There's a small change that I'd like to see in 2.6.1, but I don't have
the time to implement it.
MySQL 4.1 supports adding comments on column level. Afaik, phpMyAdmin
only supports its own column comments, but not MySQL's native ones.
On top of that, I think that column comments don't fit into the relation
overview. I'd rather move the interface to the table structure editor.
This should be the preferred way to perform this operation.

after some profiling (thanks to Garvin for the hint about xdebug), I
found that using a blowfish encryption coded in php was taking about
70-80% of the execution time every time we encrypt or decrypt. And
since we have the security feature of adding the current time to
username and password cookie (which makes a stolen cookie useless after
LoginCookieValidity seconds), we encrypt and decrypt on each click!
Thanks to Michal for the suggestion of using mcrypt. It's now
used instead of blowfish.php (if available), producing dramatic speed
I will add in the doc a strong suggestion to use this library.
Meanwhile, please test :)
if in utf-8 mode, we try to use mbstring functions for work with strings, to
work correctly with multibyte chars. However we do not suggest adding
mbstring anywhere, so it leads to bug reports like 1063149 . The question
is how to warn users about this. Warning on main page if mbstring is not
found and using multibyte charset or just notice in documentation or

Since we received a message on the users list about this, I made some comparisons
between 2.6.0-pl2 and 2.5.4. I am quite surprised to see 2.5.4 being 3-4 times
quicker in routine operations like cookie login, changing db, going into Structure
page for a table, etc.
Removing all the js setTimeout does not improve the situation much.
(Those could be eventualy made conditional to the Safari browser.)
So I am hunting to find what happened.... Stay tuned (or help me :)
My goal is to restore 2.5.4 speed for 2.6.1 !
Patch level 3 of phpMyAdmin 2.6.0 has been released,
fixing some XSS vulnerabilities.

Hi All! (Kyle, I CC'ed you to draw your attention here)
While digging through our SF.Net request tracker, I spotted a rather nice
Basically it's about allowing users to hook into our editing/insertion system,
just like the Transformation system now does for displaying data.
I do think this is a very worthful addition for PHP-Developers working with PMA.
The implementation is quite straight-forward and should be implementable with
enough time (but without any serious problems) - I outlined my imaginations in
the feature tracker.
My time currently is quite limited, so if Kyle can take on the job, that would
be perfect. If he doesn't have time I still would love to see this feature
implemented, and I'd try to work on it in Januar/February, where I should have
The only thing I'm a bit afraid of is that this needs a change of our PMA DB
structure, and how to best upgrade tables. Anyways, that can be dealt with
