A new version of Concrete5 is now available. Here are some of the changes from the release announcement: We completely changed the way installation works so it is much easier to build a starting point. You can even install completely from the command line. We also took the time to rethink Scrapbooks which had evolved “organically” and had any number of issues. Now there’s Stacks which let you clump different blocks together into one reusable element. Permissions, versions - everything you’d expect from a concrete5 page all work on a Stack.… Read More →

concrete CMS was commercial software that went open source in late 2008, quickly winning project of the month on SourceForge and much attention from a community of open source fans used to dealing with painful user experiences and scattered code.
