Yesterday we launched Miva Merchant 5, Mambo, UebiMiau and eAccelerator for new accounts. Existing clients may see Mambo, UebiMiau, and eAccelerator added to their control panel (Site Manager) as soon as today (for automatic install), but roll-out will be completed by the end of week.

Mambo is one of the most powerful Open Source Content Management Systems (CMS) on the planet. It is used all over the world for everything from simple websites to complex corporate applications. It is similar to PHPNuke and Geeklog.

UebiMiau is a solid web based e-mail (webmail) application that is replacing Neomail and IMP.

eAccelerator increases performance of PHP scripts by caching them in compiled state, so that the overhead of compiling is almost completely eliminated.
