    Drupal Association Announces the Aaron Winborn Award

    This Tuesday, March 24, 2015, the Drupal community lost Aaron Winborn who was diagnosed with ALS a few years ago. In honor of Aaron, the Drupal Association and Angie Bryon recently announced the Aaron Winborn Award. The announcement reads:

    Announcing The Aaron Winborn Award to honor amazing community members

    In honor of long-time Drupal contributor Aaron Winborn (see his recent Community Spotlight), whose battle withAmyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) (also referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease) is coming to an end later today, theCommunity Working Group, with the support of the Drupal Association, would like to announce the establishment of the Aaron Winborn Award.

    This will be an annual award recognizing an individual who demonstrates personal integrity, kindness, and above-and-beyond commitment to the Drupal community. It will include a scholarship and stipend to attend DrupalCon and recognition in a plenary session at the event. Part of the award will also be donated to the special needs trust to support Aaron's family on an annual basis.

    Thanks to Hans Riemenschneider for the suggestion, and the Drupal Association executive board for approving this idea and budget so quickly. We feel this award is a fitting honor to someone who gave so much to Drupal both on a technical and personal level.

    Thank you so much to Aaron for sharing your personal journey with all of us. It’s been a long journey, and a difficult one. You and your family are all in our thoughts.

  • CMS Industry Working Together to Standardize Personalized Web and Digital Experience

    Standardizing personal experience sounds impersonal, doesn't it? Yet, that's what we're talking about here and there are plenty of software folks believing it's the right time for such an effort. When companies manage or utilize a number of systems involved with customer experience management, there is a need for those systems to transfer data from one system to the next. It is a huge challenge for CIOs, trying to streamline heterogeneous technologies and the data and transactions flowing from each solutions from their information system, while at the same time avoiding losing control over the collected data.

    Working together, Jahia and Enonic have launched a new project at the OASIS international consortium to develop a standard that will enable the creation, management and delivery of personalized web and digital experiences. This initiative lead to the creation of the OASIS Context Server (CXS) Technical Committee (TC). Think of this effort similar to what brought us Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) but instead of a standard for content, we're talking about a standard for personalized data.

  • Squashing bugs with Joomla 3.4.1

    Squashing bugs with Joomla 3.4.1

    CMS Report doesn't usually mention software point releases that only fixes bugs and brings no features to the CMS users. However, I screwed up last month. I failed to mention the February release of Joomla 3.4. So let me make up for that oversight by mentioning the release of Joomla 3.4.1. With 3.4.1, Joomla's developers have resolved nearly 150 issues with Joomla 3.4.
