Many of you have inquired about our content management system, called Silva, asking if we’ll be getting a new one during the redesign. For some of you, the prospect of a new system is exciting. For others, the prospect is terrifying.

In light of that, Web Services is working to create a win-win for both groups. We won’t be getting rid of Silva during this redesign. However, we’ll be making some drastic improvements—starting with a upgrade sometime this summer that will fix and improve a number of baseline features.

Later this year, we’ll roll out larger changes to the core of Silva. Please check back for announcements about these upcoming changes. I think you’ll find that in the end we’ll have a much improved content management system.
