Hi everyone,

A Release Candidate for the upcoming phpList 3.5.9 is now available for testing.

Changes to look for

Feature enhancements

  • Avoid SQL error when importing a file with the wrong field delimiter. phpList will be able to detect if the file you are about to import is using any other delimiter other than tab (default) and use that instead. Thanks to @duncanc for the implementation. Have a look at the Pull Request.
  • Make message preview configurable. You can choose to switch message preview on and off. See Pull Request.

Functionality Enhancements

  • Move Updater to the system menu. See Pull Request. Due to this change, you will notice that the notification string does not display the proper version number. This is expected to be fixed with the final release of version 3.5.9 in the upcoming days.

Guidelines

Upgrading

Upgrade from releases older than phpList 3.3.7-RC1 following the usual upgrade process. You can get a copy of the RC version on SourceForge as well.

Use the Automatic Updater if you are running phpList 3.3.7 or later.

Use your phpList as normal, and report any new problems that you find.

Activating the REST API

If you haven’t checked the REST API yet, you can see the dedicated chapter in the manual to help you get started with it: API and Integrations.

Reporting issues

Report any issues you find with phpList3 to the phpList Bugtracker, selecting “3.5.9-RC1” as the Product Version.

Use the usual bug fixing process if you know how to fix it.

Report any issues you find with phpList 4 core or REST API to the corresponding repo on GitHub.

Please read the contribution guide on how to contribute and how to run the unit tests and style checks locally.

Happy testing!
