PHP-GTK.eu End of Life and GDPR

If you're reading the PHP-GTK.eu community site these days, you certainly noticed that not a single piece of significant content was created since 2015, and not much since 2013.

Whatever this may mean for PHP-GTK itself is another issue, but for the site itself, it means it ceased to be relevant about 5 years ago, and it's time to move on for the site members. Since the site contains non-anonymous user, it will fall under the new EU GDPR regulations entering into force on 2018-05-25, and there is no point for me to spend time on evolving the site towards compliance when no one is actually using it.

So here is the EOL announcement: the site will be shutting down on 2018-05-24 and its data will taken offline.

A static version of the articles may be published again at some point here or elsewhere, but I wouldn't hold my breath on it. So if you have even some interest in the site content, be sure to copy/paste the pages of interest before it goes dark on 2018-05-24. Or contact me if you want a copy of the files and content, or check my blog for newer content.

Thanks all for participating, it's been a pleasure while it lasted.

We're still here

Rumours of PHP-GTK's death have been greatly exaggerated! The project is very much still alive, but we're waiting for PHP 5.3 to come out, and also some work needs to be done on the Cairo extension before a new release can be made. This should be completed soon. This release will come with support for GTK+ 2.14 and 2.16, Cairo, and PHP 5.3.

The next release will also include official installers for Windows and Mac OSX, and an installer script (thank you bob) for Linux.

If you are interested in helping out with the project, there are many ways to get involved. Contributions of code and tests are always welcome. You can get in touch on our development mailing list. We're also looking at improving the PHP-GTK documentation and website, which has its own mailing list too. Alternatively, join us in #php-gtk on the Freenode IRC network.
