osCMax Development Update : Fully updated installer, Easypopulate and more
Continuing the trend of more commits to the SVN repository for osCMax RC4, I have finished updating the installer for osCMax.
As of today the RC4 development branch is fully free from any register globals on dependencies. All core components have been updated and barring any new found issues, all the installed mods are also working with register globals off.
With each update we get that much closer to a full RC4 release package.
This week the updates to the RC4 branch include:
Upgrade Easypopulate from 2.72 to 2.76g
osCMax Installer upgrade to RC2a : Full Register Globals Off Compatibility.
Bug Fix: 244 - Purchased gift voucher not going to queue.
RC4 Testers Needed
As the release of RC4 approaches, we need volunteers to help test the new code, and put it through its paces. I have been testing, but it is too big a job for just one person, with the thousands of features in osCMax. I would like any volunteers to join our new RC4 test group and we will start organizing the structure of the testing team.
While I am organizing the initial group setup, I cannot take on the additional responsibility of organizing and managing the testing team, so we are also in need of a team leader to head up this new group. If you are interested in heading up the testing team, or being a member, join the group here: Official osCMax RC4 Testers
