XOOPS: Xoops 2.0.9 Beta Has Landed

Posted by: Mithrandiron 2004/10/23 10:00:00 10165 reads Xoops 2.0.9 Beta is brought to you by the Xoops Core Development Team.

We have added a few extra features as well as done some extensive changes in many files to get closer to PHP 5 compatibility. We still do not claim to be PHP 5 compatible, because we are aware of some problems with installing certain modules, but hope with this release to get closer to solving those problems.
Due to the amount of changes, this release cannot be recommended for production websites, but should be used for testing purposes only.

Upgrade from 2.0.7.x:
- Upload files in package (if using full package, make sure not to overwrite your mainfile.php)
- Update System Module

See the changelog for more details as to what is changed in this version.
