This is release candidate 3, probably your last chance to test before the final version 2.6.0. A few bugs were fixed in 2.6.0-rc2, this is why -rc3 was released today.
MySQL ComCon Europe 2004, "the best European event in 2004 for practical and powerful information about MySQL", will take place in Mrfelden-Walldorf near Frankfurt, November 8-10, 2004.
phpMyAdmin will have a booth there, where the development team will be represented by Alexander Turek and Garvin Hicking.
Here is the second release candidate for version 2.6.0. Thinks are going well, version 2.6.0-rc1 was tested a lot (with more than 45700 downloads). phpMyAdmin is a tool written in PHP intended to handle the administration of MySQL over the Web. Currently it can create and drop databases, create/drop/alter tables, delete/edit/add fields, execute any SQL statement, manage keys on fields.
After one month and 30000 downloads of 2.6.0-beta2, we are pleased to present the first release candidate for the upcoming 2.6.0 version.
This is phpMyAdmin 2.5.7, patch level 1, fixing the vulnerability dated 2004-06-29 released on BUGTRAQ. See Documentation.html, FAQ 8.2.
We would like to put emphasis on the disappointment we feel when a bugreporter does not contact the authors of a software first, before posting any exploits.
The common way to report this, is to give the developers a reasonable amount of time to respond to an exploit before it is made public.
Here is phpMyAdmin 2.6.0-beta2. A few last-minute errors found their way into beta1, so beta2 fixes those, plus a few more.
Welcome to 2.6.0-beta1! This version has reached feature freeze, and is now offered to a larger audience to get feedback.
Since 2.6.0-alpha2, an interface redesign has taken place, and phpMyAdmin now has "skins" or themes, and a theme manager.
Marc Delisle, for the team.
Two members of the development team, Alexander Turek and Michal Cihar, will be present at LinuxTag 2004, Europe's largest Linux and Open Source fair.

I want to thank Alexander and Michal for their presence there, and wish them to meet many enthusiastic phpMyAdmin users! See http://www.lamparea.org and http://www.linuxtag.org
