Plone.net has a new home, some new features and a bright future.
The last two months have seen some big changes on Plone.net, which showcases Plone consulting providers, websites, case studies and media buzz around the world. Here's a quick update:
As of early February 2009, Plone.net has a new home. Thanks to a generous in-kind donation from Pilot Systems, Plone.net is now running on its dedicated virtual server under the watchful eye of the Pilot Systems hosting team. Big thanks to David Sapiro, Gaël Le Mignot, Jérôme Petazzoni for making this happen.
