phpList 3.3.0 released

phpList 3.3.0 has been released

This release contains security fixes – you should download and upgrade as soon as possible.

This is a landmark release, since it combines both noticeable improvements on the front-end, including a new user interface, and extensive work and re-writes on the back-end. Read the highlights in the release announcement.

Changes in this release

Over 32 significant changes are included in this release, with major improvements to usability and security. Check out the full release notes for details.

This release includes the largest interface overhaul to phpList in 5 years. The new theme is included by default, but not enabled. A new option on the Settings page lets you select your preferred theme via the web admin interface.

Hi Sam
I’ve upgraded but don’t see the new interface, it seems very much like the old one. It doesn’t look like the image in the email I received. Do you think I have done something wrong.

@Phatwozza Have you enabled the new theme? Quoted from the release notes:

A new theme presents a much improved user interface. It is included by default and can be enabled using the Theme Switcher.
New Theme Switcher allows the application theme to be set via the user interface for the first time, via the Config -> Settings page

The new theme is included, but not enabled by default.

Having upgraded two site to 3.3.0, I was about to upgrade a third only to find v3.3.0 has been withdrawn and replaced by 3.2.7 as you have ‘found issues’ with 3.3.0

What impact does this have on those who have already upgraded to 3.3.0

@newsmedia A new point release will be out soon including fixes for issues reported so far. If you can wait a day or two, doing so then upgrading to the next version is the best course of action.
