Welcome to ImpressCMS
ImpressCMS is a community developed Content Management System for easily building and maintaining a dynamic web site. Keep your web site up to date with this easy to use, secure and flexible system.
It is the ideal tool for a wide range of users: from business to community users, from large enterprises to people who want a simple, easy to use blogging tool. ImpressCMS is a powerful system that gets outstanding results!
For reasons of better exposure and more availability of development services for open source projects on github, ImpressCMS has migrated its main development repository from Assembla to Github.
At ImpressCMS, we take pride in following good coding practices, both to produce a stable, easy-to-use CMS, and in providing the most secure environment for your websites. In this day and age, high-assurance security is something that we have to start thinking about. As a community, we’ve done our best as far as code security; now, we’re looking to advance to the next level.
We are now working with SecurifyLabs, a company that specializes in open-source assessment and remediation support approached us. Their collaborations include open-source initiatives such as Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware, ElkArte and BigBlueButton. Having SecurifyLabs as our security partner will be a game changer for our entire community.
ImpressCMS 2.0 alpha 5 is now available.The files for this release can be found on the Development Packages page.
7 years ago (on 9 January 2008, to be exact) the first beta release of ImpressCMS was announced and since then we have released 26 versions of ImpressCMS - from 1.0.0 to 1.3.7! We are averaging around 4 releases a year, which is a respectable number, considering the work that goes into them. Currently, we're still supporting 2 main branches - 1.2 and 1.3 - while developing in our 2.0 branch.
Over the course of the year, we switched our hosting to Siteground, and they have been a very good partner for us. We also did a quick redesign and relaunch of the Addons site to prepare for a merging of our different properties into a single, updated site.
We had 2 related vulnerability reports we addressed this year, which has prompted us to be even more diligent in our security efforts. We have joined oCert Security Response and are working with another vendor that will provide us with security scans based on community support (watch for an upcoming announcement).
All-in-all, year 7 was a good year and we're looking ahead to an even better year in 2015!
