Drupal, Joomla! among finalists for open-source CMS award

Filed under
Drupal

UK-based Packt Publishing has announced the finalists for its Open Source CMS Award: CMS Made Simple, Drupal, e107, Joomla!, and PHP-Fusion. The overall winning project, scheduled to be announced in November, will receive $5,000, with an additional $15,000 distributed among runners-up and subcategory winners.

These content-management systems (CMSs) were selected through an online nomination process in July and August. A final winner will be chosen from the five nominees from the votes of three human judges and a virtual judge that represents the winner of the final voting round.

Drupal and Joomla! are among the most well-known open-source CMSs. They, along with Plone, were Packt's top three CM systems in last year's contest.

New to this year's finalist list are CMS Made Simple, e107 and PHP-Fusion. CMS Made Simple lives up to its name: it is indeed simple, but limited in its feature set, as is PHP-Fusion. The e107 system provides more features and flexibility. A finalist last year, it was lauded for its flexibility and ease of installation.

Of this year's five finalists, only Drupal natively supports version control -- the ability to track changes to site content and roll back to previous versions. It's also the only one to support content staging, although that requires an add-on module.

The First Vivid-Based Ubuntu Touch Image Has Been Released

As I have previously announced, the Ubuntu Touch development branch is based on Ubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet, while the Ubuntu RTM branch is still using Ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn as code base, because it has already received stability improvements and will by default on the first Ubuntu powered Meizu phone. Currently, all the new features are implemented on the Ubuntu-Devel branch, the RTM one receiving only fixes. Read more

Security-Minded Qubes OS Will Satisfy Your Yen for Xen

It has advanced far beyond the primitive proof of concept demonstrated more than four years ago. Release 2 (beta), which arrived in late September, is a powerful desktop OS. Qubes succeeds in seamless integrating security by isolation into the user experience. However, comparing Qubes to a typical Linux distro is akin to comparing the Linux OS to Unix. Read more

Sad News! ;-)

So, XP is dead, “7” is dying, “8” is a zombie, and “10” is vapourware with nowhere to call home. M$ continues layoffs. POOF! It all falls down. In the meantime Google and the OEMs will crank out many millions of ChromeBooks. Canonical, Linpus, RedHat, Suse… and the OEMs will crank out many millions of GNU/Linux PCs. Several OEMs will crank out many millions of GNU/Linux thin clients. Android/Linux will reverberate with another billion or so units of small cheap computers(tablets, smartphones). This looks like good news to me. Read more

Android creator Andy Rubin is leaving Google

The move is, perhaps, not a total surprise. Last March, Rubin left the Android group and was replaced by Sundar Pichai. His latest project, as detailed in a lengthy New York Times report in December, was creating robots for a project outside of the company's Google X lab, something that dovetailed with Google's shopping spree of robotics companies. In 2012, there were also rumors abound that Rubin planned to leave for a stealth-mode startup called CloudCar, though they were vehemently denied. Read more
