Zikula “combines the best of a solid API and object library, with cross database compatibility, templating, security and performance.

Two packages are available for download: Core, which contains just those modules required for the system to run, and Full, which contains all those modules currently maintained by the Zikula development team.

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

PostNuke becomes Zikula

June 5th, 2008 No comments


Shortly before its seventh birthday the PostNuke project, born as a fork of PHP-Nuke, has been renamed. It’s now called the Zikula Application Framework.

A few commenters noted the resemblance of Zikula’s new name and logo with the name and logo of the very popular Joomla! CMS and Web Application Framework. Others applauded the end of the rather long rebranding process, hoping to concentrate now on new release development. Many more expressed their satisfaction with the new name and branding, which denotes the project willingness to be part of the Web 2.0 era, moving away from the *Nuke past.

The first accomplishment of the Zikula team will be the release of Zikula 1.0.0 (formerly PostNuke 0.8). For details, please read Welcome the Zikula Application Framework.
