For many years I have been discussing the modernization of the MODX core. And it is no secret that countless obstacles seem to continuously appear in my path as I attempt to make headway towards that goal. However, with the help of a dedicated team of contributors, a plan that has been formulated by a number of individuals ready to help move MODX forward, and a new official website for the community to keep track of our progress, it appears we will finally see the next major version of MODX come to fruition.
In an effort to remove the dependency on Ant, the Java-based build tool we have been using to build, test, and produce distribution packages of MODX Revolution, I spent the last week learning Phing, refactoring the xPDO and MODX Revolution build processes to use it, and writing a custom Phing Task to handle our YUICompressor requirements.
