The Mambo Team announces the final release of the Mambo 4.5.x series of releases. This marks the end of an era for one of the web's most popular Free Open Source Software (FOSS) Content Management Systems (CMS). The enormous success of Mambo 4.5.x led to many forks, some successful, some less so. "Mambo 4.5 has been a great CMS, a good framework, and a great school to many of us", says Ozgur Cem Sen, Core Team Leader of Mambo.
"We have been overwhelmed with the positive feedback we've received for the Mambo 4.6.x series, initialy released over 16 months ago", continues Mr. Sen. "We encourage all Mambo users to upgrade to the latest stable release of Mambo 4.6."
During the last several months, the Mambo Team has been working very hard on the upcoming Mambo 4.7, as well as maintaining and doing minor development on Mambo 4.6.x. The Mambo Team also has been discussing Mambo 5. "It is time to look forward, and focus our efforts towards growth", says Nicolas Steenhout, Secretary of the Mambo Foundation, Inc.
Project Leader, Chad Auld says that this is both a sad and an exciting time for Mambo.
"It is always sad to see software reaching the end of development," Chad says, "Mambo 4.5 has been with us for many years". He adds, "Mambo 4.5's time has passed and Mambo is moving forward to an even better future. With 4.7 getting closer to release and planning underway for Mambo 5.0, we have exciting things coming."
Team Mambo supports those sentiments and wishes to thank everyone who contributed to Mambo 4.5. This is an exciting step forward for Mambo and one which the Team hopes will be supported by the community.
