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.

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.

On the evening of November 24th, 2008, we suspect an attack was perpetrated against the ImpressCMS network of sites. We are conducting an exhaustive investigation into this matter, but at the present time, the perpetrator(s) has not been apprehended. While performing our security audit, we observed that some system files had been changed. We also noticed files that were located in deep sub-directories that were very old. At present, we do not believe this is an issue with the ImpressCMS core, but with malicious code that has been lying dormant since before this site was converted to ImpressCMS.

For Immediate Release

With the release of ImpressCMS 1.1 Final, we have changed the method of how passwords are encrypted and stored within the database, to enhance the security for both administrators and users of ImpressCMS powered websites.

We will also officially be making this change to our own ImpressCMS network of sites, which will affect all accounts and require some minor action on your part.

The results are in, the judges have spoken and it's now official.

ImpressCMS is ranked the 3rd most promising in the world!

Before we get to self involved marvelling at our own success, patting ourselves on the back and thanking the community, I feel it's important that we first step back and take the time to also congratulate others.
