After 6 months of hard work, we're proud to release Bolt 1.0 stable. Our "Sophisticated, lightweight & simple CMS" is now officially out of beta. Bolt is written in PHP, and uses either SQLite, MySQL or PostgreSQL as a database and it's built upon the Silex framework together with a number of Symfony components. If you're new to Bolt, we invite you to check out the front page of our site for a brief explanation and a slideshow with pretty pictures. Don't forget to check out our new showcase page, with screenshots of sites already running Bolt.

We've fixed (yet again) quite a few small issues since the last release, but no new noteworthy features have been introduced since the Release Candidate. To upgrade an existing install, or to setup a new one, just follow the instructions. When you do an upgrade, you will not overwrite your modified settings with the upgrade. You should still make a backup before doing an upgrade, though. Get the latest .tgz or .zip, or browse the folder with the distributions.

Now that "the big one point oh" is out of the door, we're about to start looking forward again. There are some plans to improve parts of the code, add remove features to stay true to our motto of being simple, and things like that. If you'd like to help out in any way, please get in touch, because we remain committed to creating an enjoyable product to build websites with.
