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.

Radeon RX 580: AMDGPU-PRO vs. DRM-Next + Mesa 17.2-dev

Last week I posted initial Radeon RX 580 Linux benchmarks and even AMDGPU overclocking results. That initial testing of this "Polaris Evolved" hardware was done with the fully-open Radeon driver stack that most Linux enthusiasts/gamers use these days. The AMDGPU-PRO driver wasn't tested for those initial articles as it seems to have a diminishing user-base and largely focused for workstation users. But for those wondering how AMDGPU-PRO runs with the Radeon RX 580, here are some comparison results to DRM-Next code for Linux 4.12 and Mesa 17.2-dev. Read more

Top 4 CDN services for hosting open source libraries

A CDN, or content delivery network, is a network of strategically placed servers located around the world used for the purpose of delivering files faster to users.
