The phpMyFAQ Team is pleased to announce phpMyFAQ 2.5.7, the “Herbert Wehner” release. This release improves the glossary detection and contains updated Dutch, Indonasian, Chinese (Simplified), Japanese and Norwegian Bokmal translations. We fixed many minor bugs.
This week was very good. We released phpMyFAQ 2.6 and got a lot of feedback after more than 1,000 downloads within the first 36 hours. Due to the big amount of feedback we also received a number of bugreports. We already fixed a lot of them, so expect a 2.6.1 the next two weeks. We also try to release a 2.5.7 maintainance release for phpMyFAQ 2.5 installations. phpMyFAQ 2.7 is under heavy development and currently very unstable because the changed already the complete category code base.
We fixed some minor issues the last days and we’re now preparing the 2.6 release. So there won’t be a RC2 anymore. I also thinking about supporting 2.5 until the 2.7 release planned for july 2010.
The phpMyFAQ Team wishes everyone a happy new year 2010! Since today, the only supported versions are phpMyFAQ 2.5 and the upcoming phpMyFAQ 2.6 release. We don’t support any PHP 4 based of phpMyFAQ anymore.
The phpMyFAQ Team would like to announce the availability of phpMyFAQ 2.5.6, the “Joe Strummer” release. This release updates the bundled TinyMCE editor component to version 3.2.7, the bundled SyntaxHighlighter library to version 2.1.364, the bundled SyntaxHighlighter plugin for TinyMCE, the Brazilian Portuguese translation, and the Spanish translation. It also fixes minor issues.
I’m still ill at home but I’m feeling better. Today I fixed three issues on phpMyFAQ 2.5.5 and I merged the patches also to phpMyFAQ 2.6.
I’m ill at home for one week now and I even cannot develop anything. Until now I didn’t get any feedback from the RC release but I’ll prepare a second RC for the next week. So 2.6.0 will be a 2010 release like the 2.5.6 release which will be the last 2.5 release. Please don’t forget that the support for phpMyFAQ 2.0 ends in 17 days…
We’re in the final stage of fixing the last bugs we found during testing the beta version of phpMyFAQ 2.6. As the current state is already quite stable the next version will be already our release candidate. If everything works well the final release can be out around christmas. Beside stabilizing the 2.6 version we’re still supporting the 2.5 branch some time. We also have some plans for 2.7.
The phpMyFAQ Team would like to announce the availability of phpMyFAQ 2.5.5, the “World AIDS Day” release. This release fixes multiple IE6/7 only XSS vulnerabilities.

Well, phpMyFAQ 2.5.4 and 2.6.0-alpha are almost “done”. Anatoliy and my colleague Max Koehler helped me a lot to improve the 2.6 release with some nice features. You’ll need less clicks in the administration backend than before. We also fixed all known issues in phpMyFAQ 2.5.x. I’ll have to travels a lot the coming weeks but I’ll try to release both versions this month.
The phpMyFAQ Team is pleased to announce phpMyFAQ 2.5.3, the “Jonathan Swift” release. With this release we switched our version control system from SVN to git and we added the missing Perl syntax hightlighting. We fixed the missing info link in news, the broken group permission check for instant response, the broken attachment download, and we fixed some SQLite problems. We also updated the Japanese translation.
The last couple of days were full of bugfixing for the 2.5.3 release. I also started to re-work the export stuff for 2.6… As we support Docbook XML export I was wondering if anyone is using this?
The first 10 days after the switch from SVN to git were full of bugfixes and some new features. David Soria Parra fixed some SQLite issues, Anatoliy started the work for a new Pagination class, and I fixed some bugs in the 2.5 and master branch. I also re-added one missing feature: the internal FAQ link plugin in TinyMCE. The 2.5.3 release will be sometime in october, the 2.6.0-alpha release won’t happen before the end of the same month. The final 2.6 release won’t be in 2009…

We fixed LDAP and some Oracle issues, and improved our svn2package script. Beside that many minor bugfixes were made.
We would like to announce the availability of phpMyFAQ 2.0.16, the “Isaac Hayes” release. We updated the French translation and fixed a lot of minor bugs. This is the final release for the 2.0.x series. Only critical security issues will be fixed.
Today I received a great patch from Lars Scheithauer with some LDAP fixes and some great additions for our LDAP support. With Lars’ patch it’s now possible to authenticate against an Active Directory from Microsoft, using multiple domains in your Actice Directory, and he also added support for the PHP LDAP options. Thank you very much, Lars!
I added all these enhancements to phpMyFAQ 2.5.1 and 2.6.0-alpha. We also fixed some issues in all three supported branches. I think you can expect a release of 2.0.16 and 2.5.1 next week.
Wow, that’s pretty cool… okay, it’s not like the number of downloads of Firefox 3.5, but for me it’s really great to see that so many people downloaded the new version of phpMyFAQ. Thank you!
Wow, we got some quite good feedback from our users after the 2.5 release yesterday. We also got some bug reports and we’re already fixed some minor issues. So expect a version 2.5.1 in August. In July we’ll release a maintainance release for phpMyFAQ 2.0. And we’re starting to merge the code of our UTF-8 branch back into the trunk for phpMyFAQ 2.6.
