Public v3 is on svn

Hello everyone,

Project has been very active for the last year (not on sourceforge though), we have re-though a lot of things in w3OS.

Main changes are :
- integrated Active Directory
- Advanced User/Group/Rights management
- Google Chrome compatibility
- Modified the look of the start menu
- Fixed a LOT of display bugs

In a word this version is clearly way better than any previous realease !

Stable and evolutions

I ahve been using this version for some time now and it sounds stable.
I need do document the SDK to make easier devs.
However, I recently created a new application and felt it could be easier if there were functions that took a source of data and dislpayed the corresponding grid for example.

then we will focus on interaction (drag/drop/copy/paste ...)

Someone posted a interesting question. Is there an API to manage w3OS. Well, yes and no.
Yes because you can use any function found in include.inc, however it is not documented and some function are not of any use to the user.

I will think about this API deeper as soon as v4.01b is out !

Working on v4.01b

The w3Os web os desktop is agout to move from aplha to beta.
Indeed some bugs have been removed, comaptibily with PHP5 and Apache 2 has been increased (no need to change php.ini file for register_globals or stuff like that).
Still need to bring a properly filled database. For the moment it is filled with icons that are not linked to any application.

I would be happy to get some feedbacks on installation of w3OS. If anybody can drop me a line ....

Thx & hope you enjoy

w3OS_v4_01a_r4 is out !

r4 is now available:
- Better documentation
- less configuration
- more icons in the icon list
- cleaned database

Posted by DouD_ 2007-03-08

Tests results

Here are the results of the tests:
- you need to set register_globals to on in php.ini
- you need to change the error level according to the documentation online
- icons are missing, the path is not good, needs to be fixed

Appart from that is seems to work fine !

Now I have to start FIXING !

Posted by DouD_ 2007-03-07

Installation testing

I am right now testing the install doc (the one in the realease is not up to date).
And there are some bugs due to the register_global parameter in php.ini.

Posted by DouD_ 2007-03-07


The Documentation has been modified and translated into english (at last) !!!
It now explains how to install w3OS and get the lib is needs to run (DOMAPI).

Posted by DouD_ 2007-03-07


Ok, I fixed the previous OUPSs !
Now realease is clean, no old files, no licenced images (apart maybe for some backgrounds ???).

Posted by DouD_ 2007-03-07


The current v4_01a.zip had licenced files inside, I am currently cleaning the realease !
I also noticed a missed step in the installation doc !
Will post when everything is OK !

Install script, help apreciated !

I realized that installation of the platform is a bit hard, configuring and stuff.
I am about to make version with a installation script. All you will need to have is a working xAMP solution.
If anyone has already done this his help would be most welcome. It would essentially save me time on this !

Futur is to make a installation package for Linux and Windows.

Posted by DouD_ 2007-03-07


Stats tell me that already 8 downloads have been made in less than 24hours.
I will be happy to help anyone to get w3Os up and running !

Posted by DouD_ 2007-03-06

First release !

And voila !
The first release of w3OS is available for download !
I am sorry but for the meantime the code isn't licenced, and the provided package might not fully work on all apps.
I will post a fixed and tested version soon !

If you have any problem with that, drop me a line.
