What's in for January 2014 with Open-Source CMS ?

Posted By Gerrit Veeder In Digital Strategy 12/23/2013

As the new year quickly approaches, it’s time to think about and understand what's coming down the pathway, especially in the Open-Source CMS space. In his recent article, Anthony Myers of CMSWire takes us down that path of what to expect this January.

Here is a quick snippet of the article.

Alfresco
It's been a year since Doug Dennerline took over as CEO of Alfresco, so 2014 could be a big year for the company. It won't likely be IPO big, but we do know Dennerline wants to focus on the company's products, including fundraising in lieu of a public offering.

Drupal/Acquia
As the commercial services provider for the Drupal family of content management tools, Acquia had a pretty good 2013 and could itself be headed for the public markets sooner rather than later. Most recently, Open Atrium, a Drupal based online collaboration system, debuted a 2.0 version, and before that a system called Commerce Cloud debuted to unify social and shopping.

Concrete5
The Portland, Ore.-based Concrete5 team has moved into a new office, and it has also added a gamification model to its community page. Developers get points for helping people out, submitting their work or promoting others' work.

WordPress
Wordpress’s next release is due in April, 2014. As its not been long for version 3.8 to be released with a new look and feel for both the front and back end, new design elements have been put in place to help make administrators lives easier.
