A panel of industry professionals at the LinuxWorld Australia conference in Sydney has named the Mambo Content Management System “Best Open Source Software Solution.” The award marks the third time the Mambo software has won the coveted award and brings the number of awards received in the last two years to six. Representatives of the event coordinators and sponsor Builder.com.au announced the award on 28 March. Judging was done by a panel of industry experts.
“The Team is honored to receive this recognition,” stated Ric Shreves, Director of Advocacy for the Mambo Foundation. “A lot of people work very hard to create and sustain this project and six awards in two years is a persuasive testament to the fact that the team consistently delivers world class software,” added Shreves who was on hand to accept the award together with members of Team Mambo and Mambo Communities.
Martin Brampton, the leader of the Mambo Core Development Team notes “what with all the disruption and confusion created by the fork of our codeset last year, we’re very pleased to see that industry professionals recognize that Mambo continues to set the standard within the Open Source world.” He adds “this award comes just as we are about to release version 4.6 of the system and right on the eve of the five year anniversary of the release of Mambo under the GPL license. There are plenty of reasons for the Team and our users to celebrate.”
The LinuxWorld event in Sydney was the first time this global Linux and Open Source trade show and conference has been held in Australia. The show ran three days at the Sydney Convention Center and was well-attended. Industry leaders Novell, IBM, Sun, RedHat and others were in attendance and displaying products. Mambo edged out the new Alfresco Content Management System to win the award.
Mambo was previously named “Best Open Source Software Solution” at LinuxWorld San Francisco and at LinuxWorld Boston in 2005. The software was also named “Best Total Industry Solution” at LinuxWorld Boston in 2005: Team Mambo will be attending the LinuxWorld Boston event the week of April 3, but the group is foreclosed from competing for awards at this years’ event. Users who wish to meet members of the development team have been invited to drop by the trade show.
