phpMyAdmin 4.6.0-alpha1 is released


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

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.
