I've used FarCry on several dozen non-library sites. We liked it a lot 
at first but the later versions have given us problems so that we've 
started using Joomla on some new sites.

FarCry has evolved into more of an application platform, with the CMS 
being one possible application and it seems to be more versatile than I 
usually need--that is, it seems to be more of a tool for an 
enterprise-level application developer than a humble web-developer. I 
don't do the server-side stuff (instllation and upgrades) and my 
collaborator who does that came to dislike FarCry.

Having said that, no CMS I have looked at does a better job of 
separating logic from presentation or making module and template 
constomization easier.

I'd be happy to answer detailed questions privately if you'd like.
