ImpressCMS is 2009's Most Promising Open Source CMS

ImpressCMS is 2009's Most Promising Open Source CMS

First appearing in last year's Packt Publishing Open Source CMS competition and finishing 3rd in the Most Promising category, the ImpressCMS community and developers turned their focus to living up to the expectations of a most promising CMS. The result is the winning spot in Packt's 2009 competition. This award is an honor earned from strong community support and a panel of experienced and respected figures in the open source and Content Management industry.

Winning this award is indeed an honor, but we truly appreciate the support of the community that has brought us to this position.We also would like to thank and recognize the other finalists - Pligg, Manhali, Redaxscript and Pixie. They are certain to remain key players in the open source world.

What Next?

Not ones to rest on our laurels, we are on the eve of releasing ImpressCMS 1.2 RC and looking ahead to even more fun next year. ImpressCMS will also be represented by our very own sato-san at the Open Source Expo 09 in Karlsruhe, Germany on the 15th and 16th of November.

This award adds $2000 to our treasury and a full report for the 3rd quarter of 2009 is being finalized. Plans to begin using these funds in 2010 are being laid out, focusing on 3 different aspects: Benevolence, Expenses and Promotions.

About ImpressCMS

In its short history, ImpressCMS is closing in on 10,000 commits to its code base - a great tribute to all the developers that have contributed to this project. The number of downloads of each version is growing and we have a number of translations available.

The goal of the ImpressCMS Project is to stimulate and promote the open source nature of the CMS in both the core and its modules and establish itself as the premiere CMS by expanding the system to meet the needs of their users now and well into the future.

ImpressCMS is -
* Open Source
* Open Development - Apply now!
* Open Philosophy
* Open Community

I can't even begin to put in words how proud I am of this community and project. It blows my mind how far you all have come in such a short time. This award only confirms what all of you have shown through your actions...

There is good code here, there is a good concept here, and there are passionate people who are willing to go the extra mile to make that potential come to fruition.

Well done!!!!

This is good news, indeed. It makes me proud to be part of this project. Hopefully we can keep up our good work. (and I'm not saying good to praise ourselves, Packt is saying that)

Let's use this as acknolegement to make it even better

That's the only drawback about having a number of active devs - it spreads the thanks evenly

Hi Guys,

Let's congratulate ourselves. Don't forget we all did it together.
The entire community of ImpressCMS makes this CMS a winner.

Yes we're all working really hard on the next version and when it comes out we need the input again of all our users. Did we leave out a bit or a byte? Tell us! We'll improve it for next time.

So these two years are for the most promising CMS. Now it means that we will compete in the best PHP CMS next year (we can't compete in the most promising CMS anymore).

What makes us being able to compete with the best PHP CMSs? The community!

Enough rambling. Congratulations all!
