PostNuke: The Phoenix Release (0.760-RC2=>x)  
  
PostNuke is an open source, open developement content management system  
(CMS). PostNuke started as a fork from PHPNuke (http://www.phpnuke.org) and  
provides many enhancements and improvements over the PHP-Nuke system. PostNuke  
is still undergoing development but a large number of core functions are now  
stabilising and a complete API for third-party developers is now in place.  
If you would like to help develop this software, please visit our homepage
