XOOPS 2.5.8 Release Candidate 1 Available

Posted by geekwright on 2016/3/8 18:20:00 (2187 reads) | Posted on XOOPS
The XOOPS Development Team is pleased to announce the release of XOOPS 2.5.8 RC1.

This new version has numerous bug fixes and enhancements. You can download the XOOPS 2.5.8 RC1 release directly from XOOPS/XoopsCore25 on GitHub, or XOOPS Core (Beta Releases)/XOOPS_2.5.8_RC1 on SourceForge.

Please report any issues you encounter with this release so that we can make XOOPS better for everyone. If you are registered on GitHub, just open an issue. We will also monitor the XOOPS forums.


Fixes and Enhancements

Without the contributions of many, this release would not exist. A big "Thank you!" goes to everyone that has contributed. In alphabetical order, the list includes:

- Angelo Rocha
- Cédric MONTUY
- cesagonchu
- Dingjie Yang
- elpaksu
- hyp3rlinx
- luciorota
- mamba
- Peekay
- redheadedrod
- slider84
- timgno
- wppd
- xd9527
- zyspec

View the full change log here: https://github.com/XOOPS/XoopsCore25/b ... C1/docs/changelog.250.txt

Lots of effort has been put into making XOOPS better cleaner, safer and more compliant with current standards and best practices.


Security

This release includes fixes for multiple issues (CSRF, weak password hash, and directory traversal) reported by hyp3rlinx. Also, fixes for a potential privileged information disclosure issue reported by Cédric MONTUY.

Passwords are now hashed using PHP's password_hash() function. A library that brings compatibility to users with PHP versions earlier than 5.5 is included.

The new XMF library (see below) includes support for JWT, which can be very useful in securing AJAX and REST processing.


Ready for PHP 7 Testing

The world of PHP is in constant motion. The recent release of PHP 7 brings with it huge improvements, but also compatibility issues. While XOOPS 2.5.8 supports PHP 5.3.7 through the latest 5.6 release, PHP 7 support should still be considered experimental, and is released for public testing.

MySQL support using the mysql extension has been deprecated for quite a while, and PHP7 removes it completely. XOOPS 2.5.8 now uses the mysqli exclusively. Any database access using standard calls to the XoopsDatabase classes will use the newer mysqli extension. Some modules are using direct database calls through PHP mysql_* functions. These will continue to work under PHP 5, but it is recommended that module developers consider remediation of any such calls.

Another thing that changes in PHP 7 is "All of the E_STRICT notices have been reclassified to other levels." In previous XOOPS versions, E_STRICT warnings have been suppressed when using the debugging logger. These are no longer suppressed to give developers insight into what may need to be fixed. We've tried to make sure XoopsCore runs clean, but modules may produce debugging output you have not seen with earlier versions.

Custom administration themes may have issues due to a long existing bug in the XoopsSystemGui::validate() definition.


XMF Included

XOOPS Module Framework library, the XMF library, is now included, and is used in the core in several places. XMF is a library of standard classes useful in module development. It can be very useful in the near future, as all of its classes are forward compatible with the next generation of XOOPS.

Developers can learn more in the XMF Cookbook, and may want to look at the Xmfdemo module on GitHub.


Upgrade Required

There are database changes with this version. There are no new requirements for a fresh installation, but for updating an existing system, follow the recommended upgrade process. In a nut shell:

- Make a full backup of site files and database. (We've done lots of testing, but it is always best to be safe.)

- Copy the contents of the distribution htdocs directory into your web root directory.

- Copy the contents of htdocs/xoops_lib to your relocated/renamed xoops_lib as applicable.

- Copy the distribution upgrade directory into your web root directory.

- Point your browser to http://your-site-url/upgrade/ and follow the prompts.

- Log in and step through any needed updates.

- At the end, follow the link to upgrade the system module.

- Also update pm, profile and protector modules if installed.

- Remove the install and upgrade directories from your web root.

Your site should be ready to use.

Helium Admin Theme is coming to XOOPS 2.6.0

Posted by Mamba on 2015/12/27 20:30:00 (1620 reads) | Posted on XOOPS
Eduardo (aka Bitcero) just shared a picture of his new Admin theme he is working on for to XOOPS 2.6.0. It is called "Helium" and as you can see below, it looks AWESOME!!!!

Resized Image


You can see it in a full glory and detail on GitHub

Eduardo is a true artist, and I love the fact that the them is using colors and that even the icons are also with colors! Too many CMS projects are using only one color for the theme, with all icons being in another color. That's way too boring!

