Welcome to phpMyAdmin 4.7.0-beta1, the first public beta release of the upcoming version 4.7.0.

This version is available for public testing before the actual release of 4.7.0. You can see existing
issues or log new ones at https://github.com/phpmyadmin/phpmyadmin/issues.

A complete list of new features and bugs that have been fixed is available in the ChangeLog file or
changelog.php included with this release.

A few highlights:

  • Log failed authentication attempts to syslog (useful for parsing by fail2ban, for example)
  • Add filtering for the database list
  • Add table filtering to the database ‘Structure’ tab
  • Add support for exporting user settings as a config.inc.php snippet
  • Add option to delete settings from browser storage
  • Changes to the JSON import and export format to better follow the JSON specification, however this breaks
    compatibilty with older versions. See https://docs.phpmyadmin.net/en/latest/import_export.html#json
  • Support for IPv6 proxies
  • Allow more connection parameters for the controluser connection
  • Rename ‘Relations’ to ‘Relationships’ in many places as it’s a more correct term
  • More documentation for export configuration options
  • Remove support for Swekey authentication
  • Remove support for old, unsupported versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer
  • Removed $ cfg[‘ThemePath’]

Starting with this version, phpMyAdmin uses Composer to manage PHP library dependencies while under development.
Users downloading the official source distribution will not notice a difference, however users of the git repository
should refer to https://docs.phpmyadmin.net/en/latest/setup.html#installing-from-git for details.

Also beginning with this version, we’ve made some changes to the files available for download. There are now three
different packages available: all-langauges and english are the same downloads we’ve offered for some time, the former
featuring all languages for which we have a reasonable amount of translations and the latter being a smaller English-only
download. We have added a source download, which includes the unit test suite, Gettext po files, documentation source, and
JavaScript source files; these are omited from the other packages as most users have no need for them. We have also reduced
the number of compression formats available due to low utilization; for each package we have .tar.gz, .tar.xz, and .zip formats
available.

There are many more improvements; please refer to the ChangeLog for full details.

As always, downloads are available at https://www.phpmyadmin.net

Thanks to our sponsors for helping to make this work possible!
