phpList 3.4.1 has been released

phpList 3.4.1 has been released and incorporates changes to both the REST API introduced last month, and the Automatic Updater, plus seven other improvements. See the full list of changes in the release notes.

REST API changes

This update replaces the API access URL with a shorter, more convenient one: .
Please consider that the old access URL like this has been depreciated:

Automatic Updater Changes

  • The Automatic Updater from now on will backup your additional plugin files so you will no longer have to manually restore them. Please note that updates from phpList 3.4.1. to 3.4.2 will be the first occasion when the new Automatic Updater is used (as each update uses the Automatic Updater of the previous release). Therefore automatic updates from phpList 3.4.0 to 3.4.1 will still require re-installation of plugin files.

  • If your installation uses custom database table prefixes and automatic updates were previously failing, this issue has now been resolved.

Other Changes in this release

  • Fixed blank public pages error introduced on the previous update to jQuery 3.3.1, due to stored reference to the old jQuery scripts in the footer of public page templates.

  • Use the correct variable for the custom forward footer when forwarding to avoid empty footer on the recepient – thanks to @duncanc

Please note that the check for missing php modules included on the RCs has been removed. The check for a shorter list of modules that are required will be included in the future release.
