Did you miss us? All our sites went on a brief holiday together recently, leaving everyone to their own devices for a day. Warm sandy beaches, bright blue skies, barely a cloud in the sky. The food was fantastic! It took a bit of coaxing to get us back, but we couldn't stay away too long.
Actually, we hadn't been paying attention to all the clutter we've been collecting and we filled up all the available space at home (SiteGround.com). So much so, we needed to enlist the help of SiteGround's support team to make room for us to return. They were prompt and efficient, getting things all tidied up for us and making our home comfortable once again.

At ImpressCMS, we take pride in following good coding practices, both to produce a stable, easy-to-use CMS, and in providing the most secure environment for your websites. In this day and age, high-assurance security is something that we have to start thinking about. As a community, we’ve done our best as far as code security; now, we’re looking to advance to the next level.
We are now working with SecurifyLabs, a company that specializes in open-source assessment and remediation support approached us. Their collaborations include open-source initiatives such as Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware, ElkArte and BigBlueButton. Having SecurifyLabs as our security partner will be a game changer for our entire community.

7 years ago (on 9 January 2008, to be exact) the first beta release of ImpressCMS was announced and since then we have released 26 versions of ImpressCMS - from 1.0.0 to 1.3.7! We are averaging around 4 releases a year, which is a respectable number, considering the work that goes into them. Currently, we're still supporting 2 main branches - 1.2 and 1.3 - while developing in our 2.0 branch.
Over the course of the year, we switched our hosting to Siteground, and they have been a very good partner for us. We also did a quick redesign and relaunch of the Addons site to prepare for a merging of our different properties into a single, updated site.
We had 2 related vulnerability reports we addressed this year, which has prompted us to be even more diligent in our security efforts. We have joined oCert Security Response and are working with another vendor that will provide us with security scans based on community support (watch for an upcoming announcement).
All-in-all, year 7 was a good year and we're looking ahead to an even better year in 2015!
