Mura CMS is a popular content management system written in ColdFusion. (But since you’re reading this on the Adobe ColdFusion Blogs site, you probably already knew that.) While Mura CMS was originally a commercial open source product, it was re-licensed as a closed source application with the release of Mura CMS v10 in 2020. There are forked open source projects based on the last open source release of Mura CMS, including Masa CMS – which is actively maintained.
