For anything regarding other Qcodo community projects, including QForge, the Qcodo Manual Project, Zcodo/Qcubed, etc.
I'm very excited to announce that QCubed 1.0 RC2 is now ready and available for download. QCubed is a community effort to take QCodo to the next level.
This release includes dozens of bug fixes and multiple new examples. The goal of the release is to provide a stable platform that developers can build businesses on. The Core Contributors are committed to maintaining the 1.0 stable branch to fix security and serious functionality issues.
Core Contributors: <http://trac.qcu.be/projects/qcubed/wiki/QcubedContributors>
We will now await for your feedback to make sure 1.0 is indeed as stable as we want it to be; if all is well, we will declare RC2 a final 1.0 release in a couple weeks.
In the meantime, we will also start work on the 1.1 release - this is where all the new, exciting features will be added. Here's the long list of things we'll be working on. MySQL stored procedure support? Yes! Oracle adapter? Sure! Performance improvements? Hell yes! Unit and functional testing framework integrations? Of course!
And now, as always, we need your help. If you've written custom code for QCubed or QCodo that you think might be useful for others, and are interested in sharing it, please let us know - post a note on the forums or just open a ticket.
Why is this post in official blog ?
We can read about qcubed in many threads on this forum, so why also on official blog ? Is it official fork or ?
The reason this is an official post is because Mike Ho, creator of Qcodo, trusted Mike Hostetler enough to grant him Qcodo Administrator status.
Qcubed is not an 'official' Qcodo fork, but Qcubed is definitely a valid fork, headed by talented developers (Mike Hostetler is one) who've used Qcodo for a very long time, and are dedicated to advancing the great work Mike Ho started.
So the path that Qcubed is taking is probably not exactly the same path Mike Ho would take, but they have fixed many bugs and made many improvements, whereas Qcodo has been stagnant for quite some time.
If I were starting out from scratch now, I would go with Qcubed.
One more thing to note is that the goal for QCubed 1.0 is to be PERFECTLY backward-compatible with QCodo beta 3. So if you're using a QCodo beta 3 build in your production environment, do give QCubed 1.0 a shot - we're very much committed to maintaining a stable and supported release.
The biggest reason why I switched my production application to QCubed is the long list of QCubed Core Contributors (<http://trac.qcu.be/projects/qcubed/wiki/QcubedContributors>). You'll recognize the names of each from QCodo forums. Each has their own production application in the pot - so the level of commitment is very high.
QCubed is a community effort to take QCodo further - join us! <http://qcu.be>
Awesome. I was going to hold out till a official stable version of qcubed, but I guess I can start developing on Qcubed RC2 and update to 1.0 when it comes out. This is a great framework and I hope the community continue to grow. Great Job guys!
Thanks, this is great stuff!
Grand! All aboard the QCubed train!
