On This Episode: Douglas Bell (Fountain of Apples) and David Lewis (Highway of Life)
We return from our two week vacation from TalkShoe to bring you an episode chalk full of announcements. First off, our own David Lewis is now on the MOD Team: Douglas leads the congratulations and also talks a bit about what it will mean for the show. It’s official: phpBB won the Sourceforge Community Choice Award for Best Project for Communications, beating out YaBB, Pidgin (formerly known as Gaim), and many other projects. This means that Bertie has a new Thingamagoop to play with and phpBB has major boasting rights for the next year. David and Douglas talk a bit about the other winning projects, the awards ceremony in Oregon, and thank the phpBB community for coming together to vote for phpBB. It’s also someone’s birthday today, and we report that the version number of the phpBB3 CVS has been upped from 3.0.RC4-dev to 3.0.RC4. Sure enough, less than half an hour after this show ends, phpBB3 Release Candidate 4 is released.
David couldn’t stay very long due to his job calling him away to Dallas, Texas without warning this weekend, so his planned segment on phpBB3 modules will be postponed until a few weeks off. However, Douglas talks a bit about the MOD Team’s release of MODX 1.0.1 this week, covering what’s new, and then sharing some of his opinions of MODX and where the MOD Team should focus to improve the accessibility of MODX.
The MOD of the Week is Guest See Only First Post by Wicher, and the Style of the Week is Glass by DoubleJ. If you’d like to point out a noteworthy MOD or Style for us to feature on the show, bookmark it on del.icio.us with the tag “phpbbwmod” or “phpbbwstyle” (without quotes), and we’ll see about mentioning it on a future episode!
