Ninjaboard 1.2 nightly builds available
31 July, 2011
The first alpha build of 1.2 is now available on our beta channel!
No builds from the beta channel is recommended for production sites. Please don't install this on live sites, it's very unstable and we don't expect it to be usable until beta status.
We're currently refactoring our codebase to not only use Nooku Framework Alpha 3 (Ninjaboard 1.1 is on Alpha 2, and the differences between the two is like Joomla 1.5 vs 1.6), but also to work on Joomla 1.6, 1.7 and on Nooku Server.
Wait, this is a Nooku extension, shouldn't it work out of the box with all of these platforms especially Nooku Server?
Ninjaboard have been able to run on Nooku Server all along as long as the Nooku Server shipped with the same revision of Nooku Framework as Ninjaboard.
Nooku Server got a lot of new innovations in terms of what we can do in the administrator UI using CSS3 flex layouts and more, and we intend to take full advantage of those.
This build of Ninjaboard 1.2 focused on making the installer and built in updater work seamlessly on these 3 new platforms. So you can install it, and use the dashboard "Check for Updates…" button for updating to the latest nightly build.
Other than that, the code in 1.2 is extremely "work in progress" right now, so very little of the overall functionality of Ninjaboard is working.
Since 1.2 is expected to be very unstable during the alpha stages we'd like to ask everyone to wait with testing for bugs until we reach beta.
