  • phpFox 2019 plan

    phpFox 2019 plan

    A new year has come, and it is time that we gather to discuss the phpFox 2019 plan. As you may know, we end 2018 with the initial release of mobile on par of the Performance improvement for the platform core in version 4.7.x. This year we continue our commitment to building phpFox as the most powerful and tech-innovative social network software. Let's talk a bit more detail about 2019 roadmap.  phpFox Mobile Apps The initial Mobile Apps version is one of the biggest releases that we did in 2018. With good feedback from the community, we believe that our mobile apps are an essential part of any online community. In 2019 we will continue to stabilize the apps and define an integration method for our third-party apps. Documents and announcements regarding mobile apps integration are expected to be live before the 2nd Quarter of the year. After announcing the mobile integration method, we will also work on the official certified Mobile Apps Development partners. Partners who pass our qualifying conditions will have full access to our source code and documents so that they can able to customize phpFox mobile apps as per clients' need. From that time, clients who need to modify their mobile apps can contact either phpFox or our partners.  A New Chat / Communication Integration As you may know, phpFox already comes with a built-in IM Chat app with basic chatting features. We understand that in big organizations and communities, they need more than these basic features. So in this 2019, one of our focus will be developing or integrating a communication/chat tool that has advanced communication features that everyone loves. These include but not limited to group chat, better file sharing, supporting audio and video call, etc. Of course, the new Chat app will be fully integrated to our flagship mobile applications.  The new phpFox look-n-feel with Mobile First Design In recent years, mobile devices are gradually replacing traditional desktops for online activities. We at phpFox recognized this trend will significantly affect user experience for any online communities. As a result, we will start developing a new phpFox version that adapts this emerging trend. On the new version, we will focus on optimizing mobile experience by embracing the latest Front-end technology (w/ React eco-system). An initial release is expected to come at the end of 2019 or the beginning of 2020. Any customers who have active software upgrade subscriptions are eligible to access. So stay tuned for any updates.  The phpFox Cloud Development SaaS (Software as a Service) is the global trend nowadays and phpFox is not an exception. We have thought about it seriously recent years but we had put more priority on building the phpFox core software before getting our feet wet with the cloud. In 2019, we will dedicate more effort on architecting and developing a cloud-based version for phpFox. Basically, the cloud version will have similar features as the self-hosted version, excepts the fact that community administrators do not need to have any experience on technologies as well as infrastructure management. We will keep you update on this as soon as we have an update.  phpFox Self-hosted Improvement Even there are more additions to the phpFox eco-system, we commit to having continuous improvements for phpFox. We will do yearly revise to improve security, performance, and scalability of the platform. We will also provide more tools to help self-hosted clients easier to deploy and manage their communities.  Supporting Quality Improvement Last but not least, one of our priority in 2019 is improving our supporting quality. We have currently put more focus on training supporting staffs for the US office so that they can help to resolve customer's queries better. As a result, you can expect to have faster responses from our staffs as soon as you need our assistance.  Now all you have to do is to prepare yourself to take off as we fly together to a successful 2019. Just make sure to follow our Social Media channels to keep you updated. Be sure to follow our Twitter and Facebook Page to get the most recent news.

    phpFox 2018 Year In Review

    The year 2019 is almost here. As usual, it is always the special moment to look back what we have done in 2018. We are so proud to see that all objectives of Plan 2018 have been completed perfectly so far. 2018 is definitely one of our most exciting and energizing years. Now, let's take a seat, have some wine and join us in the phpFox 2018 Year In Review.phpFox 4.6.0 - New layout standards for the future The year 2018 started with the official release of version 4.6.0 in January.  In this release, we have defined new standards for the future. This is one of our big upgrades with many significant improvements in layout structure. Especially, we introduce the new and beautifully designed template – The Material Template, as one of the default templates in phpFox from this version onwards. Also, we ported all Core apps to standalone apps and publish them in the phpFox store to be more convenient for maintenance and upgrade in the future. phpFox 4.6.1 - New organization and layout of AdminCP Our team started implementing version 4.6.1 right after the release of version 4.6.0. The Developer and Official Releases of 4.6.1 came in March and April. In 4.6.1, on top of maintaining to make the Core more stable, we studied user behaviors and redesigned the new layout for AdminCP. With new AdminCP, we removed all disadvantages, organize menus and features for Admins to manage phpFox sites more conveniently. We then released 6 minor updates for this version to fix known issues and gradually add more improvements. In particular, we released the phpFox 4.6.1 build 3 and build 4 for GDPR Compliance which will be officially applied from May 25th, 2018. The new phpFox Store The new phpFox Store is also our major and important project in the year 2018. Our expectation is to provide a better marketplace for third-party experts and our valued clients. In the new phpFox Store, we brought a brand new look on the Store including new layouts, designs, features… These changes primarily aim to improve user experiences upon finding apps, purchasing apps, installing apps and managing purchases.  The new Store also helps 3rd-party developers more convenient to manage products and licenses. In July, the project was done. You will be surprised if knowing how much effort we have put in this project. We were so delighted to bring you the new Store. phpFox 4.7.0 and 4.7.1 - Faster, better scalable and more phpFox version 4.7.0 was officially released in October 2018. In this update, we mainly set our focus on enhancing user experience with phpFox. Therefore, we spent our effort to modify and optimize several Core components of the system to ensure a fast, responsive yet stable platform. We gave our experiments and results in Performance Enhancement in phpFox 4.7.0 article that you may like to read it.Additionally, bolstering up the scalability of phpFox is our another target in version 4.7.0. The platform is now flexible and applicable to the expansion on server and database to deal with the large scale of requests from users.In November 2018, we continued releasing the phpFox 4.7.1 to improve current features and resolve known issues. phpFox Mobile app - The completed mobile readiness The long wait was over on December 2018 when we officially released both the iOS app and Android app. This is our most important goal in 2018. We have been receiving much positive feedback since the releases. Everyone knows how important to have mobile apps for social networks nowadays. Definitely, your phpFox Social Network needs a mobile app to get a comprehensive solution for social connection anytime, anywhere. That's it. What do you think about our works in 2018? Which releases are the most important o you? Please feel free to reach out and share us your thoughts.

