I have the pleasure of introducing a new module that we created here at the SilverStripe HQ - The Document Management System (DMS) module.
A few years ago, community member Aaron Calino (UncleCheese) created the Data Object Manager module for SilverStripe 2.

Geeks love numbers, and colourful T-shirts. So this blog post is about both. Numbers help us to measure and compare. For our open source product, lots of curves are pointing upwards these days, which is fantastic news. And we'd like to reward the community for the significant increases we see in most of these numbers – but more on this later.Read full post
