Developer Resources:

Documentation: The OJS Technical Reference and the OJS API Reference are both available from the OJS Documentation page. While these are OJS-specific, the OCS codebase is similar enough to OJS they should be of help. There is also an [url=http://pkp.sfu.ca/ocs_documentation[/url]OCS Documentation[/url] page with some more general documentation that might also be of interest.

Git: You can access our public Git Repository here. Comprehensive Git usage instructions are available on the wiki.

Bugzilla: You can access our Bugzilla report tracker here.

Search: You can use our Google Custom Search to search across our main website, the support forum, and Bugzilla.

Questions and discussion are welcome, but if you have a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OCS Conference Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a technical support question, try the OCS Technical Support subforum.

Next OCS Release?

Postby tshore » Wed Jun 12, 2013 11:13 am

Just about to create 2 new conferences, but I first wanted to check and see if you have any plans to do a 2.4 release (or 2.3.6) anytime soon. I see on the roadmap that OCS 2.4 was due up after OJS 2.4, which was released 9 months ago.

Please advise.

Thank you.

Hi Trudy,

We haven't scheduled a specific release of OCS yet; our focus is currently on OJS 3.0, and after that we'll schedule an overhaul for OCS. Long story short, it won't be released soon. We may release an interim 2.3.x update for OCS, but that will likely not add more than the recommended patch set for OCS 2.3.5 plus minor tweaks.

Good to hear OCS is still alive. The last version (2.3.5) has already been released 2 years ago. Are there news about the next release? Will it be 2.3.6 or 2.4.0?

Thanks for keeping the user community updated.

Hi roball,

We have a maintenance release scheduled this year; see http://pkp.sfu.ca/wiki/index.php/General_Software_Milestones. This will wrap up all the recommended patches and a few minor bits and pieces. We are working on our longer-term plans for OCS but don't yet have a plan to report.

Thanks a lot for letting us know. So, according to the current plan, the next release of OCS will be 2.3.6, scheduled for June 2014.
