"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 worldwide."
