A Release Candidate is now available for testing. This release introduces changes to the REST API and the Automatic Updater.

REST API

This update makes the API calls accessible via shorter URLs, e.g:

Base URL: http://example.com/lists/api/v2/
Authentication: http://example.com/lists/api/v2/sessions

Please make sure to have htaccess and mod_rewrite enabled.

Automatic Updater

The Automatic Updater now handles your plugins folder more conveniently, so any plugins outside the default suite that you are using will no longer be removed (Please consider that the old version of the updater will pull this update so, this one will remove them.)

Information about paid community support and phplist.com hosting is now shown during the Automatic Update process.

Other changes to look for:

  • Added check for the config table prefix so the Updater can be used in installation that have a different table prefix from the standard one (Example: Softaculous)
  • Use the correct variable for the custom forward footer when forwarding to avoid empty footer on the recepient – thanks to @Duncanc
  • Added check for modules required by phpList and display the PHP module that is missing to avoid white page display

Full list of changes here

If you have experienced issues with previous installations please install this update and see if those issues are resolved.

Download the Release Candidate here if you are running a version older than 3.3.7-RC1.
