The biggest change in the latest release is the improved support for web farms, enabling mojoPortal to support more robust implementations.

Packt Publishing has announced their nominees for the 2011 Open Source Awards. This year, mojoPortal is a finalist in the category of Best Open Source CMS. mojoPortal is the only .NET-based CMS finalist; the other finalists for the category include Drupal, Joomla, Plone and Silverstripe. It is quite a testament to mojoPortal’s popularity to be included with such well-known company.
Just in time for this nomination, mojoPortal.com has undergone a re-design of its own. The re-design is a joint venture between DM2 Creative and i7MEDIA, and was implemented flawlessly.
