phpList 3.6.6 Release Candidate is available for download

Hello everyone,

A Release Candidate for phpList 3.6.6 is ready for testing! Your feedback is valuable for the stable release.

You can get a copy of the RC version from GitHub or SourceForge.

Changes included in this release:

New features:

  • Update jQuery version to the latest stable in order to be up to date and for security hardening. See pull requests #818, #90 and #122.

  • Specify the database engine option of your choice. A new configuration option has been added to allow the phpList administrator to specify their preferred database engine. See pull request #815.

  • Allow database initialization from the command line. As a phpList administrator, you will be able to initialize your database from both your phpList dashboard and the commandline. See pull requests #812 and #813.

  • Add analytics parameters for HTTP/ HTTPS URLs when click tracking is not enabled. When click tracking is enabled only HTTP/ HTTPS links are tracked. Analytic parameters are added when a link is clicked, therefore are added only to the HTTP not to “mailto:” for example. For more, see pull request #810.

  • Display subscriber list ID when viewing lists. A new field has been added to display the list’s ID when looking at the full set of subscribers lists. See pull request #811.
