I don't know of any software that will do exactly what you want out of 
the box, without customization. There may be a project that someone has 
created just for this specific task, but none that I know of.

I have used PostNuke, PHPNuke, PHPWebsite. While none of these will do 
exactly what you want without customization, there are some really good 
modules already built for them that you can use or even modify/enhance 
to do a lot of what you want. They are all PHP-based products. PostNuke 
would probably be the most advanced of the three but may also be the 
most restrictive for building custom content.

If perl is your poison, slash may be the way to go although the last 
time I looked at it, it was much less advanced than the ones mentioned 
above. However, if you are going to end up doing a lot of customization, 
that may be just fine.
