In Q2, the Hippo CMS team continued their online usability testing. The gathered input was used for the 7.4 release expected on August 4, which arrives in conjunction with a new demo site to demonstrate its new functionality. This demo contains everything you need to run to evaluate Hippo CMS. It comes with fully functional Hippo CMS and a pre-configured demo website (Hippo Go Green).
This demo also showcases several Hippo CMS plugins:
