phpMyAdmin 4.0.10.20 is released

2017-03-29

Welcome to phpMyAdmin 4.0.10.20, a release containing a security fix and a bug fix.

The security fix relates to the possible bypass of $cfg['Servers'][$i]['AllowNoPassword'], see PMASA-2017-08. The bug fix relates to searching a database when the locale is not set 'en'.

As long as no users are configured with no password or the server is not relying on $cfg['Servers'][$i]['AllowNoPassword'] for security protection, this update is not a required upgrade. For more information, you can refer to the ChangeLog file included with this release and the security announcements at https://www.phpmyadmin.net/security/

phpMyAdmin 4.7.0 is released

2017-03-29

Welcome to phpMyAdmin 4.7.0, a regular maintenance release containing new features, bug fixes, and a security fix.

A complete list of new features and bugs that have been fixed is available in the ChangeLog file or changelog.php included with this release.

Notable changes since 4.6.6:

  • Fix an issue where $cfg['Servers'][$i]['AllowNoPassword'] is ignored (PMASA-2017-8)
  • Fix JavaScript errors when using Designer
  • Show all databases in dropdown selector, including the current one
  • Better defaults when creating a multi-field foreign key
  • Improved support for TokuDB
  • Improved handling of LoginCookieValidity, this should improve certain cases where users were getting logged out prematurely
  • Fix an error that could occur when copying a database (related to pmadb/Configuration Storage metadata)
  • Fixed OpenDocument exports
  • Fixed alignment of NULL values
  • Removed error message about client and server version mismatch
  • Compatibility fixes when running under HHVM 3.18
  • Fix the version check when curl is incorrectly configured
  • Change the default export setting for Excel files; now the default is to include column names in the first row. This is always configurable with $cfg['Export']['excel_columns']
  • Log failed authentication attempts to syslog (useful for parsing by fail2ban, for example)
  • Add filtering for the database list
  • Add table filtering to the database 'Structure' tab
  • Add support for exporting user settings as a config.inc.php snippet
  • Add option to delete settings from browser storage
  • Changes to the JSON import and export format to better follow the JSON specification, however this breaks compatibility with older versions. See https://docs.phpmyadmin.net/en/latest/import_export.html#json
  • Support for IPv6 proxies
  • Allow more connection parameters for the controluser connection
  • Rename 'Relations' to 'Relationships' in many places as it's a more correct term
  • More documentation for export configuration options
  • Remove support for Swekey authentication
  • Remove support for old, unsupported versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer
  • Removed $cfg['ThemePath']

Starting with this version, phpMyAdmin uses Composer to manage PHP library dependencies while under development. Users downloading the official source distribution will not notice a difference, however users of the git repository should refer to https://docs.phpmyadmin.net/en/latest/setup.html#installing-from-git for details.

Also beginning with this version, we've made some changes to the files available for download. There are now three different packages available: all-languages and english are the same downloads we've offered for some time, the former featuring all languages for which we have a reasonable amount of translations and the latter being a smaller English-only download. We have added a source download, which includes the unit test suite, Gettext po files, documentation source, and JavaScript source files; these are omitted from the other packages as most users have no need for them. We have also reduced the number of compression formats available due to low utilization; for each package we have .tar.gz, .tar.xz, and .zip formats available.

There are many more improvements; please refer to the ChangeLog for full details.
