EPiServer CMS getting closer

The very popular content management system EPiServer is about to get a major upgrade to version 5. For some reason the name has been chosen as “EPiServer CMS”, but at least it’s better than “EPiServer 2007” or “EPiServer Ultimate”.

The first release candidate version was released during spring and I’ve been working a lot with the RC3 version during the summer. Last week, the RC4 version of EPiServer CMS was released and it might actually be the final release if we’re lucky.

I have written a small summary of my experiences so far: EPiServer CMS närmar sig

If you need a CMS and enjoy working with ASP.NET, EPiServer might be your baby. It has several issues and is a bit rough around the edges, but it’s very configurable and flexible. Definitely one of the most enjoyable CMS I’ve worked with.
