EdWeb CMS Release 3 delivered

This is an update on the project to replace the current Polopoly Content Management System (CMS). The new CMS EdWeb is now in release 3. There are another 2 releases planned in the project, at the end of May and beginning of August.

The migration of sites from Polopoly to EdWeb started back in December. The migration is handled through a separate project (https://www.projects.ed.ac.uk/project/uwp010), after each release a new set of sites are migrated to EdWeb. The migration process will continue until the end of 2015.

In addition to the central CMS, the project has also delivered a UoE EdWeb Drupal distribution which can be hosted and developed independently from the central CMS. Further details are on the distribution site: http://dist.drupal.is.ed.ac.uk/project/uoe_distribution.  

The project website and Wiki are kept up to date with information about the development progress, support and migration plans etc.
