About 4 months have passed since we released PHP-Fusion 9.0 RC 3.
Our new Main site based on PHP-Fusion 9 are progressing very well, however we are not quite ready yet. Please see the News image.
The main reason to why we postpone the sharp release is because we want to launch PHP-Fusion 9 with the new Main site.
In order to complete the new Main site based on 9 as we want it, we were lacking a tool. This tool are mentioned in the non-official Development plan for 9.x.
We decided to complete this tool for the initial 9 release and utilize it on the new Main site. The tool I am talking about here is a comprehensive site builder tool for your site.
It is simply not that easy to build a customized front page with your personal touch today. You will for example still need to master some basic coding.
The goal is to eliminate that with this tool.

Over 97 Reported issues on Github have been settled since RC 3, as always there have been a ton of adjustments and various additional improvements applied.
But as you can see, the amount of issues are declining for each RC and this is the first one we release with a blank page of issues.
Yes, you read it right, there are virtually no known issues in this writing moment.

We have noticed a larger public on PHP-Fusion 9 platform and that is a good sign, with the RC 4 we hope to increase the user pool for PHP-Fusion 9.
