IMO it should be added to the next xoops core release (2.6 maybe?) as the core content module.
Based on my tests Publisher and fmcontent still are far from the stable status.

Re: News 1.67 Final released for XOOPS 2.5.5

We were considering also the fork of fmContent done by Voltan that he called "News", but it was important that it would be cloneable and able to import content from this News module. I just sent email to Voltan asking about the current status.

The key will be to have something that is extremely user friendly, and relatively powerful, so the first experience with XOOPS is a very positive one.

The current options are:

1) This News module, but enhanced with best features from xNews and AMS

2) fmContent fork from Voltan

3) Publisher

4) Content from Kerkyra

5) Soapbox (as a single or multi-user blogging module)

After we hear from Voltan, we'll need to make decision, and whatever we choose, we'll need to make it super user-friendly.

Voltan is in the middle of his final term exams. I think he will back this week.

Now im testing this final news module and i will inform you about it asap.

As for features, I think adding the new JQUERY calendar would be great.
replace XoopsFormTextDateSelect by XoopsFormDatePicker

I got to test new modules Vltan.
Module is very good. There are many possibilities.
If multiple developers to work on it, will become a powerful module
Excuse me.
I can not speak English well.
I get help from Google Translate.

Re: News 1.67 Final released for XOOPS 2.5.5

I cant find any bug until now.
Just a very small typo:
in language/english/modinfo.php
"Ativate Dublin Core Metadata ?"

"Activate Dublin Core Metadata ?"

But i think this module need a revamped templates.
for example adding the new field for picture and picture description (it is just ONE picture Sighhhhh) is very good but it just show the picture or topic picture and just show the description in alt:

<{if $story.picture != ''}>
            <
img class="left" src="<{$story.picture}>" alt="<{$story.pictureinfo}>"  />
        <{else}>
            <{
$story.imglink}>
        <{/if}>


The Above code in modules/news/templates/news_item.html is the worst show off for this feature.

Edit:

Im very bad in design but it should show the feature like this:

<{$story.imglink}>
        <{if 
$story.picture != ''}>
<
div class="left">
            <
img src="<{$story.picture}>" alt="<{$story.pictureinfo}>"  />
<
b><{$story.pictureinfo}></b>
</
div>
        <{/if}>

Whether there is a converter Xnews to News?

Into v1.67 official zip, some language files are not up-to-date, lack some definitions.

In admin, I've got the "text" _AM_MODULEADMIN_ADMIN_FOOTER displayed at the bottom instead of infos and links.
