Dear Adrien,

Please add CubicWeb to the directory at www.cmsmatrix.org and suggest them to expand the features checklist they use to compare CMSs to include SW technologies.

Thanks also for answering both Leo's and my similar question two and a half months ago.
With Drupal that now makes two (2) CMSs that in some form support SW, versus 800 + non-SW CMSs.

Or are there more that do NOT appear on the list on the cmsmatrix.org site?

I understand that Plone is also increasingly semantic web enabled, mostly because of the fact that agencies such as e.g. NASA use both Plone (and Python) and the Semantic Web and the need to integrate applications and platforms in research.

Still a long way to go in making SW technologies optional or standard in mainstream CMSs.

Hi there,

Sorry for the (very) late response.

Let me suggest http://www.cubicweb.org/ 

The project started 8 years ago, and is now released under LGPL since december 
2008. It is very mature and stable (used in production in quite a few 
places), and still being developed. You'll find a short summary on the

All those features are available. A few other semantic thingies should be here 
really soon (like OWL or FOAF support).

CubicWeb support tags. It has a high-level query language, named RQL
which is not that different from SPARQL. You can find some doc / examples 
here : http://www.cubicweb.org/doc/en/C040-rql.en.html
