is MVC part of xoops 2.6?
It might not be in the first release, but the plan is definitely to have it. Richard has already experimented with a MVC design based on Mojavi framework, which was also the starting point of Symfony. This MVC-design done by Richard was kind of a "proof of concept" and was on top of XMF from Trabis.
But MVC is not standing still, and there is recently an interesting development toward "Action-Domain-Response" model by Paul Jones. You can read more about it here:http://paul-m-jones.com/archives/5970
Richard has also looked into it and did some experiments with this concept, and he liked that approach.
I think that with the current work by Richard and with the MVC done by Eduardo in RMC, they should be able to merge the best ideas into a nice MVC design in future XOOPS version.
As you see, there is a lot of cool things happening in XOOPS, and once certain decisions related to architecture of the future XOOPS are made and implemented, things will move much faster.
