I'm surprised that #wintercms gets so little attention. I totally liked October cms (which I'd call more like a framework with a helpful UI than a cms). It is much more transparent for me than Wordpress, which evolved into a pushbutton -> ??? -> profit machine, where my amateur coding skills are insufficient to be in control.
So, October has recently went proprietary and was naturally forked to Winter, and I almost missed it.
