I’m speaking at the Dutch PHP Conference 2010 in Amsterdam, Netherlands. My talk “Agile PHP Software Development” is scheduled for June 11th. For more information click on the DPC homepage.
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.
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.
The last couple of months I thought about a new layout for phpMyFAQ. After Anatoliy’s work on the user-specific templates I decided to re-work the whole design of phpMyFAQ. We will re-work the whole layout, the XHTML and the CSS so that easier and more flexible layouts are possible. We will use a CSS framework for that, too. Together with the final release of phpMyFAQ 2.7 we will also provide more designs for 2.0 and 2.5/2.6 based layouts.
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.
The phpMyFAQ Team wishes evyerone a merry christmas.
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…
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.
