We're Back After a Brief Holiday

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.

ImpressCMS: Highlights from 2014

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!
