Hi Every one,
finally it seems that CM2F is finally become both powerfull and stable. the last release has been installaed and configured in several websites without any problems.
They are still a couple of functionality glitches that are just extra features that have been implemented.
I am now concentrating my last efforts into the Installation script in order to solve the issue with the configuration of the cm2f_extension file.
Once this is done, Cm2F will finally be moved into a FINAL status before moving to the 1.0 version.
It has been quite a long way since i have started this mod. Back then it was called M2F, and although i had a very clear roadmap in my head, i didn't knew the size of the step that i was about to give.
But this doesn't mean that the development is ending, because i have already tested new features and CMS to be supported.
The next bing step is ( and i am sorry phpbb to say it here) to emancipate CM2F from PhpBB ... Yes, to allow CM2F to work with to integrate other forums, so, just like i have been able to make a mult CMS version, i am now working on a MultiForum one, with a multimap functionality that allows CM2F to link internal fields with external forums fields.
I have been making tests with a couple of other Forums, and although i have not yet a production version, i am at this phase able to have messages being imported into PunBB, SimpleBoard, NewBB, Xarbb and InvisionBoard.
Not bad for a start.
At the same time i am refining some of CM2F code :
- messages bodies replies and signatures detection for removal,
- self update scripts, that allows the system to self update it self from a central site.
So this is just the first big step into a new journey ...
