Bloxx Coding Standards released

The first version of the Bloxx Coding Standards was released and is available for download. These standards should be used by all Bloxx developers.

The purpose of this document is to define one style of programming in PHP that must be used by all Bloxx developers, in order to keep all the code easy to correct, inspect and maintain by all the developers in the Bloxx team.

An effort is being made to make the entire current code base compliant with these standards.
