apply to your sites.

We have installed Cloudflare protection on the server, which means you can encounter an intermediate page every so often when you visit the ImpressCMS websites. There is no reason to be alarmed, it is meant to work that way for the near future.

Jetbrains just released a new major version of PHPStorm, their PHP-oriented development environment. Some of the core team have been using PHPStorm for a while now, and this is an IDE that is loaded with time-saving features and goodies. The fact that it runs on Windows, MacOS and Linux is a big plus!

As the 1.3 life cycle was being launched, the ImpressCMS Team elected a Release Manager to oversee the coordination of development, feature requests, issue tracking, packaging of the releases and posting announcements. This was a new role for ImpressCMS, and the first person selected to fill that role was David Janssens (@fiammybe), who took on this role and began to add another dimension to the project and its direction.
The next stage of ImpressCMS has been set - the 2.0 releases, built on the foundation of 1.3. With the advent of this new series of releases, it has come time to say 'Thank you!' to David and usher in a new Release Manager.

I’m pretty sure, you have noticed, that our ImpressCMS marketing material is starting to look old. We would like to brush up on it and therefore would like to turn it over to you. You can create new graphics or edit existing ones.
