You may have noticed a few changes around here. After roughly two years of work I have finally reached a milestone on the second version of my content management system, Gatherer. After Google changed everything with the introduction of Google+, it broke the way the old version worked. It was time to bring everything up to date anyway.
While based on the same technologies, GCMS v2 is almost a complete rewrite of its predecessor. It now uses the entire Zend Framework application stack, the new Smarty 3 templating engine, and the HTML 5/CSS 3 Twitter Bootstrap template. As before, GCMS has the ability to automatically import feeds from RSS or ATOM but can now also import from Google+.
The code is completely open source under the LGPL3 license and is now hosted on GitHub. I still consider it in a beta stage at this point but it should be largely functional. Feel free to send along those pull requests!
