PhpConcept is proud to announce the release of the stable 1.3 version of PclZip.

After 4 "Release Candidate" which gives the ability to correct bugs and introduce new features, PclZip is now available. PclZip 1.3 is fully documented in ... french ... the english documentation is on its way, and will be released pieces by pieces as soon as a new part is translated.

This version introduce major features while maintaining the actual features and usages. The upgarde of source code using former version of PclZip should not generate problems. However if you are not confident, have a first look at the release note to see the changes.

A short "What's new" :

  • Introduction of "Call-back" functions that gives the ability to control the adding or extraction process,
  • New specific features (removing of all the file path, modification of the file mode, ...)
  • New handling of error functions

New Project :
PhpWindowSystem

PhpConcept is pleased to announce the launch of a new project. It is not only a concept or a smart idea, but also started work, which already looks great.
To be convinced, have a look to the demonstration.

PhpWindowSystem (PWS) is a library that offer a quick way to create an application (with all its windows and menu bars) and to manage the associated events. The graphical part of the application is described in an XML file, the main script is very simple and you just have to complete the work with your own code, using a 'document' class which makes the link with the PWS library.

PhpWindowSystem (PWS) is based on several core classes and a big number of add-ons modules ... that you still have to develop !
The idea is to allow everyone to create generic modules, that will be shared with others, through PhpConcept web site, or independently. A first module was written (see the demonstration) to show the principle behind the add-on module part of PWS.

To allow a quick development of PhpWindowSystem, the license will be the LGPL. However the add-ons modules might be released under the GPL, if the authors which it.

Today PWS can be demonstrated (see the demonstration), and the source code are available. However some works are still under way before a first beta release.

To be informed of the PhpWindowSystem evolution, register to the (low traffic) mailing list.
For reactions, contact me.

PhpZip 1.7-Alpha

PhpZip application is now supporting the ZIP archive format !

The PclZip library is available since sometimes and everybody's wondering, why PhpZip was not supporting ZIP format. Some works where under way to enhance the view of the archive content, so it must be at least usable before releasing the version. (see the new functions)

You will also notice that the 1.7 version is in 'alpha' state, because I didn't test it a lot, but it should be useable with no major problems. You will be the final juge of its stability. I did the alpha release in order to stop the development in the current train, and start developping the 2.0 version, with more friendly user interfaces (more pop-ups and buttons) and under PHP4 for all its new functions (sessions, performances, ...).
So I will stop the dev under PHP3.
