XOOPS is back!

Thanks to the influx of new developers, XOOPS Project has been able to release updates to its CMS on a monthly basis since August 2008, and to start parallel development of new versions. While one team led by Trabis was focusing on the maintenance of 2.4.x series, another team from France and Switzerland worked on the XOOPS 2.5.x series, with main focus on redesigning the Admin with jQuery. At the same time, the work continues on revising architecture for the new XOOPS 3.0 version, led by Dr. Taiwen Jiang, the Project Leader.

As you've seen in the XOOPS 2008-2009 Annual Report, there have been a lot of exciting activities in the last two years, the community is uniting, growing, and becoming more vibrant and active - creating new themes, new modules, and new Core releases.

The XOOPS 2.5 Alpha has been released today, just one week after the XOOPS 2.4.4 Final release. Fast and furious!

With developments like this, 2010 will be a lot FUN!!!
