SilverStripe releases the framework from their CMS

Press release from: SilverStripe


6 September 2011

For immediate release


SilverStripe Ltd. is due to release SilverStripe CMS 3.0 in alpha in October and beta before Christmas. The biggest change to the current content management system will be the separation of the SilverStripe Framework as it’s own entity. The framework as a stable basis, formerly known as ‘Sapphire’, enables the developer to build more than just traditional websites but applications for any device and any purpose.

CMS 3.0 promises an improved user interface, a better technical platform and will embrace social media and mobile web applications

Product Marketing Manager Kerstin Schuman says that SilverStripe Ltd. is proud to give the framework a status of it’s own; it is a great tool to build anything a developer wants. The framework will now become a standalone member of the SilverStripe Suite, becoming downloadable as a separate development tool. The SilverStripe Suite comprises of the SilverStripe CMS, SilverStripe Framework, SilverStripe Site Monitor and supported SilverStripe modules.

Schuman says the release of the framework gives SilverStripe the opportunity to reach a new group of people who need more than just a CMS in order to build creative new web applications.

These changes mean that the SilverStripe site performance measuring tool, previously known as Dawn, will be renamed to SilverStripe Site Monitor.

SilverStripe CMS is an open source web content management system used by government organisations, businesses and non-profit organisations around the world. The CMS is an easy to customise power tool for professional web developers and easy to use for web content authors. With over 420,000 downloads and more than 5,500 active members in the online community the CMS is widely known and supported.

The CMS is written in PHP and can be used within a Linux, Windows or Apple environment. SilverStripe was the first Open Source CMS to be certified by Microsoft, in May 2010.

Tim Copeland, Sam Minnée and Sigurd Magnusson founded SilverStripe Ltd in 2000 in Wellington, New Zealand. In 2006 SilverStripe decided to release the CMS under the open source BSD license. The decision to do so was based on the idea that open source simply produces better software through the support and input of the community.

Code, content and design are separated from each other within the CMS, which makes teamwork more productive. Along with the CMS, clients can also use the site monitoring tool Dawn, which was developed by SilverStripe Ltd, in order to monitor site performance. This is especially important for companies in which website downtime would result in major revenue loss.

SilverStripe Ltd offers highly customised web solutions based on the SilverStripe CMS and framework, with customers including local clients like Air New Zealand, AA, Metlink and a number of regional, district and city councils. SilverStripe has also gained traction overseas and was the platform of choice to run the US Democratic National Convention website that supported Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign.

Today, SilverStripe has about 40 staff in its Wellington, Auckland and Melbourne offices, as well as partners throughout the world.
