About four years we started on 1.x. phpWebSite has come pretty far.
Since then, I think the software has evolved far beyond the expectations
we had from 0.8.x to 0.10.x. That said, in the evolutionary chain, I
don't think we are walking upright with clothes quite yet.
This summer, we will be taking a little break from updating. Barring
some unknown circumstance, there won't be a 1.7.0. Instead we will be
working on the 2.x series.
Some of the basic changes will be to update the code to current PEAR
libraries, rework some of the earlier written modules, make it easier to
create and update modules, and overall improve the interface. Backward
compatibility with current modules should remain the same. We MAY change
the name of the project as well since the "php" portion of the name
seems to confuse people.
Sourceforge is dropping some of its services. We will be dropping their
bug and feature requests and using a Trac on our own servers. We will
also try using our own BB for some interaction. More likely, we will
lead people to phpwsforums.com since they already have wealth of
Thanks to everyone still involved with the project. As I get further
down the path, I hope to have a blog running or maybe a channel in
phpwsforums.com to discuss 2.x. I look forward to your input.
