"As a further illustration of its commitment to the Open Source
community, MandrakeSoft announces its support to "PHP-Nuke", an
Open Source development project resulting in the creation of a new
killer Internet application specifically designed to facilitate the
establishment of Web based communities."
"The "PHP-Nuke" project was initiated by Francisco Burzi in the
Summer of 2000, a talented young computer technologist currently
living in Venezuela. The latest version, "PHP-Nuke 4.4", provides a
highly flexible and customizable set of tools to help build on-line
communities, enabling users to share news, submit comments and
discuss articles and ideas via a Web based portal-like solution.
Some of its main features include Web based administration and
survey building functionality, customizable user boxes, an in-built
moderation mechanism etc."
"Supporting 23 languages, PHP-Nuke has already been downloaded
by more than 140,000 users in 6 months and is used by hundreds of
Web sites worldwide. By joining the MandrakeSoft team, the
"PHP-Nuke" project will not only benefit from the financial support
needed for its continuing improvement going forward, but will also
receive full technical support including Web hosting and
download mirrors, and benefit from MandrakeSoft's
communications network to further raise its profile with users
