Status update for phpMyFAQ 2.5.7 / 2.6.1 / 2.7.0-alpha

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.

phpMyFAQ 2.5.6 Released!

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.

Status update for phpMyFAQ 2.5.6 / 2.6.0-RC

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. :-)

phpMyFAQ 2.5.3 Released!

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.

Status update for phpMyFAQ 2.5.3 / 2.6.0-alpha

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…

Status update for phpMyFAQ 2.0.16 / 2.5.1 / 2.6.0-alpha

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.