  • phpFox 4.7.0 Sneak peek

    phpFox 4.7.0 Sneak peek

    All of us are counting down day by day to the official release of our Native Mobile app. However, we don't talk about Mobile app today. Instead, we are having another interesting update for you about new phpFox 4.7.0.It has been a few months since we released phpFox 4.6.0. Since then, we have been hard at work for the next version with many important updates. The long wait will soon be over as phpFox 4.7.0 is on the way to you for experiencing.Let us show you a little bit on what we have achieved in this new version! Significant enhancements on Performance Performance is always one of the key factors of websites to bring the best user experience. It is about how fast your web pages are loaded, or how quick your content can be delivered. In the beginning, when having low data volume and traffic, websites can be loaded quickly. However, when your site grows up with more user engagements, high traffic, and big data volume, your site will become slower and slower. Several surveys have shown that the page loading directly impacts the ratings, user retention rate, conversions, number of usages, and revenue from social network sites. You will get into trouble with slow performance site.Understanding the importance of high performance on social network sites, we have spent much effort to optimize the Core system in version 4.7.0. This will make phpFox performance outstanding from other social network platforms.Renovate Cache System Our team revamped phpFox Core Caching Library with a brand new system to guarantee a swift user experience on caching and loading your site. Optimize Database Structure A well-designed database provides quick access to essential information, phpFox 4.7.0 applies best practices in data modeling techniques and redefine a solid yet powerful database architecture. Improve Database Queries By analyzing and selecting the most efficient query evaluation plan from among various strategies, phpFox 4.7.0 accelerated the whole data manipulation process in term of execution time, complexity and server resources. Revise Codes Code quality is a significant element which we primarily focus on phpFox 4.7.0. Strong code requires less maintenance and reach the highest standard from load speed to user experience. We also did experiments to measure the performance of phpFox 4.7.0 in many simulated environments. The result is really amazing. And let's provide you detailed result in another blog soon.  Improve Scalability  Scalability reflects how well your social network site can adapt to a rapidly growing number of users. In particular, when there are significant changes in user accesses to your site and server reaches its limitation quickly, you will need to expand or add more servers to handle. The frequent question is given that how ease to do that without any modifications to the web application or platform. At this time, you have to care of the scalability of the website. Scalability is much more important to a social network site where a number of users grow up very fast. By understanding environmental workload conditions that your phpFox system is designed for, in version 4.7.0, phpFox ultimately targets on scalability. We take a further step to make phpFox scale well either on a cluster of dedicated servers or cloud services such as Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud Platform. With the support of the latest MySQL Group Replication technology, high-load phpFox social networks now can easily split the burden to multiple database servers.New App Releases Activity Point With Activity Point app, users can easily and smoothly manage settings and configurations of pointing system on both backend and frontend. As a stand-alone app, there will be no boundary or limit from the Core system. Additionally, Activity Point app opens a door for developers to take advantage on pointing system and use it in developing, modifying and adjusting features on their apps.Message Packed with a brand new design and various newly developed features, we understand your need for a modern and full-featured messaging app on phpFox. Therefore, in this ported app version, we conclusively work on not only perfecting current features but also developing new features. Message app will bring totally new Chatting experience to your users.And, along with new apps, we also upgraded several components of Core apps such as Photo & Material template to fix bugs, improve features and user experiences...  Support Skins on templates Template skins are simply available variations with pre-defined color set supported within certain templates. All of us love to have skins of templates which can save us much time when modifying the template. Upon selecting, the color styles of template skin will be automatically applied without the need of adjusting each and every theme component manually. Since phpFox 4.7.0, template creators will be able to design and create multiple skins for their phpFox themes.Certainly, we will have additional skins in the Material template on top of the blue one.That's all about main points of phpFox 4.7.0. What do you think about this release? Please share with us on Community or Ticket system. Have a good day and please stay tuned with us. We will be back very soon.
