As more and more hosts are offering in addition to PHP 5.4.x also PHP 5.5.x, it was important that we update and certify XOOPS for PHP 5.5.x as well.

Today we are happy to release for testing XOOPS 2.5.7 Beta 1, that will run without any problems on PHP 5.5.x

This release is focused on PHP 5.5.x compatibility, security enhancements, and bug fixes.

But we have included one new cool thing: the xBootstrap theme, based on Bootstrap

See the Changelog below for more details.

Minimum PHP Version: 5.3.7

Please note: the fact that the XOOPS Core runs correctly on PHP 5.5.x, doesn't mean that all your modules will run correctly, therefore you'll need to test them first.

The recently released modules that qualify for our Basic Module Pack, are all tested on PHP 5.5.x, and they should run just fine.

For all others, please let us know about any issues you might have.

Download: SourceForge File Repository.

Please remember: This is a Beta Release version for features testing only!!!!

DO NOT install it on a production site and DO NOT upgrade any production site with it!!!

Please post and discuss all issues related to this release in this forum thread
