Acquia Previews Drupal’s Commercial Twin

As we reported in December, the popular open-source Web publishing system Drupal has a new corporate home, Boston-based Acquia, where Drupal originator Dries Buytaert has joined as CTO. Today at the Drupalcon conference at Boston’s Convention and Expo Center, the company unveiled more details about its promised plans for a commercially-supported version of Drupal. Code-named “Carbon,” the product is expected to be available in the second half 2008 and will consist of the entire Drupal 6 code base—including modules for web content management, single or multi-user blogs, wiki collaboration, discussion forums, user-generated content, and social networking—plus subscription-based maintenance and support options.
