PHP-Fusion 7.00.07

It is with great pleasure that I announce the immediate availability of PHP-Fusion 7.00.07! This release is a bugfix release, which fixes the following issues:

- preg_match error in maincore.php
- version number update
- year 2010 hard-coded

As usual, there is a full release package and an update package containing only the changed files. This time, a combo update is also provided for those who had not updated to 7.00.06 yet due to the preg_match error. The combo update contains the files from the 7.00.06 and 7.00.07 update packages.

I hope you will like this release as much as any other. I will soon post an update on the development of PHP-Fusion 7.01. Thank you once more for your continued support to PHP-Fusion!

Finally Multibyte - Phenotype 3.0

Until now it was quite complicated to realize UTF-8 sites with Phenotype. Although every page can have it's own content-type/encoding, there was no way around the fact that Phenotype stored all user input ISO-8859-1 encoded.

Those days are over ... ;). From now all string operations of Phenotype are multibyte safe and the default encoding and storage is UTF-8.

AdaptCMS 2.0

Skins and Smarty

A few of the new things I'll be going over is either is something new or something updated, in this case kind of a mix of both. While it is a template system, the new system is very different from AdaptCMS 1.x. First off the old fashioned {name} tag system has been replaced with Smarty, a very useful and versatile template system which not only handles tags (and better and easier) but also caching.

With the use of smarty templates are now also stored via a physical file. Another new part of the skin system is actual "skins". So you have a "main" skin, but to test out your new layout you create a "beta" skin to see how everything looks - somewhat like what you'll see in AdaptBB.

Media

Another changed feature from AdaptCMS 1.x, "Media" replaces gallery. On the ACP side of things, the interface is completely different and more user-friendly.

All your media galleries are listed with quick links (to add to, edit or delete) as well as a little thumbnail. Below that is the traditional file list with an option to show all files or only files not linked to an a media album.

The frontend side of things are not done yet, but a new JS slideshow and pic preview will be in, more features and true functionality for media other than just pictures. (such as video support)

Comments

Not a big feature, but it has still seen a lot of improvement since 1.x. In the backend, comments has gone to strictly being under "edit content". When you go to edit a content piece, near the bottom, will be the associated comments where you can edit the comment text, e-mail or choose to delete. It is also paginated so 100 comments aren't all shown. {#emotions_dlg.smiley-wink}

In the frontend the feature stays pretty much the same, functionality wise. Two new features, however, is the ability to "rate" a comment and to be able to report it. (report isn't in yet) This will help the comment system catch up to other sites and make it easier to get rid of the bad ones (like spam).

Conclusion

That about does it for now. Now since the progress on the script is out of the boring "re-code" stages where there was hardly anything new to report about, the upcoming stage is new features which will bring a lot more updates.

Stay tuned!

ocPortal 4.3 RC3 released

Version 4.3 RC3 has now been released. This is a release candidate for version 4.3. Upgrading is not recommended for live sites, as this is a pre-release.

To upgrade follow the steps in your website's http://mybaseurl/upgrader.php script. You will need to copy the URL of the attached TAR file as one of these steps ("3: Upload an upgrade TAR for extraction").


» alternatively (but not recommended), you can manually upload the files inside the attached TAR file over existing files (7-zip is just one of many tools for tar files). This is not recommended because it will bypass the upgraders addon-aware extraction algorithm and potentially cause problems.

MODx Revolution Loses Weight, Runs Faster and Helps You

With over 75 bugfixes, improvements and changes, there is significant new coolness that will hopefully make the life of MODx users much better. Here's a brief but meaty list of the key improvements/changes:

  • Cleaner, more refined MODx Revolution Manager interface makes it easier on the eyes and a little more intuitive—more improvements still yet to come. The manager UI design has been improved (and will continue to be until GA).
  • Manager sheds weight (megabytes and requests), speeds up and makes your browser happy with CSS and JavaScript optimizations. The Manager feels more snappy and responsive.
  • Setup is now faster & lighter, more options, easier to customize and switches from Mootools to ExtCore. The setup process has been streamlined and is now more efficient and modular.
  • More speed, less junk, better code. MODx Revolution moves to PHP 5.1.1+. and optimized for PHP5.
  • Search, sort, review and download packages from the Manager. A brand-new, REST-based Package Management system allows for sorting, better details, and faster loading.
  • Display only Addons and Packages for your MODx Revolution Version. Package Management now restricts display and downloading Packages that aren't supported by your MODx Revolution version.
  • Get Help from the Manager. Inline help is now available on most pages that connects directly to the MODx Official Documentation.

MDPro 1.083

We are not sleeping in MDPro development, in upcoming months we will release MDPro 1.083 stable version! As our earliest concept while launched the MDLite version, our development still focus more on the improvement of the existing core, modules and blocks to make it stable, less of bugs, slim codes and functional. Importantly, the team also prepare some new modules and blocks separately which are not included in this package. Doing this way users are able to select any module that will suite to their production site without have to install features which are not fit with their requirements.

However, we would like to admit that it is not easy for all of us to spare our time to post what are we doing in the background. Thanks to TiMax, skinale, cradle2, Cyblenoir who are able to devote their time working in MDPro SVN development. In MDPro we still need someone that can help us in the documentation area, we know documentation is important and we try our best to improve that part as well. If you would like to contribute in this project please let us know, you can send an email to this address timax at maxdev dot com.
