b2evolution is a multi-lingual, multi-user, multi-blog publishing system written in PHP and backed by a MySQL database. It is distributed under the GNU General Public License and is available without charge. François Planque forked b2evolution from version 0.6.1 of b2/cafelog in 2003.[1] Another popular fork of b2 is WordPress.

b2evolution is focused on ease of installation and feature richness. It can easily be installed on almost any LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) host in a matter of minutes. With the latest release, no configuration file editing is necessary, as all configuration is handled through the installer or administrative back-end.

One of the main differentiating features of b2evolution is its ability to manage multiple blogs and allow multi-user usage and administration under a single installation without the need of external plugins.

Whilst there are a few exceptions; most of the releases are named after famous cities or particular places [2] the project maintainer has been and/or inspired from.[citation needed] "Release History of b2evolution"

Features in current releases include: community-wide spam filters, in which many b2evolution sites aggregate and "tag" spammer IPs into a central blacklist for the benefit of all b2evolution blogs; a fully skinnable interface; localization into a dozen language packs; and a fully exposed API for plugin developers to add new functionality.
