ImpressCMS 1.3.3 RC - Download and Test Now!

Moving forward with improvements in the 1.3 version of ImpressCMS, 1.3.3 RC has been released by the developers for broader testing in the community. There has been some of the most active and rigorous testing on this release, as it is moving closer to bridging the gap to ImpressCMS 2.0. This is still classified as a release candidate and you are cautioned to exercise due diligence and test offline on a copy of your website.
