Our Review:

Radiant is the CMS product from the Ruby on Rails developer community. It is highly capable and since RoR can handle just about anything web-wise, working examples show a good range of high-quality CMS.

Ruby on Rails is supposed to be the ultimate web development and web for database environment - but then again, others have made that claim.

Looking at the examples so far, the thing that stands out is the quality of the pagecode produced - light years ahead of some of the low-quality stuff that is far too common in Java CMS. Because of this, and because in theory anything is possible with RoR, Radiant is a candidate here. It just depends on your developers.

Radiant needs a compiled install so it's only suitable for a LAN server or a dedibox you can access.
