Welcome to phpMyAdmin 4.7.0-beta1, the first public beta release of the upcoming version 4.7.0.
This version is available for public testing before the actual release of 4.7.0. You can see existing issues or log new ones at https://github.com/phpmyadmin/phpmyadmin/issues.
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:
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:
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
the number of compression formats available due to low utilization; for each package we have .tar.gz, .tar.xz, and .zip formats
There are many more improvements; please refer to the ChangeLog for full details.
As always, downloads are available at https://www.phpmyadmin.net
