Mambo wins best OSS at Aussie LinuxWorld
A panel of industry professionals at the LinuxWorld Australia conference in Sydney has named the Mambo content management system “Best Open Source Software Solution”. This is the third time Mambo software has won the award and brings the number of awards received in the last two years to six.
“The Team is honored to receive this recognition,” said Ric Shreves, Director of Advocacy for the Mambo Foundation. “A lot of people work very hard to create and sustain this project and six awards in two years is a persuasive testament to the fact that the team consistently delivers world class software” added Shreves.
Martin Brampton, the leader of the Mambo core development team, says: “With all the disruption and confusion created by the fork of our codeset last year, we’re very pleased to see that industry professionals recognise that Mambo continues to set the standard within the open source world. This award comes just as we are about to release version 4.6 of the system and right on the eve of the five year anniversary of the release of Mambo under the GPL licence.”
The LinuxWorld event in Sydney was the first time the open source trade show and conference has been held in Australia.
Mambo edged out the new Alfresco Content Management System to win the award.
Mambo was previously named “Best Open Source Software Solution” at LinuxWorld San Francisco and at LinuxWorld Boston in 2005.
