XAMPP Usability Survey 2008

We are planning to redesign the demo pages for one of the next releases of XAMPP. Our demo pages are six years old by now and are screaming for an update.

To make sure that we are not just following our personal preferences, we are now looking for volunteers for our usability survey.

Thank you for taking part and special thanks to Karin Kunkel, Sonja Uhl and Constanze Weiland, who are carrying out this survey for us.

Merry X’mas with new XAMPP versions!

With new versions of XAMPP for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X we wish you all a merry christmas, snow on your server farm and a warming processor in everyones heart!😉

In all three Xmas gifts we updated MySQL to 5.0.51, PHP to 5.2.5 and phpMyAdmin to 2.11.3. But we didn’t update Perl because the new 5.10.0 seems to be a development version, and in XAMPP we only support “stable” versions.

New XAMPP versions for Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X

The autumn comes, and besides of chilliness and early gingerbread it brings also new versions of XAMPP for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.

In all versions we updated Apache to 2.2.6, PHP to 5.2.4 and phpMyAdmin to 2.11.1. (Find more details on the specific download page.) I’m sorry to say, but under Windows we currently have problems with the new Apache and mod_perl, which doesn’t work at all. We hope to find a solution soon.

Another great news: The Mac OS X version is now available as Universal Binary and runs now also on older PowerPC-based Macs.
