250,000 downloads


2009 was a very positive year for our download statistics: we surpassed 250,000 downloads!

In 2010 we look forward to growing that number significantly.

Our work on SilverStripe v2.4 is almost complete and many of its new features are designed to make our software even more attractive in an even wider range of uses and environments. For instance, supporting SQL Server and Postgres databases significantly improves on SilverStripe's compatibility, and makes it an attractive option for customers who have not previously considered it. We look forward to maintaining our focus on the needs of our users and increasing market share accordingly.
