A few highlights of changes before 4.7.0-beta1:

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 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-langauges 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.

As always, downloads are available at
