Disappointed - PHP-Nuke 6.9
PHP-Nukescouser writes "I have been a great admirer of the PHP-Nuke system having upgraded through to 6.5 from 5.5.

I have also supported FB as a club member for the last 12 months.

I have no intention to re-start the recent flame war, but I am beginning to question the integrity of the whole PHP-nuke system.

In my opinion, PHP-Nuke 6.5 has become a milestone version - almost the definitive version for people to use.

Versions 6.6, 6.7, 6.8, 6.9 - these have been very disappointing and in many respects a backward step in diverting time and resources.

As quickly as bugs are found and 'fixed' a 'new version' is released - BUT - with admiration and respect to chatserv and, many of the fixes identified in July in version 6.8 have not been included by FB in the latest 6.9 version.

does that surprise you? that's the way most of the fixes and addons have been added in past releases (so it seems to me)

many of the updates have been half-assed, even with nukecops providing step-by-step instructions, replacement files, etc (which requires NO EFFORT whatsoever), it still takes forever for him to apply the fixes to his releases

heh, but the one thing that really annoyed me about past releases, was with 6.8, when it was released with an obvious 'include' error in the news module, which of course shows up on the main page when you first install 6.8..

i assume he doesn't even test his releases, just slaps stuff together and starts charging? interesting...

I, too, continue with 6.5. This will probably be the version I stay with until I die.

I don't think integrity and phpNuke have anything in common, however, integrity and NukeCops go hand in hand. I am to the point that I download absolutely nothing unless I read it or see it here. I would image the NukeCops v6.9 will contain all of the latest tested fixes available.

I still grapple with the fact that security patches are being released as program versions, but in the world of phpNuke, anything goes!

IMO it's impossible to run any site where you're updating software versions every single month. I don't mind swapping out specific updated files or adding patches but not all the files not every single month. I haven't downloaded 6.6 - 6.9. Except for some minor features, they're basically what's in the security packs.

IMO the numbering should have been more like 6.5.1, 6.5.2, 6.5.3, 6.5.4. FB has always jumped over a bunch of numbers though to give people the impression the software is more mature than it really is. Old programming trick.

I still think it's funny (personally and professionally) that you see more development, more support (uhh hello, forums in a CMS?), and more community spirit from THIS site than ever had.

Well maybe funny's not the right word, but it's definitely a HUGE credit to Nukecops for carrying the football with thousands on it's back.
