W.O.X. - WORLD OF XOOPS #14 (November 2008)

Another month, and another issue of the WOX (World of XOOPS) Newsletter (see here previous versions)  

October continued to be busy for the XOOPS community - with debugging and testing and then releasing of the XOOPS 2.3.1 !!!! The work continues on working out issues with modules, to make sure that they are compatible with 2.3.1.  October was also very good for themes - we had a lot new ones. As always, we salute all of XOOPS developers who develop new modules and themes and share them with the XOOPS Community!!!

  • XOOPS 2.3.1 Final has been released. This is the most advanced XOOPS version yet, finally merging the the two branches 2.0.x and 2.2.x.

    With over 7,000 downloads of XOOPS 2.3.1 within the first three weeks, we have a very good start. The goal for us is to upgrade all XOOPS sites to 2.3.x, so we can focus on supporting only one version of XOOPS.
  • Our Founder, Onokazu,  has been recognized as one of Most Valued People of Open Source CMS.   Thank you all who voted for him. While XOOPS didn't win this year, we are shooting for that title next year with our new version: XOOPS 3.0
  • XOOPS Innovation Award - for people who create something very unique and innovative for XOOPS. This time the award goes to Julian Egelstaff (jegelstaff) for his new version of Formulize!
  • XOOPSer of the Month Award:  is given to XOOPS members who show extraordinary dedication to XOOPS, and go the extra mile for XOOPS. This month we would like to recognize: Anders Kristiansen (anderssk), the Webmaster of XOOPS Denmark and XOOPS Nordic. It's the Webmasters for XOOPS local support sites who make the difference for all the people who don't speak English, and their only entry to the wonderful world of XOOPS.


We continue to execute on our Plans for 2008. We'll need all the help from the whole XOOPS Community to make the 2008 Plans reality. But we are confident that together, we'll be able to make it. Remember - XOOPS is powered by YOU!!!!
