Helsinki, May 5th 2004 -- The Midgard Open Source Community celebrates the
5th anniversary of the Content Management Framework project. Midgard 1.0.0
was launched in May 8th 1999 by Jukka Zitting and Henri Bergius.

There will be a Midgard developer meeting in Poznan, Poland on May 8th 2004 to celebrate the anniversary. However, as the members of the Midgard Project are spread internationally it is impossible for many to participate. Instead, everybody can raise a beer glass on Saturday for Midgard and the community that made it possible.

A special "5th anniversary" shirt is available in the Midgard CafePress store, thanks to Tony Lee.

The original Midgard 1.x code base is starting to show age, and the developer meeting will host debate on the future strategy, code named Ragnaroek. People unable to participate are welcomed to join the discussions on the developer mailing list and Midgard IRC channel.
