SWCMS Releases Beta 2 and Roadmap to 1.0!

Social Web Content Management System (SWCMS), a fork of the popular Pligg social news project, continues to show its significant forward momentum. First sign of life comes from the release of SWCMS Beta 2. Beta 2 is a significant step forward over the code SWCMS forked from and includes:

  • Increased sanitization of input across the codebase (security).
  • Rectification of numerous bugs, including undefined index errors (stability).
  • Removal of most modules from the core to offer a more streamlined product (stability/security).
  • Inclusion of a new module store/repository from which you can download free modules and automatically install them into your instance of SWCMS (feature).
  • Code reorganization that streamlines and clarifies the codebase.
