Roadmap to phpMyAdmin 4.0

2012-02-10

During the recent team meeting (February 5, 2012), we discussed about the long term development effort for the phpMyAdmin project. Here are the conclusions.

Removal of frames

Frames won't be used anymore (they separated the navigation panel from the main panel). Instead, a single page will be presented, with various parts dynamically reloaded with AJAX. This will require JavaScript to be enabled in the browser.

Code base refactoring

The code base will be cleaned up using refactoring. The goal is to
remove the mix of HTML and PHP and produce code easier to maintain. Some parts will move to OOP, but we decided against switching to a framework.

New features

We currently do not plan any major new functionality for this version.

Browser requirement

Looking back, version number was bumped to 3.0 when new system
requirements (PHP 5.2, MySQL 5.0) were introduced. Therefore, version number will go to 4.0 to accentuate the new browser requirement of having JavaScript active.

The team

phpMyAdmin has switched to github

2012-02-08

The phpMyAdmin project has moved all its git repositories over to
github. This allows people to contribute easier; it also brings speed
improvements to developers.

If you were using git to get the latest sources of phpMyAdmin, you
should change the remote from where you pull to github, for example:

git remote set-url origin git://github.com/phpmyadmin/phpmyadmin.git
