PHsPeed version 3.0 released.

After extensive testing we are proud to release version 3.0

This version contains many improvements, and you can find the details in the Release Notes that you can find on the download page.

If you are a customer, you must download the latest installer to use version 3.0. If you are a user of the pre-release of 3.0, then an upgrade notice will appear automatically.

One significant improvement is that you can run multiple versions of PHsPeed together. We removed the dependencies, and now all PHsPeed software is installed in one folder. If you want to uninstall, you can delete the install folder, and it's gone. We do not store items in the registry; all setup is saved in an ini file that is part of the main install folder. That is also the reason why you don't find an uninstall option in the Windows applications section.

In comparison with the previous release, you will see that we have a new user interface. It now follows the standard application development workflow and is the result of the hard work of our front-end designer. It is different, but our developers got used to it very soon, and we haven't heard anything bad about it from our beta testers.

Other enhancements are that we have released our first document that contains a PHsPeed primer and a PHP primer (for novice developers). And we will release some basic courseware soon. We have released some new videos on our YouTube channel, and there are more on their way. Of course, we have also been improving our manual, which is a continuous process.

So a lot is going on currently. We hope that you will enjoy our new release. We're happy to answer your questions and read your comments.

Oh, before I forget, we also restarted our webinars. If you are new to PHsPeed, they are a great way if you want to be introduced. We also provide instruction on a private level.

Happy coding!

Version 2.3.1 Released

Today we released version 2.3.1...

This release involves further enhancements of the IDE. The release notes can be found here.

This version will verify the defined MariaDB/MySQL port of the loaded project and the configured port and will pop up a dialog to correct the connection. This is implemented to fix the issue reported by our current user pool. The original port 3306 was changed to 3307 which caused issues with older projects.

The (sample) project loader has been upgraded to support the creation of the sample database (if required).

This release also brings an updated implementation of PHP 8.2 and XDebug. Both modules are not been formally released yet, and we deploy the current release candidates. The debugger is not fully tested yet, but it now works on PHP 8.2.

New releases for the modules are optional. If you have a recent version of PHsPeed, then run the config utility and select the incremental updates. New installs should do this automatically; if not, you can use the same procedure. New releases are always announced in our newsletter (subscribe if you haven't), our website, and the IDE landing page.

Version 2.3 Released

Today we released version 2.3

Although this version is mainly a maintenance release, several things have changed. The first important thing is that you cannot upgrade your current PHsPeed version, but you need to install this version as a new release. There is no dependency anymore on the central ini file. Instead, each version from now on can be installed separately. If you want to uninstall PHsPeed, then just remove the folder. PHsPeed does not store data in your registry.

Some changes affect your current projects, especially on grids used in crud environments. You will find these in the release notes.

Happy coding!
