If you follow us carefully, you have probably already seen this screencast of Apostrophe
, our open source content management system built in the Symfony PHP Web Framework
. You also probably know that we have built many sites with it at Duke University (Trinity College
, Theater Studies
, Evolutionary Anthropology
, etc) and others like the Kimberton Waldorf School
, the Environmental Management Assistance Program
, and Diversified Community Services
. Since it is an open source project, other teams have used Apostrophe to power their sites to provide easy content management, as well.
You may be wondering why we haven't made an official 1.0 release to date?
The answer is simply that every time we were going to do that, we decided that it could use one more cool feature or could be re-factored in this way or that. No regrets, though. For this first official 1.0 release, we have done so many under-the-hood changes and updates that we are glad we waited.
I wanted to post to let you know that we will be sharing screencasts and screenshots of features over the next few days leading up to the release (and beyond). Hold on to your hat and get ready for the ride.
Coincidently, we are timing this release so that it was ready for Symfony Live
. Tom will be in attendance spreading the good word. If you are planning on being there, drop us a line so Tom can buy you a drink.
