Happy testing!

It shows on my installed PHP that a new version is available. When I use PHPList Updater, it indicates that the latest version 3.6.13 is already installed. When I select download only the 3.6.13 is available.

@Seahawk There might have been a glitch with the file that shows the latest version


That now shows 3.6.13 which is expected, as it is not meant to include release candidate versions (it used to do that but was changed a while ago).

If you want to test the release canidate then you can install it manually or use the Updater plugin, which was included in release 3.6.13, see https://resources.phplist.com/plugin/updater
