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.
