Introducing Strelin CMS - a fork of Joomla 1.5

Strelin CMS is a new fork of the popular open source content management system, Joomla!. Forked from version 1.5, this new CMS is described as having an advanced ACL that Joomla! currently is lacking.

The first beta was released on July 12, 2010.

This is a very new project and right now, there's minimal information available on the site about why they decided to fork Joomla! as opposed to contribute to it directly.

As far as we can tell, there is currently very little to differentiate it from from Joomla! (other than an ACL option which is forthcoming in Joomla 1.6) and the website needs quite a bit of work, but regardless, we wanted our readers to know that it's out there.
