Nominate OpenCms as best Open Source CMS!

August 12, 2006

Open Source CMS Award 2006

Packt Publishing has launched a new award for the title of best open source Content Management System, 2006.

Please nominate OpenCms for the  Open Source CMS Award 2006.

The 5 systems with the most votes will go to the final, where an independent jury will select the winner. It is your vote that counts.

Packt Publishing also has now released a new book about OpenCms 6 called Managing and Customizing OpenCms 6 Websites . The book covers OpenCms version 6 and has been written by Matt Butcher.

Managing and Customizing OpenCms 6 Websites covers:

  • Installing OpenCms, and its basic concepts
  • Using the OpenCms Workplace to manage and publish your content
  • Managing projects, user accounts, databases, and modules
  • Working with the VFS and search
  • Understanding and using tasks and workflows
  • Working with templates and the OpenCms Tag Library

This book is for anyone who wants to get an OpenCMS website up and running as quickly as possible, whether you are a user, administrator, designer or webmaster.

UPDATE (Sep. 4, 2006): Nominations have been closed. Thanks to all users who voted for OpenCms.

Unfortunatly OpenCms did not make the final 5 in the award. However, no other Java based system did either. Apparently at least the popularity of PHP based systems is greater, as 4 out of the final 5 are purly PHP based.

Extensions to the template variant mechanism allow setting overrides and renaming of formatter keys. There are also refinements for the "Mercury" default template as well as security improvements.
