XOOPS 2.5.4 Release Candidate available

There is a new release candidate for XOOPS 2.5.4 on the mirrors. In addition to updating its internal libraries to their latest versions: phpMailer (5.1), TinyMCE (3.4.6), jQuery (1.6.4), and jQueryUI (1.8.16), the major focus of this release is on converting all Core modules (PM, Profile, Protector) to a new ModuleAdmin GUI, so all of them have a consistent “look & feel”.

The new Module GUI will be the official GUI for all modules supported by XOOPS, and will drive:

  • Increased productivity
  • Decreased training and support costs
  • Reduced development time and costs
  • Reduced maintenance costs
  • Increased customer satisfaction

As their next course of action, the XOOPS Project will be working on a “Basic Module Pack”, which will contain the most popular XOOPS modules in one user-friendly package, all with the new Module GUI.

Here are some screenshots from this new RC:
