The XOOPS Project in 2008

Closing an uneasy year of 2007, with some changes and heated discussions about the future of XOOPS, we are now entering a very promising and exciting 2008.

This year XOOPS is entering its 7th year of existence since its creation by Kazumi Ono, Goghs Cheng and their colleagues. We definitely hope that it will be the "Lucky Seven" for XOOPS and our community!

  1. Highlights of 2007

    1.1 The XOOPS development

    After major changes in core development team in July, we had three releases for XOOPS 2.0 series, providing major improvements and security fixes :

     * XOOPS 2.0.17 (2007-08-25)
     * XOOPS 2.0.17.1 (2007-10-12)
     * XOOPS 2.0.18 (2007-12-28)
    

    Meanwhile the development team has taken care of the XOOPS 2.2 users with maintenance releases:
    o XOOPS 2.2.5 (2007-08-27)
    o XOOPS 2.2.6 RC (2007-12-23)

    Looking forward to XOOPS future, we've discussed a roadmap and created two development branches :
    o XOOPS 2.30 (2007-10-19) for merging 2.0 and 2.2
    o XOOPS 3.00 (2007-10-19) for next major version

    Apart from the core development, we can see many other exciting progresses in the community, like the release of new module Yogurt, alpha release of CBB 4.0, continuous development of catzwolf's well known modules, new themes released by talented designers almost every week, as well as creative add-ons and improvements from third-party development teams like XoopsMexico, Instant-Zero, Smartfactory etc. which will be adopted and implemented in XOOPS 2.3 or 3.0 branches.