Please help us with testing and with contributing to the next version of XOOPS!!!!

You can find some useful links for XOOPS 2.6.0 in this article

Great progress on XOOPS 2.6.0 GUI

Posted by Mamba on 2015/12/18 1:00:00 (1185 reads) | Posted on XOOPS
Eduardo posted latest updates from his work on XOOPS 2.6.0 GUI (or Presentation Layer)

Preferences

New settings manager for modules. The new design is cleaner and responsive to maximize its functionality.

Dynamic settings. System is capable to load options dynamically to improve the development flow and updates.
Avoiding the old form tabs based on jQueryUI. Now bootstrap is fully integrated with tabs and, with this change, I'm prevent to embed HTML code in form PHP files.

eEmbed now included in XOOPS 2.6.0

Posted by Mamba on 2015/11/12 23:20:00 (1298 reads) | Posted on XOOPS
Including and presenting Media has just become so much easier in the next version of XOOPS!

Richard just added the "oEmbed" capability to XOOPS 2.6.0

So what is oEmbed?

oEmbed is a format for allowing an embedded representation of a URL on third party sites. The simple API allows a website to display embedded content (such as photos or videos) when a user posts a link to that resource, without having to parse the resource directly, in other words, it allows embedding content from a website into another page.

An oEmbed exchange occurs between a consumer and a provider. A consumer wishes to show an embedded representation of a third-party resource on their own website, such as a photo or an embedded video. A provider implements the oEmbed API to allow consumers to fetch that representation.

In XOOPS, similar to 'Clickable' filter, Embed will process a URL alone on a line using the embed/embed package. For URLs supporting oEmbed, such as YouTube, the oembed result will be shown. For other URLs, a default media box, built from the page content, will be displayed. See example below of the code, and then representation provided thanks to oEmbed:

How cool is that?

Shortcodes are coming to XOOPS 2.6.0 :D

Posted by Mamba on 2015/11/1 5:50:00 (1759 reads) | Posted on XOOPS
Richard continues to doing amazing changes to XOOPS 2.6.0. The latest addition are "Shortcodes", which are probably best known from WordPress. I was actually hoping for it for a long, long time, and I was very happy to see that Richard has added it to XOOPS! YES!!!

It was possible thanks to refactoring of our old TextSanitizer. You can read more details from Richard's info on GitHub

Quote:
MyTextSanitizer has become Xoops\Core\Text\Sanitizer.

Highlights:

- Single unified configuration file

xoops_data/configs/system_sanitizer_prefs.yml


- Extensions (i.e. YouTube) are now a SanitizerComponent, a base class that also includes Filters (i.e. Xss)

- Each SanitizerComponent auto-configures, and configuration is automatically updated with new additions

- Custom components can be added via response to core.sanitizer.configuration.defaults event

- ShortCodes (WordPress style) are now the basis of XoopsCode and extensions

- Custom ShortCodes can be added via response to

core.sanitizer.shortcodes.add
event, or by directly accessing the ShortCodes engine with

Sanitizer::getShortCodes()


- All built-in components and shortcodes can be overridden with same named custom replacements

- Some extensions have updated syntax. For example:

[youtube=640,385]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JxS5E-kZc2s[/youtube]

can now be:

[youtube url="JxS5E-kZc2s" width="640" height="385" /]


(It also can use virtually any known YouTube URL as the url attribute.)

- Another example is SoundCloud, which now can directly support the "Wordpress code" option offered in the Share/Embed dialog on soundcloud.com.

The old styles are still accepted for compatibility with existing content, and not all extensions have conversions to new styles, yet. There is more work to be done, but the backing code is now in place.


What does it mean for XOOPS developers? We'll be able now to simplify a lot of activities around designing the best looking Websites for our users and customers!
Also our users will be able to add tons of cool features without any programming!

For those of you who never worked with ShortCodes, let's provide a short overview and a little tutorial. The basic classes that we'll be using, are the TextSanitizer classes refactored by Richard:

Resized Image


Currently we have following classes derived from FilterAbstract :

- Censor
- Clickable
- Quote
- SyntaxHighlight
- TextFilter
- Xss

and following classes derived from ExtensionAbstract:

- Flash
- Iframe
- Image
- Mms
- Mp3
- Rtsp
- SoundCloud
- UnorderedList
- Wiki
- Wmp
- XoopsCode
- YouTube

For our purposes we'll be using mainly the ExtensionAbstract class. Let's see now how can we use it to create ShortCodes for Google Charts and Google Maps (Read more-->)
