Questionnaire regarding Supporting PHP5 and MySQL5

chippyash  09-Jan-2007 18:07  6059 reads  12
Following Mithrandir's release of the excellent SmartProfile module for Xoops 2.0.16, the question of which version of PHP (and to some extent MySQL) should we as Xoops devs (both core and module) be supporting, has arisen.

To help in determining who is running what and where, and more importantly who will be running what in the future, I've put together a very simple and quick questionnaire at Please help us to gather some important information about your PHP and MySQL usage by completing THE QUESTIONNAIRE.

You will need to enquire of your hosters first, if you don't already know the answer.

Data collected here will be passed back to to help developers plan their strategies.

WF-Projects is joining SmartFactory

Bender  19-Nov-2005 15:37  9303 reads  23
We like to inform you that effective immediately WF-Projects is joining into Marcans SmartFactory with most of the WF-Modules.

Against all our affords we have not been able to deliver new releases of some of the most favored modules for quite some time. Although a lot of rewriting to put the modules on a new foundation by John (to take care of some basic issues like querries, permissions that are hard to fix otherwise) has been done there is just not enough time available to finish this in a short timeframe. Additionally with the loss of a part of that work recently it has even gotten the situation worse. (life can be a pain ...)

Slight Delay in XOOPS 2.2 Release

Mithrandir  23-Jun-2005 19:16  3548 reads  4
XOOPS 2.2 was supposed to be released on June 30th (according to the Roadmap
but unfortunately, you will have to wait another week for that.

We are close to announcing the CVS Nightly to be ready for beta testing, but it will not be until this weekend that we will make that announcement.

Releasing a major change such as 2.2 with only a few days of beta testing would not be a responsible thing to do so therefore I am officially postponing the release until Sunday July 10th.

I hope you will like the changes and feel that they are worth the wait.

On behalf of the Core Development Team
Lead Developer for XOOPS 2.2
