phpList 3.3.3 Release Candidate ready for testing

A Release Candidate for the upcoming phpList 3.3.3 is now available for testing.

This release includes 38 improvements. Several of these make it easier to comply with the upcoming GDPR data protection rules, including:

  • Invite plugin included by default (not enabled).
    To make the invite plugin easier to use a default campaign is also included as a draft in all new installations.

  • Facility for exporting all an individual subscriber’s data including history.
    An ‘Export’ button is added to the Subscribers Profile, which downloads a spreadsheet containing all data relating to a particular subscriber, including contents of the phplist_user_user table, the lists the subscriber is a member of, their subscription history and campaign view/click statistics.

  • Two options for deleting blacklisted subscribers added on ‘Subscribers’ → ‘Reconcile Subscribers’:

    Delete all blacklisted subscribers button
    Delete subscribers who are blacklisted because they unsubscribed

  • Contact details for the account server administrator is now linked to public pages (in an obfuscated way not visible to bots and scrapers).
    This to make it easier for subscribers to contact the Data Controller responsible for their data.

  • Preferences link added to /lists homepage

  • A ‘Preferences Page’ button is added to the ‘Subscriber Profile’ page.

  • An optional required check box for consent to a terms of service/privacy policy is added as a default attribute.

  • Default confirmation email text is changed to include how subscriber data will be used.

Check the roadmap for the full list of changes.

@Suela You might want to post this announcement to the developers mailing list as well

That has a slightly different audience who might not be regularly looking at this forum.

Updated - Ignore me, I noticed that Sam posted to the mailing list last night.

@duncanc Thanks for the nudge; the last RC (for phpList 3.3.2) was not announced to that mailing list, but we resumed the practice this time around.
