Cobalt 8 CCK become better and better week after week. This week I have been able to participate with building live sites based on Cobalt. Our customers was so happy that they started with Cobalt because it turned out it is the only CCK that could satisfy their needs.

As a result of this work, there a lot of small changes and adjustments that are not listed but removes some very tiny miss behaviours. Like for example if you keep personalisation, but turn off user follow section follow have to become active. I mean those are the things that you might have not even noticed, but it is good to know that even things you are not using works well :)
