in with a bang

Well ladies and gentlemen, I’m proud to announce that Whisper is back and now has a new name. lucidCMS is the new Whisper product and now features a powerful mySQL backend with a practically totally re-written PHP engine as well. The code is leaner, meaner, and cleaner and is just really fantastic from what I’ve seen so far. The database backend really gives the core developers, as well as plugin authors, a TON of flexibility on the things that can be done now.

The product is still being touted as pre-alpha and won’t be ready for an actual release for several more weeks. When it’s ready, I’d expect it to pick up a pretty good market share in the CMS sector.
