Their website is almost up and ready. The team says the website will not be open source for now. A lot of October CMS fans seems to have taken interest in **Winter CMS**.

It is indeed great to see this being so actively developed. It's always a shame when a project switches from Open Source to paid for models, it leaves so many people behind, struggling to find a solution to keep their projects going. I remember when Invision Board first went paid, the number of forums that had to stay on dated software because they couldn't afford their licensing costs was staggering. They've been extremely successful since the switch to paid software, and good on them for making it what it is today, but they definitely left some of their foundation behind in doing so. It's great that this project has taken a lot of that foundation and built something of their own. Best of luck to them!

@PGen98 They are doing the right thing. If they want to compete with OctoberCMS, they need to innovate as much as possible. Because OctoberCMS, paid or free is an established name and has a very stable ecosystem. People will think of using it that a fork that is less than 6 months old. That is how the industry works.

@Abhi I completely agree! If they want to establish themselves as a viable option, they have to get these features out to the public as quickly as possible and show that they are a player in the market. They'll gain a lot of traction just from being a fork or a popular CMS already, for those that want that free option, but to maintain their traction they have to prove that they are willing to put the work in, get new features and new releases out and be a real alternative.

One would have assumed that they will loose the battle for existence. But they come a long way.
