@mariana I think that for the automatic updater to recognise that there is a new release the file https://download.phplist.org/version.json needs to be updated.

Currently it is showing 3.6.2 as the latest release.

You are right Duncan.

It is updated now.

Just try to install and got the following errors:
Auto-update get stuck with:

The update has been downloaded!
Downgrade is not supported.

Manually downloaded and upgraded as per instructions and after adding the config back have a blank page.

Will have to revert back to previous installation.
