The release of concrete5.3.0 Japanese, and the launch of its web site

Usagi Project is pleased to announce the released of concrete 5.3.0 Japanese version, and the launch of our web site on April, 17, 2009 (JST). http://concrete5-japan.org Due to the language barrier between Japanese and English, Usagi Project made a decision to distribute the package separately from concrete5’s SourceForge account but through our SourceForge.jp account. If you are interested in using concrete5 Japanese, please visit our web site. We, Usagi Project, will closely keep in touch with the concrete5 core team to make sure that Japanese users continue to benefit from this wonderful CMS. We hope that we can make the world the better place together with the concrete5 core team! […]
