Development has started once again!!

UPDATE: Originally we planned to release 2.5 stable after 2.5RC3, however, after fixing a lot of bugs in 2.5, we are going to release another RC version before the stable release. Hopefully we will get 2.5RC4 released in the near future (read in the next month or two at the latest). We are trying to polish off some of the high priority bugs such as the JPGraph and security issues before we release 2.5RC4.

Please, help us flush out any bugs by posting in the forums any issues you come across while using 2.5RC3 and 2.5RC4 (when it gets released).

Thanks! – PHPc Team

Thats a great news!!! We really appreciate this move. This is by far the most feature rich and lots to scope to improve and make it the best.

Many of the links are giving a 404 error, such as the “Features”, “Changelog”, etc. When will these pages be available?


#3 Judy Linza on 02.28.07 at 6:09 pm

We use phpcollab and love it. Are there any concerns with daylight savings time being changed?


#4 giorgio on 03.01.07 at 1:55 pm

great news! I think PHP-Collab is still the best project management tool around, so it is good to hear these news.

Glad to see you are back!
Can’t wait to test out the new ver.

Thanks for develop php-collab again! I had no notice about it! Will it be compatible with previous releases?

As a suggestion, it could have a module to work as an sophisticated interface to a SVN or CVS repository. May the File repository module work someday like a SVN or CVS, this will be great too, but I think many projects have files that must be separated from its source codes. So, the file repository don’t need to be complex like a SVN or CVS system. And also, a module to work with SVN and CVS will enable developers to easy integrate their already in production repositories to phpCollab. A project manager that already do this is Trac.

Another suggestion is a module specific to document the projects. Documentation is very important and if it is integrated with the project management, developers and collaborators could document while they build. Project documentation itself is a kind of project; but its texts, images, files, etc., could be together with the project and be auto generated in the client site, with a Wiki style. Documentation could work integrated with the repositories and have tight relationship with project changes.

By the way, I find phpCollab very intuitive and clean. Easy to understand and work. Keep it that way! There are few things that need to be fixed:

The Team Manual don’t mention anything about the Gantt graphs. Where are it?

I did not find any working demo of phpCollab in the Internet.

Many links in the website are not working, including the demo and the Wiki.

Is there any potential release date?

#14 Musaaf on 04.21.07 at 8:49 pm

What is hapenning with the project ?

Can anyone come up with a Fork of phpcollab.

The developers are real slow and giving the the lame excuse of Life problems and how busy they have become.

You should have thought about that before starting this project. This is how most of the Open Source Projects go down the drain.

Same old lame excuse.

#15 Musaaf on 04.22.07 at 12:17 pm

So now you have come to the evil tactics of removing the posts.

Wow, what a project leader.


#16 Serge on 05.08.07 at 12:29 pm

I want to try this project manager.
I you sure that you are going to relase a new RC ?
If not, I install the old version.

Best regards

#17 Zeca on 05.26.07 at 11:57 am

SO, whats the deal, are you still alive or not. I have been a phpCollab user for several years now. However the I have been seriously looking at ActiveCollab as an alternative. It has half the features but look twice as good (following the modern way apps should look). They are about to release a new version. It is a shame that you are not working faster on the development of phpCollab since I feel that it has become a dinosaur as far as apps go, but it has very good potential to be much better than the rest. PLEASE RELEASE A COOL NEW VERSION.

I am a phpCollab fan, but will be looking at alternatives in order to keep up with the times.

I just installed 2.4 and love it but certainly 2.5 is welcome. I would like to say thanks for all your efforts–and I do understand life issues, how anyone could blast you is beyond me. What have they done to contribute? Keep up the great work and hope to see 2.5 soon. CT out.

#19 Ryan L on 07.19.07 at 12:44 am

Very excited that the development has started back up again. I would like to start using phpCollab again I love using this tool! Last time I used it I felt the time tracking could have been improved also invoicing would save lots of time. Perhaps I can contribute with some developing. LMK. – Ryan

#20 Ryan D H on 09.30.07 at 10:49 pm

Are there screenshots available? I need to see what your software looks like before I download it and take the time to get it installed.

Please post some screenshots – Thanks!


#21 GuruBob on 04.28.08 at 1:54 pm

Hi CT – development on phpCollab has stalled. Yes, the guys have done some hard work but they shouldn’t keep saying “Development has started again!” and “new version coming soon” etc. They need to let go and let the community take over.

They might have missed the boat – a quick google shows that there’s a couple of forks of phpCollab already, but unfortunately they seem to suffer the same fate (not kept up to date, broken websites etc).

I extended phpCollab for an inhouse issue tracking system and it was fantastic. There’s a good starting point here for something really good but there just doesn’t seem to be support from the project admins for those who want to contribute.

#22 Tomasz Duziak on 07.03.08 at 11:27 am

it’s very exciting

#23 Ruben Espinoza on 01.05.09 at 9:08 pm

Sigh…I keep checking back every few months (or is it years) to see if any movement on this once outstanding project.

#24 Jimm Prazov on 01.27.09 at 1:02 am

It has long been looking for this information, Thank you for your work.
