The XOOPS Development Team is pleased to announce the availability of release candidate 2 of XOOPS 2.5.9. This version includes fixes and enhancements, security updates, and PHP 7.1 compatibility.

See the change log for more details.

Remember, this is a release candidate intended for testing only. Use in a production system is not without risks.

XOOPS 2.5.9 RC2 fixes several issues uncovered during the testing period for RC1. XOOPS 2.5.9 is currently feature frozen. With a release candidate status, only bug fixes will be considered, and enhancement requests will be accepted, but not acted on at this point. If we have no release blocking bugs reported on RC2, it will become the production ready release.

In the spirit of full disclosure and our "eating our own dogfood attitude," we should mention that the xoops.org site is currently running the RC2 code under PHP 7.1, and fully SSL

Please download from the RC2 archive from GitHub!

Please report your findings, good and bad -- it will help a lot!

Thank you

 Re: XOOPS 2.5.9 Release Candidate 2 Available

We had a couple of issues reported last week that needed to be addressed quickly, so those fixes have been incorporated into 2.5.9. Unfortunately, that means we need to have an RC3. I am actually preparing for that today.

Assuming testing goes smoothly, and no new major issues are reported, RC3 will be followed quickly by the final release. I am hoping this will happen by early next week.
