phpList 3.6.13 has been released

phpList 3.6.13 is now available for download, including improvements, new features & translations.

You can update your phpList installation using the Automatic Updater, or you can download it directly from Sourceforge .

:open_book: For the full list of changes, have a look at the Release Notes .

In this release, a new plugin called the Updater plugin has been introduced. This change allows linking to the Updater plugin when displaying a message about a new release of phpList being available, instead of linking to the current automatic updater.

Changes to look for

  1. Allow a plugin to update phpList. Identify whether a plugin is able to update the phpList code, and link to that plugins’s update page when a new release is available. See Pull Request #946.
  2. On Pull Request #926, we used the <wbr> element immediately after a character where we want to allow wrapping. Copying/pasting an email address includes only the characters of the email address, not the <wbr> element. Specifically:
  • Changes the shortenTextDisplay() function to handle only text fields
  • Adds a similar shortenEmailDisplay() function which uses the <wbr> element
  • Adds a similar shortenUrlDisplay() function which uses the <wbr> element
  • Replaces the uses of shortenTextDisplay() for email or URL fields by the new functions
  1. Make the results of the timer class use period as the decimal point to avoid failing calculations. See Pull Request #931.
  2. Set DEFAULT_MESSAGE to 8 days so that repeated campaigns don’t expire. See Pull Request #932.
  3. Allow a gap between async requests. Check out the Resources Wiki for additional documentation. See Pull Request #937.
  4. Update the Common, CKEditor, and Segment plugins. See Pull Request #951.
  5. Use the content of the body element when including a message in a template. See Pull Request #938.
  6. Pull Request #935 includes several commits that tidy-up the output of processqueue. Specifically:
  • Fix the processQueueOutput() function in several places
  • Replace $GLOBALS['I18N']->get() by s()
  • Replace a few uses of a call to sprintf() wrapping s()
  1. Minor changes to avoid warning on PHP 8.2. See Pull Request #930.
  2. Remove unused files. See Pull Request #936.
