This week MODX Evolution officially became Evolution CMS, with a new website and documentation. This is meant to clarify that Evolution is a separate project, with a separate project leadership, roadmap, security team and other processes.

This was already the case, but is now much clearer with a new name, branding, and website.

While this move may come as a surprise to some, this is just the next step in a process started in 2016 to give Evolution more autonomy. Key Evolution contributors and the MODX Advisory Board have been involved in those discussions.

This move gives the Evolution team full credit for the project, and also provides independence to run their project without being held back by MODX. Giving Evolution its own dedicated website will ensure the CMS and its leadership team gets the visibility and independent voice it deserves.

For now the Evolution forums and extras are still on
