Geeklog 1.4.0sr4

June 30th, 2006 No comments


To address the recently posted exploits for insecure installations and for the mcpuk file manager, “we are releasing Geeklog 1.4.0sr4.

In this release, we’ve removed the file manager altogether, so you will no longer be able to upload images through FCKeditor (this will be enabled again when we release Geeklog 1.4.1 with FCKeditor 2.3). We’ve also added additional protection against code execution in case of insecure installations but suggest that you really protect your Geeklog install properly as explained in the installation instructions and in the FAQ.

For details, please read the full release announcement.

MODx is a fork of Etomite; its Tech Preview 1.0 was released on April 21, 2005. MODx is licensed under the GNU GPL, is built in PHP, and uses a MySQL database backend.

If you’re a CSS designer or Ajax aficionado, this is the CMS for you; and if you like what you see today, you’ll love what’s coming.

Techies call MODx a Content Management Framework (CMF): equal parts custom web app builder and Content Management System (CMS). With a flexible API and a robust event override system, MODx makes building engaging web projects straightforward — or changing core functionality without hacking the core code possible. Custom tweaks won’t leave you pulling out your hair when it’s time to upgrade.

Etomite started as BCMS in 2003, and was known as Phase until September 2004. “Why should you choose Etomite over the other systems available? Well, it all depends on what you need a CMS for. Do you need to build a community with forums, user systems and the ability for your visitors to comment on every single piece of content in your site? Then Etomite is not the system you’re looking for (unless, of course, you write some fancy snippets or use the snippets in the forums to allow this).

Do you need a fast system, easy to install and use, that centers around content, with an intuitive user interface that lets you define exactly what your site should look like, with a growing yet dedicated community who really want to see Etomite make it big time? Then Etomite is the system you need.

The original creator of Etomite is Alex Butter, while Dean Steventon and Ralph Dahlgren are the current maintainers. Etomite is a PHP – MySQL application, and is released under the GPL (General Public License).

[CMS Made Simple]

After its initial release on July 1, 2004, CMS Made Simple could celebrate its second birthday with release 1.0, planned on July-August 2006 and featuring many improvements (update: version 1.0 has been released on September 10).

CMS Made Simple (CMSMS) can be installed via FTP, doesn’t require shell access and, according to user reviews, “makes it easy to set up a site and then hand it over to non-techies to maintain. Unlike other CMS packages, it isn’t over-complex, and it isn’t just for blogs. The drop-down site navigation menus are the icing on the cake: just so easy to use. There’s an excellent support forum too.

CMSMS is a PHP – MySQL application that relies on the Smarty Template Engine for templates, and on ADOdb Lite for the database abstraction layer. The license is GNU GPL (General Public License).

PostNuke “is software that creates an impressive, dynamic web site and provides the webmaster with a site they can administer with a minimal amount of HTML knowledge through a web browser.

PostNuke can do anything from traditional blog sites, to a community website with hundreds of users. PostNuke can scale to thousands of users but is just as easy to create a small website for friends and family.

PostNuke was started in July 2001 as a fork of PHP-Nuke, by John Cox, Greg Allan, Harry Zink, and Sean Finkle. One year later, the PostNuke software was 100% free of any legacy code.

PostNuke is a PHP – MySQL application, and is released under the GNU General Public License (GPL). PostNuke was renamed Zikula in June 2008.
