ASP.NET MVC is a new framework from Microsoft for building professional websites using the model-view-controller pattern. Kooboo CMS is the first CMS based on ASP.NET MVC. This new MVC framework makes the modular development easier than ever by using Microsoft technology. It provides native supports for SEO, better unit testing, and many other possibilities.

Kooboo CMS was first released in August 2009 at codeplex.com as a Chinese contribution to the open source community. The creative JavaScript-based user interface, and Kooboo’s unique solution to the multilingual problem makes this CMS a reliable solution for many multinational companies. It has been adapted by multiple organizations in France, the Netherlands, and other countries, and was recently accepted into the Microsoft Web Application Gallery as a content management software.

Kooboo CMS provides a multi-site and multilingual solution for large, international organizations. Translating multilingual websites is not simply about translation of text content; it also entails the ability to fully localize all website elements. By introducing the Inheritance concept from Object-Oriented Programming into site development, Kooboo CMS is the perfect solution to this long-standing problem.
