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!

Developers - Update Your Git Clients!

A critical security flaw was discovered in Git clients and patched this week. This does not affect any of our repositories hosted on Assembla, but can impact your local clones of the repository. The vulnerability concerns repositories or clones that reside on file systems that are case-insensitive or case-normalizing (like OSX using HFS+ or Windows, whether it uses NTFS or FAT).

ImpressCMS joins oCert Security Response

The ImpressCMS project has been invited to joined the oCert security response initiative. As a project that is paranoid about security, this was a logical step. We also consider it a confirmation of our very good security track record up till now.
