Three Top Open Source Content Management Systems
Packt Publishing today announced the
winner of the 2006 Open Source Content Management System Award as
Joomla!, with Drupal
and Plone coming second and third respectively.
70 different Open Source Content Management Systems were nominated for the award
with the top five being selected for the final by visitors to www.PacktPub.com
and judges from The Open Source Collective, MySQL, the Eclipse Foundation.
Joomla! is the youngest CMS of the five finalists having been forked by the then
Mambo development team in August 2005. Joomla! was chosen due its ease of
installation and use along with the active development and community that
supports the project. Coming in a very close second place was Drupal which was
commended for its ease of use and exceptional documentation. In third place came
Plone. Built on the Zope platform, Plone is very different to the other CMS's in
the top five and was noted for its steep learning curve. However it was praised
by the judges for its power, flexibility, the customization it offered and its
integration with LDAP.
