This week we branched the new 2.7 branch from the current stable 2.6 branch. 2.7.0 will be the next major version of phpMyFAQ with a focus on a brand new user interface and some social improvements like better Facebook and Twitter integration. We changed the minimal PHP version for phpMyFAQ 2.7 to PHP 5.2.3. The current master branch was re-versioned to 3.0.0-dev and will need PHP 5.3, but it will take more than a year before you can see something here.

Status update for phpMyFAQ 2.6.7

Currently I’m working on the refactoring of the search component which hopefully will be part of phpMyFAQ 2.6.7. You maybe ask why I do this in the stable version and not in the master branch? The answer is quite simple: my spare time is limited so I will concentrate the next weeks and months on improve the 2.6 code base which will also be merged into the master branch for phpMyFAQ 2.7 and later.
