As more and more hosts are offering in addition to PHP 5.4.x also PHP 5.5.x, it was important that we update and certify XOOPS for PHP 5.5.x as well.
Today we are happy to release for testing XOOPS 2.5.7 Beta 1, that will run without any problems on PHP 5.5.x
This release is focused on PHP 5.5.x compatibility, security enhancements, and bug fixes.
But we have included one new cool thing: the xBootstrap theme, based on Bootstrap
See the Changelog below for more details.
Minimum PHP Version: 5.3.7
Please note: the fact that the XOOPS Core runs correctly on PHP 5.5.x, doesn't mean that all your modules will run correctly, therefore you'll need to test them first.
The recently released modules that qualify for our Basic Module Pack, are all tested on PHP 5.5.x, and they should run just fine.
For all others, please let us know about any issues you might have.
Download: SourceForge File Repository.
Please remember: This is a Beta Release version for features testing only!!!!
DO NOT install it on a production site and DO NOT upgrade any production site with it!!!
Please post and discuss all issues related to this release in this forum thread

Testing the XOOPS 2.5.6 Basic Module Pack - Beta 1 can be sometimes frustrating, if you have to install and uninstall the modules again and again, and you have to do it individually one by one.
Normally the option to select bunch of modules and install/unistall them at once should be a standard feature, but because we are not adding new features to XOOPS Core, I've decided to create a module that would do it for me.
Fortunately, we already have the feature in the XOOPS Installer when we're installing XOOPS for the first time. During the installation process XOOPS presents you with PM, Profile, and Protector modules, and you can choose which ones, if any, you want to install.
So I took the code from there and have made a module out of it: ModuleInstaller.
And I've added "Unistall" feature as well, where you can select several modules and uninstall them at once:
You can download the module from XOOPS File Repository
This module will become part of each of the Module Packs, to make installation easier.
Please help us with testing of the XOOPS 2.5.6 Basic Module Pack

Thanks to Bleekk and the XOOPS Germany team, we have now "Drag & Drop" incorporated into MyMenus Module.
In the picture below, you can see the links as bars that you can drag around to set the sorting, as well as the sub-links:
Also incorporated are changes from Luciorota, who added an option to use skins from the theme.
As always, it is great to see when developers are working as team and are helping each other!
Please test it and let us know if you encounter any problems.
