One of the most exciting things that happened at TikiFestUK2 besides the food was the planning of the final steps to the 1.9 release. It was decided that 1.9 should have a modular installation system for some of the lesser used components of the TikiWiki system, such as ))Tiki-Sheet,Tiki-Maps((, phpCAS and Galaxia.
The modular installation system is currently in big development and already many things have been made into a modular install.
The goal to have a smaller installation base without having code that depends on third party applications...
- Tiki-Maps - This requires Mapserver, Mapserver requires really you have to your own server so that you can install there modules. Only a small handful of TikiFriendlyHosts have this enabled for you.
- Galaxia - Well if you use it you need an award.
- Themes - Many, many themes will be leaving BRANCH-1-9 and future installations and becoming “mods”, already these have moved:
the TikiWiki mods is now the place for all new theme contributions, some more of the existing will move to mods before 1.9 is released.
Other things that will be moved to mods include:
- homework (possible)
- pdflib fonts
- each language file
you then click the languages you want available to your site and install them
