Welcome to the first release candidate of phpMyAdmin 2.6.1. It contains some security fixes (see notes on phpmyadmin.net) and uses the mcrypt library (if present) for improved speed if using auth_type='cookie'.
If your web server is running on a port different than 80 or 443, and you have not defined $cfg['PmaAbsoluteUri'],
a small fix is needed.
In libraries/common.lib.php, line 1044
$cfg['PmaAbsoluteUri'] .= $url['port'];
$cfg['PmaAbsoluteUri'] .= ':' . $url['port'];
Patch level 3 of phpMyAdmin 2.6.0 has been released, containing security fixes and another bug fix.
"Mastering phpMyAdmin for Effective MySQL Management" has been updated and translated,
This is patch level 2 of phpMyAdmin 2.6.0, containing a security fix and a few other fixes (see ChangeLog).
Security fix: If PHP is not running in safe mode, a problem in the MIME-based transformation system (with an "external" transformation) allows to execute any command with the privileges of the web server's user.
This is patch level 1 of phpMyAdmin 2.6.0.
It fixes a problem which prevents using 2.6.0 under PHP 4.1.x and 4.2.x.
there is an incompatibility with phpMyAdmin 2.6.0 running on PHP versions 4.1.x and 4.2.x. The one-line fix has been applied to the CVS version. Further information will follow about correcting this problem.
