Statamic is a new commercial static blog engine.1 It's very pretty looking and has some nice options, including professional support. It's not free, but it looks like the price comes with real benefits. $30 one time license for a personal site or $100 one time license for a commercial site.
I really like how this looks and functions.
Plugins are written in PHP but the site is truly static. It's an interesting combination. ↩
