The last couple of days I fixed some minor bugs in the 2.6 and 2.7 code base. I have to work a lot during my daily work and so the development of phpMyFAQ 2.7 slowed down. Today I added the experimental support for Microsofts SQL Server Driver for PHP which will reduce some problems with the old PHP MS SQL Server driver. We’ll release this new driver support with phpMyFAQ 2.6.4 the next days.
The phpMyFAQ Team would like to announce the availability of phpMyFAQ 2.6.3, the “Steve Fossett” release. This release fixes various mail issues and improves links rewriting, sitemap for Chinese, Japanese and Korean content and the meta keyword handling. We updated Portuguese and French translation. We also fixed a lot of minor bugs.
The phpMyFAQ Team is pleased to announce phpMyFAQ 2.6.2, the “Hildegard Knef” release. This release fixes an update script issue, the display of Chinese, Japanese and Korean content in PDFs, some issues with RSS feeds and the broken Spanish translation. We also updated the French translation and fixed some minor bugs.
Due to a stupid bug added by myself during some tests for the 2.6.1 release I have to release phpMyFAQ 2.6.2 as soon as possible. Currently 2.0 and 2.5 users cannot upgrade with the update script included in the 2.6.1 package. Sorry for that. Beside this bug I fixed the Japanese, Korean and Chinese characters in the PDF exports with the help of some users in our forums.
The phpMyFAQ Team would like to announce the availability of phpMyFAQ 2.6.1, the “Oleg Velyky” release. This release updates the bundled TCPDF library to version 4.8.026 and we improved cookie handling. We also fixed a lot of bugs reported by our users the last two weeks.
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.
The phpMyFAQ Team would like to announce the availability of our new major version, phpMyFAQ 2.6.0, the “Sir Edmund Hillary” release. With this release we moved all language files to UTF-8 and added TCPDF as replacement for FPDF library. We also added support for TinyMCE translations, support for multi-language news, user adjustable template sets and styles, support plurals in translations, share on Facebook link, a rest/json API, secure login if SSL is available, FAQ entry dependent meta description, and experimental support for Microsoft Windows Web App Gallery. We improved the attachment functionality, the install script, the category view with description, the FAQ entry activation, the user administration, and the FAQ entry workflow. We removed the Docbook XML export and the Net_IDNA library. Finally, we updated the Greek, the Lithuanian, and the Japanese translation.
Today we added the new 2.6 branch in our repo and started the development with phpMyFAQ 2.7. phpMyFAQ 2.6.0 will be released the next days, so stay tuned!
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.
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…
The phpMyFAQ Team would like to announce the availability of the frist release candidate of our next major version, phpMyFAQ 2.6.0-RC, the “John Lennon” release. This release fixes a lot of issues. Do not use this version in production systems, but test this version and report bugs!
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 the second preview release of our next major version, phpMyFAQ 2.6.0-beta, the “SandmÃ¤nnchen” release. This release updates the Greek translation, fixes the upgrade and migration process and fixes a lot of minor issues. Do not use this version in production systems, but test this version and report bugs!
The phpMyFAQ Team would like to announce the availability of the first preview release of our next major version, phpMyFAQ 2.6.0-alpha, the “Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky” release. In this release we moved all language files to UTF-8, added TCPDF as replacement for FPDF library, added support for TinyMCE translations, added support for multi-language news, added user adjustable template sets and styles, added support plurals in translations, added share on Facebook link, added a rest/json API for future iPhone or Android apps, added secure login if SSL is available, and added FAQ entry dependent meta description. We improved the attachment functionality, the install script, the category view with description, the FAQ entry activation, the user administration frontend, and the FAQ entry workflow. We removed the Docbook XML export and updated bundled TinyMCE editor component to version 3.2.7. Do not use this version in production systems, but test this version and report bugs!
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 last couple of days with fixed some minor issues in phpMyFAQ 2.5.x, we also received updates for the Dutch and Brazilian Portuguese translations. In phpMyFAQ 2.6 we finished the rest/json API and the alpha release will be in the next couple of days.
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…
