Feng Office 2.0.0 released to the general public

By 22 March, 201218 Comments

It is with great pleasure that Feng Office announces the release of Feng Office 2.0.0 to the general public.

This release means a lot of things. We will try to quickly cover each aspect of Feng Office 2.0.0 in this post.

1. More benefits for all the users

There are several new features already shipped with Feng 2.0.0, and many, many more coming in future releases.

Since the main benefit of the new version is a better foundation, upcoming features already planned will come out faster, and more robust.

While most of the new features have already been described in previous posts, we will publish further details of new features already shipped in a follow-up post. Plus, you should expect many new features and modules very soon. So please, stay tuned.

2. Ability to upgrade, for all

One of the biggest challenges of doing a new release was to provide a migration script to transform all 1.7.5 installations data into the new 2.0 architecture.

Successfully developing this script took a lot of effort in design, development, and testing.

Now everyone will be able to update their installations. We will start sending e-mail messages to each client to start planning together the best upgrading plan for each one of you.

3. More benefits for System Administrators and CTOs

System Administrators and CTOs in charge of setting up and maintaining the information architecture of their organizations and projects will have a much more powerful platform to work with.

More developer tools and the extension of the Workspaces concept into the most advanced ‘Multiple-Dimensions’ will enable your potential to organize all your company information into a single, integrated central platform.

4. More benefits for developers

Better architecture, a new plug-in and API system, and the extension of the Workspaces concept into the most advanced ‘Multiple-Dimensions’ will unleash the potential of developers to extend the functionality of Feng Office to meet the needs of all kinds of organizations.

We will be releasing more information about the API and new plug-in system soon on a separate blog post.


For the team, this release is the culmination of a great effort. It brings both immense satisfaction and gratefulness.

We could not have achieved this very important milestone if it wasn’t for the support and understanding of all our clients and users who accompanied us through all this transition year.

We want to thank everyone who helped us test Feng Office 2.0 during our beta releases, and provided us with great feedback on improvements and bugs.

And last, but not least, we want to thank everyone who supported the team, the project and the company in any way, from cheerful words to great ideas and contracting our services.

To every one of you: THANK YOU!


  • Axel says:

    Thank you for this great release!
    I would love to see the new plugin system documented in the wiki. This would be the primary requirement for people who want to contribute additional stuff which can properly be incorporated into the system.

  • Conrado says:

    You are right, Axel. We will do that soon!

  • CrAzR says:

    Upgrade was smooth. all data there. FO2 looks great.
    You might want to add to the readme.txt, when upgrading you have to change the table prefix in config.php from og_ to fo_

  • Conrado says:

    Nice! Thank you for your feedback and kind words. Regarding the table prefix issue and thoughtful tip, I have already forwarded it to the dev team to work on improving that.

  • H says:

    What is the procedure to upgrade to FengOffice 2.0.0 from FengOffice 2.0 RC?

  • Francisco says:

    In order to upgrade Feng Office 2.0 from Feng Office 2.0 RC, you should only need to copy and replace the new files for the new ones as no new SQL statement should be run. However, ALWAYS remember to backup all of your data in case of anything going wrong.
    Please also have a look here for further information:
    Concerning upgrading from Feng Office 1.7.X to Feng Office 2.0 Final, there is more information in the readme.txt file.

  • H says:

    Upgrade done! Thanks

  • zigojacko says:

    The upgrade from 1.7.5 to doesn’t work, it fails with a reference to an og_plugins database table (which has never existed). Our version of 1.7.5 was completely clean, unmodified and not using 3rd party plugins at all.
    Yet to see someone post about a successful upgrade from 1.7.5 to 2.
    Have emailed and posted full details in support forum.
    Awaiting any assistance with a fix as current process completely takes down your FO and only requires a roll back to 1.7.5 so be cautious of this anyone looking to upgrade.

  • Amar says:

    Ist easy for a person who have a very small experiences in database and mysql and other IT things to update from 1.7.4 to 2.0 can you please advice?!

  • weilies says:

    GREAT! I jz knew that v2.0 took out my lovely feature
    – Calendar view
    – Custom Report

  • weilies says:

    Ops… sorry my mistake. they are enabled 🙂
    Well, it’s cooler now!

  • Conrado says:

    It depends on the level of expertise. Remember you can always subscribe to Feng Sky, with all the features, Feng Office Official Tech Support, we can upgrade your installation at no cost, and no need to set up and administer your own Data Center and Servers.
    Sign up for a free trial account and check it out!
    If you just want to install the Community Edition and do not want to use official support, you should follow instructions on the wiki and the forum. This post will probably come handy:
    Did I spot some irony in your first comment, or am I just too sensitive today. 😛
    I am glad you are cooler now. 😉
    Our commitment is to keep all features of the old 1.7.X series, and keep improving the Community Edition along the Professional Edition. There are still some minor glitches, but Feng Office 2.0 is already quite stable.

  • JS says:

    Are you aware that Softaculous is pushing out an “automated” update script as though it were debugged and functional? The update Softaculous is currently pushing out trashed my site and data.

  • Conrado says:

    Hello JS.
    Thanks for the notice.
    Yes, we are aware that Softaculous is distributing Feng Office Community Edition as ‘a script’, as part of their package.
    Softaculous is currently not affiliated in any way with Feng Office, and their activities today are not helping us in any way.

  • Pitr says:

    Hi guys,
    Well done!
    When do you expect to push additional releases?
    Your blog has not been updated for a while and the only version available is 2.0.0.
    Keep going as your tool is just great!

  • Conrado says:

    Hi Pitr.
    Regarding the next release, it will happen so soon you will think it was your message that did it. 😛
    Thanks for the kind words!

  • Robert says:

    I still do not see how to add quick tags in version 2.1 like we did in 1.7. AM I missing something?

  • Conrado says:

    Hi Robert. We will look into that. Make sure to report any and all issues to the Issue tracking system, or to your account executive if you have a service subscription.
