I looked over the latest changes on github and although the module now claims it requires 2.5.8 there were no changes made that actually require 2.5.8. At this point (ver 1.04 RC 1) will run on 126.96.36.199 as well.
All the modules that I am working on, will "scream" to use XOOPS 2.5.8
and PHP 5.5+
We need to test all of them on XOOPS 2.5.8
to make sure that both the modules and XOOPS 2.5.8
work well together on the current PHP versions. Due to very limited time, I won't be able to test any modules on older versions of XOOPS. However, if somebody wants to do it, and fix any potential issues related to an older version, then please free to do it.
In the future, we'll add a checker at each module installation, that will fail if we try to install a "2.5.8" module on an older version of XOOPS. This way we'll avoid user confusion and disappointments.
IMHO we need to focus our very limited resources on making sure that XOOPS 2.5.8
, which runs on the latest version of PHP (i.e. PHP 7) is as solid as possible, and we have all key modules running on it without any problems ASAP.
Please support XOOPS & DONATEUse 2.5.8
