As stated by C1's Hans Christian Kromann, "To further help the startup process we have created new starters sites that let the developers build layout templates using only ASP.NET Razor or any of the other supported languages. We have also made two new free packages that improve the users ability to engage with their own communitys though user comments or feedback-features on their websites. And we have made our debut on the premiere Q&A site for developers stack Overflow where our community can ask questions and share knowledge with each other."
This week one of Microsoft's most highly ranked open source CMSs, Composite C1, made an announcement stating that it now includes full cloud hosting support using Windows Azure. By using Windows Azure, users can reap the benefits of cloud computing, including scalable global hosting, low startup costs and enhanced security.
