Description: 

Drupal is a multi-faceted CMS. Originally designed as a collective blog, it has a wide variety of possible applications today: from the corporate website to the community portal, Drupal does it all! It was designed in the 2000s by Dries Buytaert and has enjoyed worldwide success ever since. An enormous community has formed around the product.

The main strength of this CMS lies in its expandability. It can easily host numerous complementary modules (forums, photo galleries, polls, forms, newsletters, messaging, chats, surveys, online payments, shared calendars and more). In particular, it has well designed, highly appreciated modules developed by the community, that make it particularly well suited to corporate social networks. Version 7 has won over a multitude of large companies and the product is now considered to be more complete and better balanced. Version 8 is scheduled for release in 2014. It will be built in part on the French framework, Symfony. As far as improvments are concerned, contributions are focused on the 6 following initiatives:

Configuration Management
Mobile
Blocks++
Multilingual
Views module in core
Web Services
Drupal is published under the GNU GPL and is 100% open source. Support is available from Acquia (www.acquia.com).
Technically speaking, Drupal is built around LAMP technologies (PHP and MySQL in particular).
