RunCms site lost

September 8th, 2006 No comments


As explained in A new start from scratch for RunCms, the former RunCms website administrator left the project a few weeks ago, and somehow the site database was lost.

The remaining project members are rebuilding the site from scratch, and this probably will take some time. For the moment, the download section has been restored and RunCms version 1.4.1 is available, together with two fixpacks released on September 5 and 6.

In the meantime, it appears that the former RunCms administrator is going to continue development on a newly created parallel branch, named RUNetCMS. The post Welcome to our new site announces: “RunCms is evolving and is now entering level 3 … RUNetCMS will be your next CMS”.
