I woke up this morning with a very nice announcement that SilverStripe 3.0 has official been released. As you know, I'm a huge fan of the SilverStripe CMS. Next week, I hope to cover SilverStripe 3 better, but with limited time this Friday you'll just have to be satisfied with a copy of the below press release.
If I'm lucky, I think I might also be able to find a video interview I did last year with SilverStripe's co-founder, Sigurd Magnusson, on the then upcoming SilverStripe 3. I had some video editing format issues that perhaps I'm a little smarter now to overcome. Stay tuned on this "developing story".
With 3.0.0 SilverStripe released the latest version of their open source content management system today. 3.0.0 offers a powerful framework and a striking user interface in the back end.
The latest version boasts a modern and clean UI with a lot of under the hood improvements. Extensive user testing led to major interface improvements in the back end. Media insertion works easy via ‘Drag and Drop’ and URL embed. With the release of SilverStripe 3 comes the SilverStripe Framework, which is now a separate tool to build applications and sites that don’t require a CMS.
The stable version is ready to download now. Here is what’s new:
The administrative interface
The latest SilverStripe generation CMS is a milestone for the company and their open source community. 3.0 sets the ground for further changes and improvements
