All votes were counted and the envelopes had been opened. All the results of 2009 Open Source CMS Award sponsored by Packt Publishing are out.

While Joomla! is still quite popular among site developer, this year's award results show Drupal has rooted deeper as the top player of open source CMS and WordPress has gained large followers as a CMS solution. Other open source CMS projects also mature rapidly and is aiming to catch up with the top ranked players.

Joomla! this year entered two award competitions, one is the Hall of Fame Award and the other is the Best Open Source PHP CMS. The Hall of Fame Award at the end went to Drupal. For the Best Open Source PHP CMS, Joomla! claimed the 2nd runner up losing to Drupal and WordPress.

With Joomla! 1.6 is on the horizon, let's hope Joomla! will not only keep the competitors at bay, but also once again win the top award.

The complete results of 2009 Open Source CMS Award can be viewed at Packt's Open Source CMS Award page.
