  • Why open source attracts my attention

    From CMS Report's very beginning, I had every intention to talk about not only those content management systems (CMS) that are open source, but also those CMS that are considered propriety systems.  I personally don't have a problem seeing companies making profit for the products they develop and promote.  Yet, if you look at the majority of posts I have written in the past year you'll find that about 95% of the articles center around open source CMS and not propriety systems.  Part of the…

  • Firefox 3 getting some press time

    Yesterday, InfoWorld posted an article on the yet-to-be-released Firefox 3.  The article is titled, "Firefox 3.0 opens door to Web apps, Mozilla says".If the Firefox browser were a car, it would be in the garage right now being souped up by an anxious group of gearheads.When Firefox 3.0 is released later this year, the open-source browser is likely to contain a host of new features, including offline support for Web applications and new bookmark and search features. Mozilla released the…

  • Donncha: Catch it if you can! WordPress MU 1.1.1 escaped!

    I could not help but chuckle when I read this post.  Donncha O Caoimh  hinted that he may have released Wordpress MU 1.1.1 a day earlier then he intended.  Sort of like sending that e-mail or blog post sooner then you had intended.  Despite the release of Wordpress MU 1.1.1 a day early, it still sounds as if you can expect a good package out of this version. Despite my best efforts to put off releasing WordPress mu 1.1.1 for another day it slipped through my fingers, tarred and zipped itself…

  • Serendipity 1.1.1 and sneek peek at Serendipity 1.2

    Serendipity 1.1.1 was released to fix a few bugs.  This is the first update to Serendipity 1.1 since it was first released at the end of 2006.  The 1.1.1 update does not include any security fixes so you may not even need to update unless you've experienced one of these bugs: Windows IIS server cookie/session authentication problem when not running via HTTPS Change execution order of trackbacks to properly send them when a failure occurs Display proper plugin permissionship restrictions…

  • Find the open source survey, Save the doctor

    Here is your chance to help out the academic scholars figure out what open source is all about. Lara Thynne, a PhD candidate at Deakin University Australia, is running a survey to be used in examining the motivation of open source users when it comes to participating in open source projects and using open source software. Ms. Thynne's difficulty is that she is needing around 1500 completed surveys and hasn't quite connected with the open source communities to "get the job done". I encourage…

  • 10 US Presidents that were also geeks

    The site, eWeek,  posted a little slide show  in honor of Presidents Day.  The slide show lists "10 U.S. presidents who held patents, thought globally and believed in the power of the press—and macaroni".  To the best of my knowledge, none of the presidents have actually managed their own Web site.  What a shame for a US President to not experience the true joys of being a geek. Actually, I'm more excited about the new Presidential Dollar coins which I blogged about on another site months ago. …

It contains a huge list of fixes.There is no exaggeration in describing the list of fixes as being huge.  Take a look at the changelog and see for yourself.  Somebody has been…

  • Moodle Job at Moodle HQ

    I usually do not post job announcements on the front page here at CMS Report.  However, I think doing something that can help open source, content management systems, and the teaching community all at the same time is well worth bending the rules.  I'm not sure if the job is on-site or virtual so for those that that don't know, Perth is in  Western Australia.  Then again, if you didn't know that Perth is in Australia you probably shouldn't apply to work on a course management system intended to…
