Hotaru 0.8.1 Beta is available for download. This version adds extra plugin hooks for new plugins. Read more about it here.
Note: As a beta version, there are likely to be issues that we haven't discovered yet. Therefore, if you choose to use Hotaru CMS for a live website, you do so at your own risk.
Hotaru CMS has been developed with PHP 5.2.6, MySQL 5.0.51a and phpMyAdmin 2.11.6. If you find it works on older versions of PHP, MySQL and phpMyAdmin, please let us know so we can update these requirements accordingly.
Note: Hotaru CMS is not yet compatible with the new PHP 5.3.
