John Long has announced the initial release of Radiant, the simple and elegant CMS that is planned to eventually power the redesigned reincarnation of the official Ruby website, ruby-lang.org.
You can take a look at some screenshots, check out the demo, read the source, subscribe to the mailing list, and follow along on the weblog.
Underneath the sheets, John is using his custom templating library Radius, on top of which he’s implemented his so called Behaviors. To help you dig into such features, John has provided some starting points for learning Radiant as well as a quickstart for Radius. If you want to jump aboard and help the development, he’s providing some tips on how you can contribute.

Things called a CMS are notoriously complex. Cheers for keeping it simple.
