There will be more modules coming soon, as the goal is to finish the Basic Module Pack by end of the year, so we can focus on converting all these modules to XOOPS 2.6.0

All these modules have been tested on PHP 5.4.8, so they should be running just fine on existing XOOPS 2.5.5 and PHP 5.2+ installations.

Our recommendation is:

XOOPS 2.5.5
PHP 5.3+

If you find any bugs, please report them in this Thread.

We would also appreciate all help with finalizing other modules, and with writing documentation or creating video tutorials, and translations into local languages.

We would like to thank all users who tested these modules and reported bugs, and all developers who contributed new features and bug fixes!

It is this collaboration that makes the XOOPS Community so strong!
