XOOPS 2.6.0 Alpha 2 ?

Any news about this verion?

I see in roadmap :

Quote:
Alpha 2
- Adding a theme manager in the system module.
- Comments plugins.
- Notifications plugins.
- Image manager plugins.
- Search plugins.
-Integration of PDF library.
-Content module.
-Menu Module.

Estimated Date : September 2012


I don't see any activity in SVN, core team can add all of this options in just one month?

My understanding is that Nicolas and the Core Team are working on this. My assumption is that they are experimenting with different approaches and after they settle down on something, then they will commit it to SVN.

If anything doesn't work right away the way they planned, we might have a delay, but that's why they call these dates "estimated dates". And let's not forget that they do it in their free time, and they do have families and jobs.

If we want to ensure that the development is progressing on time, or even slightly faster than planned, let's all contribute to it. There are plenty of opportunities!

Not yet, but there is a lot of progress in other areas by Trabis, Mage, and Dugris.

Please subscribe to our SVN mailing list, so you can see the progress being done.

I'm planning to add a 'translate' class before alpha2. Jommla approach with ini files seems good to me. I don't know if we will be implementing the ini files for alpha 2 core translations but we will have the core prepared to read the files if present.

There is so much that I would like to do before alpha2 that I don't know if we can deliver it before end of this year.

Re: XOOPS 2.6.0 Alpha 2 ?

Formuss and Mage are working or are engaged in other work?

I see only trabis and dugris, working on this.

There were other developers who had offered to help.

Where did they go?

It would be interesting to add a plugin for sitemap.

I saw that in prestashop is interesting

Formuss is working on the new theme installer, but time is not on his side at the moment.
Mage is currently working on the system module. I've asked him to create a mysql file and add all configs into xoops_version . That way we can install it (via install script) just like any other module, it will make upgrading easier in the future. It is a boring task and he won't commit until everything is in place!
I'm currently looking for event/dispatcher/request/response/controller/action/exception/router/i8ln classes that I can introduce to xoops.

I'll would like to have the above classes/services available on core before adding comments/notification/search. They will also be essential to the url rewriting module that solo is building.

There is a lot of activity going on at the moment. Dugris (and Kris I believe) is /are working on 2.6 modules and fixing core bugs. Mamba is working hard on basic module pack and helping on 2.5.6. Lots of feature request/ bug reports (that also counts as activity!).

As for the sitemap plugin, I'm sure we can have one, but please be patient. We are a liiiiiiiiiitle bit delayed.

Re: XOOPS 2.6.0 Alpha 2 ?

There is a lot of activity going on at the moment.

in the xoops 2.6.0 roadmap too much works has been loaded to core team.
It is not just going from 2.5 to 2.6 but a complete revamp in the xoops API.
The volume of works only can be compared by all coding done from xoops 1 to xoops 2.5
I hope i could find some time to help in testing and debugging. right now i just have a very little time for xoops.
@trabis:
I see your massive commits. i wish you could find more time too
