SourceForge Community Choice Awards 2009 Finalists Announced

Last year, ImpressCMS was a finalist in the SourceForge Community Choice Awards in the Best New Project category. We didn't make the cutoff to be in the new project category again this year, but we appealed to the community for nominations in Best Project and any others you felt we earned. The finalists were announced today at SourceForge and ImpressCMS was not among them. There are many other high-profile open source projects that did not place among the finalists either and only one content management system is a finalist (Typo 3).

We would like to recognize the positive contributions each of these projects has made in the open source arena and we are committed to being among them in future competitions.

One of the most important aspects of ImpressCMS development is the actual testing of our product because without knowing if there are any issues in various different environments, we can't provide vital fixes.

Because of this, we're now making the call for testers to come forward and join our Qualty Control Team, ImpressCMS needs you!!

ImpressCMS has taken great strides over the last year and we'll continue to in 2009. As we finish our first year, we're wanting to streamline things a little to enhance and optimize our process in making releases, decisions and guiding the project. With this in mind, it was proposed we should consider a more formal structure for the project and that is what we're doing!

ImpressCMS as a project has grown immensely over the last year, so much so that it's becoming more challenging to maintain and manage the project with such large numbers involved. Because of this, the decision has been reached to create a more formal structure for the sole purpose of directing the project and helping us to continue growing.
