The cat is out of the bag. The sooner we move from behind closed doors, the happier I'll be. I say, move forward with open development.
I would agree with maintaining compatibility with PHP4 until 2008-08-08. From what I've seen, it's not so difficult to do. Yes, it would be nice to have new features, but as pointed out, a lot of hosts are slow to upgrade.
Well lets be honest.
If we where developing in secret, people would not be able to have access to the code in svn.
But they can, if they wish, access svn.
So perhaps we should use this - and therefore allow people to help error test if they so wish.
Let's get a decision on this
Again, I'm coming back with this request. Would you see any serious problem in starting to use the trackers at SF ?
I know we are still discussion about what our long term objectives are and it would be better not to start coding before this is all decided. But altought I agree we need to decide all this sooner than later, but we already have enough of an idea about where we are going that we can start coding 0.5 version.
So, in order to get things organized and track what we are doing, it is essential we use the bug, feature and tasks tracker. It is the only way we can be efficient and productive.
ImpressCMS can be found in a few places now on the web and XOOPS.org has discussed it briefly, and so does frxoops. So it is not a secret anymore.
Was the language fix included?
Any new language differences?
Kurak (Docs team) has asked for the Polish flag to be included - and asked if this fix was included.
Also: I've attempted to update from the latest release, on my test site - but updating the system module attempts to update another module already listed.
I just added it
So the EasiestMultilanguage is now part of the core or ImpressCMS.
I have added a new preferences category in General Settings, called Multilanguage Settings. There your can turn on or off the multilanguage feature. It will be turned Off by default.
You can have a look at the attached file to see these settings. These are basically the settings that could be configured in easiestml.php, but now, webmaster can do it via or more friendly form.
1- In order to take care of the XOOPS preferences system, I add to move the inclusion of the eaisestml file from after the XOOPS_URL delcaration in mainfile.php to after the $config_handler creation in include/common.php.
I did not investigate the side effect of this. Can someone have a look at it ?
2- I add to create a record in config_category, and a few ones in config_items. We will need an upgrade script for this. Anyone have played with the previous XOOPS upgrade script ? Anyone could write it ?
Of course, your comments are always welcome !
My vote : from now all, in all new code we write, we can use all the power of PHP5 without caring about PHP 4 compatibility.
Let's believe in our conviction. We all know PHP 4 is dead. So why bother.
