Developer News: XOOPS 2.1.0 Development is on the road

Posted by: Mithrandiron 2005/4/9 10:03:57 11447 reads The development of Xoops 2.1.0 has started and developers and other interested parties can follow the development as it progresses.

The goal of the development is to take on as many of the bugs reported on SourceForge as possible as well as adding new features and preparing the move to the next major version of XOOPS (Codenamed "XooSphere") so it has as little impact on current themes and modules as possible.

Anyone interested in the code can download a Nightly CVS build which is taken from the development branch in the XOOPS CVS repository.
NOTE: The nightly build is NOT in any way guaranteed to work - although we do aim at only committing working code. Fixing one bug or adding a feature in one place may result in other code malfunctioning and we cannot test all parts of the core for every addition. So while we hope for the nightly build to be installable and working, there may be inconveniences.

As the development progresses, the risk of getting a nightly build with major errors should diminish.

Read on for a more in-depth description of what is in the nightly build as of this moment.
