osCommerce 2.2 Milestone 2 Update Released Last November

osCommerce recommended a few months ago that osCommerce users update to the latest version, osCommerce 2.2 Milestone 2 051112 Update.

Make your own Wikipedia

Thanks to Line 56 News, we came across MediaWiki . MediaWiki is the same wiki application that the infamous Wikipedia site also uses.  How can you argue with success?

While we are a little unclear as to the terms and license of the software, it is free software.  This application is well worth the look for those interested in installing a Wiki on their server.

Joomla one of many reaching critical mass

The folks at Joomla.org continue to point out the success they have had since leaving the confines of the Mambo Content Management System (CMS).  While we are glad to see their numbers are up, we believe that Joomla isn't alone in seeing those numbers climb.  Just yesterday the folks at Drupal.org was making the same claim during their release of Drupal 4.7.

CMS Report has observed that Web CMS in general are seeing an increase in widespread adoption by the masses. Our theory as to why this is happening? We believe that while CMS has reached critical mass in Canada, Europe, and Asia...it has only been in recent years that CMS are being understood and adopted by those in the United States.  Perhaps early adopter of the Web, the United States is only now ready for the paradigm shift currently taking place on the Internet with static HTML pages being fully replaced by CMS applications.  These are just some early observations for future discussion here at CMS Report.  Stay tuned!

Drupal 4.7.0 Has Been Released

Early this Monday morning Drupal 4.7 was released.  Since then, about every Drupal blog from Belgium (where Drupal founder Dries is from) to South Dakota in the United States (where CMS Report is based) has talked about the release.  Here at CMSReport.com we've been testing Drupal 4.7 since Beta 1 and have been very pleased to see it through a mature released.  The following "press release" was posted at Drupal.org

After more than a year of development we are ready to release Drupal 4.7.0 to the world. More than five years, 13 major releases, 30+ servicing firms employing 100+ Drupal professionals, 300+ third party modules, and over 55,000+ Drupal powered sites later, Drupal 4.7.0 is finally here and it rocks!

The Beginning of CMSReport.com

The following was submitted on our sister site, Like that Idea on December 21, 2005.

For awhile now, I've wanted to build a Website focused on reporting today's news in the world of content management systems (CMS). In simple terms, a CMS is a system used for storing, managing, organizing, and displaying content. There are all kinds of CMS out there, with one that you're most likely familiar with, the Web CMS (we use one here at Like that Idea). While a CMS is more than just software, among the computer techies it is usually the software that is talked about most.
