With the release of Xoops RC1, the Xoops team is pleased to announce the creation of a brand new Content Management System. This system was originally based off of PHPNuke 4.4.1 and MyPHPNuke 1.8.5. About 70 - 80 percent of the code has been totally rewritten from the ground up. We use object-oriented PHP throughout the whole package, thus the name XOOPS. For the upcoming final version, we are now working on XHTML1.0 validation, support for other databases namely PostgreSQL, and more enhanced modules.
Our goal with Xoops is to create a system that will offer ease of use module developers and a full out of the box feature package for the end user. We spent sometime researching other CMS sites to see what some of the most requested modules and features are and have tried to implement them in this one package.
