3.5.0 Release Candidate Ready for testing

A Release Candidate for upcoming phpList 3.5.0 is now available for testing.

This is a minor release with a few fixes and usability improvements.

Changes to look for

  • Simplify the use of the phpmailer addCustomHeader() method, remove redundant methods and unused parameters in phplistmailer – thanks to @duncanc , see the pull request
  • Include the seconds value on the Date header for it to be used on the bounces table – thanks to @duncanc, see the pull request
  • Remove “–select one” from the select options of “Choose a template” in the format tab
  • Add button styling on the " Add some more emails" option available after import on both import via .txt and import via CSV pages.
  • Change the .cke width property to “Auto” instead of “100%” so that the drop-down options from the toolbar are not expanded in full width – originally reported by @alex01 here and addressed by @duncanc on changes to the CKEditor plugin.
  • Updates to the front-end strings for the French Language – thanks to Alain Rihs
    If you have experienced issues with previous installations please install this update and see if those issues are resolved.
