The developers of Xoops, short for eXtensible Object Oriented Portal System, have released a new version and have given it the version number 2.2.3. This application is written in PHP and uses MySQL to store the necessary data. Xoops is a CMS that can be used for a large number of purposes, such as a weblog, portal or internet shop. By making use of modules Xoops can be adapted to your personal preferences. The included announcement looks like this:
The road to XOOPS 2.2.3 has been long and hard and has not been a very comfortable ride. The early releases were rushed, not tested enough and left the XOOPS community in distress as to what they could expect of a XOOPS release. We have remedied this with the release of XOOPS 2.2.3 Final. This release has been carefully preceded by two RC snapshot processes where functional bugs were found and fixed.
During the day, a number of people have reported problems when upgrading from XOOPS 2.0.x to 2.2.3 Final. This was caused by a faulty update routine which has now been fixed. I have updated the 18.104.22.168 to 2.2.3 Final patch and 2.2.3 Final full package as well as the 2.2 to 2.2.3 Final update patch – just to be on the safe side. They now have a “2.2.3a-Final” in the filename. The version has not been incremented inside the package as this had only to do with the update routines and not the actual core files.
