The phpMyAdmin team announces the release of 4.6.0-alpha1. Even though this release should be functional and relatively stable, it is considered an alpha release and encourage you to exercise care in deployment. Please report any issues at https://github.com/phpmyadmin/phpmyadmin/issues
Welcome to phpMyAdmin 4.6.0-alpha1, a regular maintenance release including over 35 improvements. Please note that this release ends support for old versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer, which are no longer supported by Microsoft. There is a new configuration directive, $cfg['Servers'][$i]['ssl_verify'] which is useful in some cases with self-signed certificates. The ForceSSL and PmaAbsoluteUri configuration directives have been removed (the functions of both of these should better be handled by the webserver than the application).
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.
A few highlights:
There are many more improvements; please refer to the ChangeLog for full details.
