Hello~!
Xoops development is not dead.

just be patience..
i am sure developers and non developers and coders and hackers and everyone in the XOOPS community are doing their best to bring XOOPS over its limits~

Could be just temporary slowdown..

Re: is xoops development dead?

Did you read the latest WOX (World of Xoops) Newsletter?

Xoops development is very active. Just have a look at dev.xoops.org where many great modules were developed at the moment.

Re: is xoops development dead?

Development is far from dead.

3 months is not all that long, I feel, we need to be careful not to spew out versions right and left, but only release them, when there is an actual reason for it.

Currently we are putting in the last patches and bugfixes of a 2.0.7 release candidate, which should be out shortly

edit: LOL - three replies so fast after each others... no, XOOPS development and community is very much alive

You may be confused with E-Xoops, which has recently announced similar news.

Yeah, apparently e-xoops has changed name to RunCMS... possibly to distinguish themselves from XOOPS (which I think is a very good idea - the two names have been too close to each others)

Re: is xoops development dead?

well, i'm happy to see such responses so quickly. i expected as much. the community is active. i only put the subject i did because in the past when i posted i was actually completely ignored and no one replied. i figured this subject line would ilicit some responses :)

i don't expect quick releases and actually appreciate mature, stable releases. i was just getting a bit antsy because i have seen the same home page with the same news on here for the last 3 months with the WOX and i just wanted to say "hey, what's going on nowadays".

when choosing CMS frameworks, it's important to know where things are heading. i've been watching mambo and i like what i see there as far as some of the innovative things they have in place and their roadmap, but i wasn't sure where XOOPS was heading especially with the news of change in direction, lead developers, and merging of projects. there were some references in WOX about that but i just wanted to get a pulse on how all that was going.

thanks for those who replied. it's a good show of support. by the way, i really like xoops. you guys made a very good product.

Of course it won't happen again... last April will never happen again so there won't be another chance to miss it.
