Posted by: phpppOn 2011/7/16 10:42:02 8203 reads
We have a lot processes in X3 development since Alpha 2 release.

I would suggest following schedule for the coming month:

* Xoops Engine Alpha 3 release: on August 13th
* github repo structure change, github usage guide: D.J., julionc, by July 24th
* ZF upgrade to 1.11.9, change naming conventions to respect ZF strictly: D.J., by July 24th
* Backend product and UE design: ezsky, by July 31st
* Backend design implementation: D.J., by August 7th
* Debug and complete “user” module and ACL: D.J., dongbeta, by July 31st
* Content management app: dongbeta, by August 7th
* Theme and HTML5: voltan, kris_fr, mariane, by August 7th
* Documentation: julionc, dongbeta, by August 13th
* Test: marco, by August 13th

Yes, as you see, we have some people back onboard, like marco!
Anyone else have time on this Alpha 3 release loop?
We need more people on documentation, apps, themes and test.

BTW: PHP 5.4 is on its way with some very promising features and improvements. Benchmarks were done by PHP internal team with some applications, including XOOPS. I will write an article to introduce later on.

Follow X3 development on twitter @XoopsProject and Xoops Engine dev blog.
Check Xoops Engine code at github repo.

Due to recent arguments, Xoops Engine development has been paused temporarily and the release schedule will postponed accordingly. We hope the issues can be solved as soon as possible.
