One year ago on Feb 1st 2009 Cotonti went public with v0.0.2. With the approach of Open Source Software, a lot of enthusiasm and hard work we have delivered a lot of new features and improvements to this CMS of rich history and traditions. And it is not just new features, as we managed to establish rock-solid stability of our currently available branch Genoa.
Today we celebrate 1 year of publicity with a new stable release Genoa 0.6.6 which brings fixes for 17 bugs detected within last 3 months and an update of markItUp bbcode editor.

You are probably bored by bugfixes and a lack of new features. Currently we are working hard on the next generation of Cotonti called Siena. It will include lots of new things such as: a new modern default skin, installer/updater script, dedicated skins for Administration area, customizable string resources instead of hardcoded HTML, built-in AJAX support, SMTP support, improved PFS, improved PM, improved Administration, SEO improvements, a lot of functionality improvements in all modules, a new Cache API, simplified hooks and improved extrafields for developers and lots more.
If you are excited by Siena and want to see it live as soon as possible, then you can help us and your own dream:
- We are constantly looking for skilled developers. Read more, send a request, promote yourself!
- Make a donation to give the development a boost. You can even specify a ticket which you want to reward for.
- Contribute to Documentation Workgroup and help us writing documentation for Cotonti.
- Make your own plugins, skins and submit other downloads. The more quality third-party additions are available, the more users are satisfied and time is saved for everyone.
- Get ready to an early testing stage. We'll start alpha testing in February and inform potential testers on Forums.
- Learn more about Cotonti and share your experience: you'll see it's a lot of fun!
