  * Improved UTF-8 support.

About Krang

Krang is an open source web publishing/content management system, particularly well suited
for high volume magazine-style web sites.  Originally developed in 2003 by Primedia, Krang
is currently used by hundreds of well-known web sites including New York Magazine, Motor Trend,
Soap Opera Digest, In-Fisherman, Guns & Ammo, Florida Sportsman, Game & Fish,,
Power & Motor Yacht, and many more.

Krang provides a powerful and easy to use story and media editing environment for website
editors, as well as a complete template development environment for web designers. On the
back-end, Perl programmers can customize Krang to control the data entered in the story editor
and add code to drive the templates to build output. Krang can be enhanced with add-ons containing
new skins and other new features. Krang easily handles large data sets and can manage multiple
websites in a single installation.
