Social Web CMS 1.0 Released.

Social Web Content Management System (SWCMS) has released 1.0 of their open source social news content management system. SWCMS forked from Pligg after the 9.9.0 release and since then has released hundreds of security fixes, scores of bug fixes, and worked rapidly on simplifying and modularizing the entire codebase.

You can read the full, celebratory announcement on the official SWCMS blog. Additionally, they have established a long-term roadmap for development of SWCMS which includes a number of significant feature enhancements such as elgg integration, rewritten search functionality, and extensive documentation.

For those who have been using Pligg and considering how to move forward, SWCMS is an excellent alternative with easy instructions on moving over (simplified due to SWCMS being a fork of the Pligg codebase).
