MiaCMS was an open source content management system. As of July 2009, it merged with the Aliro CMS project[2] and is no longer being developed.


MiaCMS started as a fork of Mambo.

  • April 2008: Four former Mambo core developers fork Mambo and form MiaCMS. The founding members are Chad Auld, Ozgur Cem Sen, Richard Ong, and Al Warren. The initial fork is based on a Mambo 4.6.3 SVN snapshot just prior to their 4.6.4 release.
  • May 2008: The first release, MiaCMS 4.6.4, is launched.[3]
  • June 2008: The 2nd release, MiaCMS 4.6.5, is launched.[4]
  • September 2008: Version 4.6.5 SP1 was released. This version was the 4.6.5 release prepacked with the SP1 patch so users would not have to install and then immediately patch.
  • September 2008: Mambo core developer Neil Thompson joined the MiaCMS core development team.
  • October 2008: MiaCMS tied for 3rd place in the Packt Publishing 2008 Open Source CMS Awards competition[5] under the "Most Promising Open Source CMS" category. Auld was named in Packt Publishing's 2008 list of "Most Valued People from Open Source Content Management Systems[6]".
  • January 2009: Version 4.8 was released. This release included OpenID support (versions 1 & 2), content versioning, a new JavaScript architecture, a Yahoo! User Interface (YUI) upgrade (from 2.5.2 to 2.6.0), an enhancement to the Related Articles module, new versions of the Byte & MOStlyCE editors, and bug fixes and other enhancements.[7]
  • June 2009: MiaCMS announced a merger with the Aliro CMS.[8]
  • July 2009: MiaCMS 4.9 was released as the final version of MiaCMS.[9]
