What a busy month for me, no wonder I'm getting bald. This month I worked on updating this site, C97.net, updating qEngine 9 and of course updating Cart Engine 5; all while working on a web site for my client! So, what's new for C97.net? Let's see:
There is no qEngine 8 (officially). qEngine 8 was made for internal purpose for my clients and for qEncore, so I decided to skip it entirely, and went with version 9. Weird. And what's new in version 9?
Woohoo, Cart Engine 5 without 4! Not only 4 is a bad luck in Chinese Numerology, but also, the same reason with qEngine 9. CE4 is for internal usage only. So, again I skipped 4, and went with 5. Weird? Indeed!
I don't have exact plan for future releases, but I hope for qEngine 10, I want to move to OOP. I think with OOP my script will be more structured, especially with modules.
Also, I have a plan for Kemana 3! Yes, Kemana 3. In spirit of weird versioning, I decided to skip Kemana 2, and goes with 3 instead! That's how awesome I am! Again, I don't have a release date for Kemana 3 yet, may be it's before qEngine 10 or after.
For now, if you have any questions about anything (related to my scripts, espceially licensing), feel free to contact me.

Recently, I had a client who requested a simple web-app, it only consisted of 3-4 static pages and 2 forms. And the client requested for the web-app to be integrated with his own CMS, which was not based on qEngine, which also mean I couldn't use qEngine. I could, but it would be overkill to use it, as qEngine has its own content & user managers (which would not be used!).
I started to design the web site by using PHP & HTML without my beloved qEngine. I mixed PHP with HTML in one file, bad move! When the client wanted to change something, I had to modify all files. So I needed a template engine. I needed qEngine, but I couldn't use it.
Thus, I developed a simple version of qEngine, and it helped me much. I didn't have to modify all files just to replace comma with period, and the modified qEngine is very small and didn't need a database to run.
Because of that, I felt I should release the modified qEngine, so if anyone needs a very simple CMS, he can use it. Because it was a modified qEngine, I named it 'qEngine Core' aka 'qENCORE'. Cool name, eh?
qENCORE is a very simple CMS script based on qEngine, it doesn't need any database, and very small & fast. It only 500KB in size (without jQuery & BootStrap it is only 250KB), but it already has: template engine, captcha, responsive web design, jquery, bootstrap with popup, drop down menu, etc. And no database required!
Since qENCORE is very basic, it doesn't have: user & page management, user authentication, login/register, email log, administrator panel, and other qEngine advanced features.
If you have any questions, feel free to submit it to community forum or contact me directly.
