XOOPS 2.2 Released

Date 2005/7/27 9:20:00 | Topic: XOOPS

The XOOPS Core Development Team is very happy to announce the release of XOOPS 2.2

After an intense development and testing period, we are now ready to release the final version of XOOPS 2.2 boasting a completely new set of themes, theming of the administration area and dynamic user profile fields.

As with all new features, the flexibility and usage of the new features will not show properly until more people are using them, so you may experience limitations that you did not expect.
We have already started the planning of XOOPS 2.4, so be comfortable knowing that whatever concerns that arise in the next weeks will be taken into consideration when developing XOOPS 2.4 - and of course, really big issues will be dealt with as swiftly as possible.

The Dev Wiki already has a list of all changes to the language constants in the core and will be expanded to hold explanations for how to

- Use dynamic user profile fields
- Theme the administration area
- Use configuration categories
- Use page awareness
and more.
