NEW Release LEPTON 7.0.0

This release has mainly reworked LEPTON files in /account and /backend including both BE-Themes to get rid of old code and therefore ensure future development and maintaining in upcoming PHP versions. It also contains some bugfixes and updated addons.

LEPTON requires PHP 8.x as a minimum ( PHP 8.2.x recommended) and is already tested with latest PHP 8.2.9

Please keep in mind that all addons, that are not included in the package have to be checked. Please take care of this to avoid notices and errors. Modifying headers can easily be done with search and replace in an editor.

You should read the list of deprecated functions/methods/files in the docs to check which modifications you have to do in your addons or templates.

We added new core table keepout to enable blocking of unwanted entries during signup process or forms. For details please use the docs.

We removed tool addon_info from the package. It will not be removed from current installations by upgrade script but has to be updated manually if neccessary.

We added new class to ease the use of cronjobs. For details please also use the docs.
