Joomla 1.6 Release date and mootools 1.2?

Post by matt_nz » Mon Oct 13, 2008 9:13 pm

Hi, can anyone who is on development team, or cosy with them please let me know:

A guess of when 1.6 will be released.
Whether 1.6 will have mootools 1.2.

I am writing a component at the moment, I know mootools 1.2 already, so if 1.6 has v1.2 then I can just continue to use 1.2 in my component.

Thanks,

Matt.

No date has been set for the release of Joomla! 1.6, lots of work still has to be done. One of the accepted whitepapers for 1.6 is indeed an upgrade to mootools 1.2.

Can you please give me your best guess on a release time. I know this guess may end up being way out, but if you can tell me whether you think 3 weeks is likely, or 3 months is likely, then I can decide whether to learn mootools 1.11

Thanks,

Matt.

Is there a public list available with features that Joomla 1.6 is expected to have or does anyone know if subcategories will be included in this version?

Thank you

Here are the features that are supposed to go in 1.6. Don't know if that is possible the the current number of active developers.

It's not for download in packages (it's not even in alpha yet), though you can create your own by downloading the source from SVN (With TortoiseSVN, for example).

Sweet, I have learnt Mootolls 1.11 already, and got a component going with it. I just wanted to check 1.6 wasn't going to be released in a week or 2, as I could just do it mootools 1.2 style if that was the case.

i beg to differ.

It is a lot longer than i thought.

Can someone please make some sort of roadmap or at leats give a general guideline as to when a beta might be achieved.???

Leaving people totally in the dark really does suck a lot when you have to try and make the decision to spend a lot of money on a custom component only to find it wont work with the next version of joomla.

dont it once already and would rather have a approximate date and it be wrong by months than have nothing at all.

And dont tell me to be patient either. If you want us to all be patient then we all want you to commit to a date and try to hit it. if you miss then you miss. it will simply make you better at estimating completion of the different projects next time. its not like people would moan about it for long anyway.

Cmon give us a date so we can at least have something to work from.

There is a link somewhere that has a list of show stopping features for Alpha. Don't know where off hand, but it should be on one of the lists somewhere.

Once we get those features done, we hit alpha. After that, AFAIK, we go to time boxed releases until we hit stable.

Thank you for the reply.
I have seen the list before now alo. i am not sure where but i am sure i could find it again ina few mins.

has the "timed box" bit been formalised yet as in how big the boxes will be or how long etc??

i saw a post from another dev which mentioend that he hoped to have no more than 4 beta versions.

so could we call it a fairly safe bet that we will see a betaversion within the next month or two. and from that point perhaps another 2 months to stable.

Is that a reasonable assumption or am i being overeager and it would really be more like three and three.?

Just want opinions doesnt have to be hard facts.

This is very irritating and unformal. The community needs to be better informed on when things are going to happen even it is just Alpha. This sucks that we need, and I express NEED, a lot of the features in 1.6 and don't now how long we will have to wait. I need to purchase a lot of the features it has if it is going to still be a year. if it is three months i can get by.

It's ready when it's ready, but it probably won't be there before september. The second alpha will come six weeks after the first release. It'd not sure yet how many alpha's beta's will be there, since 1.6 is not feature complete yet.

The best way to follow development is to read the developer mailing list (meaning I don't exactly know how many active developers there are at the moment).

I think this is appropriate to post in this thread. If not please remove.

In anticipation of the 1.6 release date, I have followed the below links to be able to use the latest release of Mootools with Joomla 1.5 front end.

http://www.dwightjack.com/diary/2009/02 ... joomla-15/
http://www.dwightjack.com/diary/2009/06 ... joomla-15/

Note the update (again) section at the bottom of the second link.

I am developing a custom component that makes heavy use of AJAX and plan on upgrading to 1.6 as soon as it is released. So far I have not had any issues developing with Mootools 1.2.3 core and 1.2.3.1 more with my custom component following the above method. I also haven't noticed any issues with com_content, com_user. The method above also allows you to exclude modules from the Mootools 1.2 fix for Joomla and process them under the Mootools 1.11 framework. Yes end users end up downloading both versions of Mootools.

Hopefully this helps others.

At the moment.. No, don't use 1.6 at this time. It's in alpha stage.
As soon as they are releasing a stable version there will also be migration scripts.

Hi Buddy

No No, Not going to use it until its offically release.

I was just wondering, if it was going to be possible to upgrade from 1.5.15 to 1.6

Example, I'm going to start doing work on my website (www.irishdave.ie) and install the latest Joomla (1.5.15) but when 1.6 comes out, can I just upgrade? Will I be able to without losing any pages, etc...

or do I have to start the site all over.

Thanks
