Ghost is a new open-source blogging platform that is much more lightweight (and prettier if you ask me) than WordPress. It’s a rapidly growing content management cms, especially for blogs.

Ghost CMS is constantly developed, and new features are being added regularly. When we release a new update for a theme, you will get an email with useful information about the update, like what is new in this version (features added, bugs fixed..) as well as a list of files that were changed in this version (new files, updated files, deleted files). This information can also be found in each theme’s changelog.
