Release of XOOPS 2.3.0 RC2

The XOOPS Development Team is pleased to announce the release of XOOPS 2.3.0 RC2.
The objective of XOOPS 2.3 releases is to merge the two existent branches of 2.0 and 2.2 and to build a bridge towards our next generation of system XOOPS 3.0.

We appreciate very much all your feedback and feature requests received after previous releases, and based on that this Release Candidate brings several major improvements:

  • Extended Profile included
  • Private Messages included
  • Extended DHTML included as default
  • Added EXM Admin GUI

We've also changed the module logo design to clearly show modules that are compatible with 2.3

We believe that with that XOOPS 2.3 is "feature ready" for the Final Release. We need only to get rid of all potential bugs, and we need your help in that!!!

With XOOPS 2.3 releases, users will be able to learn some of new features that will be available in XOOPS 3.0, while developers can understand better the direction of XOOPS development, and designers can learn what features will be supported in the future.
Both backward and forward compatibility will be guaranteed as much as possible. Modules written for 2.0. and 2.2. will work with 2.3; applications developed for 2.3 will be compatible with XOOPS 3.0 automatically.
Developers are encouraged to write their application modules on XOOPS 2.3 so they can incorporate some of the new features and ensure easy migration to XOOPS 3.0.

The RC release is freezing the key features for this release with some minor improvements introduced in the specific release.

Please remember: This release is ONLY for testing! Do NOT use it on productions sites. And if you're installing it over previous test installation, make a BACKUP first!
Please also note that some hacks done for previous XOOPS versions might not work with this release: testing before installing is always a good choice
