Hello developers and student hopefuls,
Unfortunately Google has decided to not accept us to the GSoC program
this year. We are disappointed, of course, and we are proud of the many
great contributions we've received from our past GSoC contributors (not
to mention the great team members that have come through the program).
Of course we wish great success to all the students who will be
participating with other projects and hope some of you will continue
your interest in the phpyAdmin project.
The phpMyAdmin team is pleased to announce the release candidate of
Notable changes since 4.6.0-alpha1 include security fixes and fixes to
parsing of certain queries with the SQL parser library.
phpMyAdmin 4.6.0 will be a regular maintenance release including over 35
improvements. Please note that this release ends support for old
versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer, which are no longer supported
by Microsoft. There is a new configuration directive,
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['ssl_verify'] which is useful in some cases with
self-signed certificates. The ForceSSL and PmaAbsoluteUri configuration
directives have been removed (the functions of both of these should
better be handled by the webserver than the application).
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:
* Allow setting routine-wise privileges
* UI for defining partitioning in create table window
* Support JSON data type
* Editing partitions in table Structure
* Copy results to clipboard
* Reactivate cut&paste possibility in print view
* Display binary strings as text if they are valid UTF-8
* Copy multiple tables to database
* Show MySQL error messages in user language
There are many more improvements; please refer to the ChangeLog for full

Since sql-parser is now another library we include, should we add
ChangeLog entries for sql-parser issues that have been fixed in phpMyAdmin?
It seems to me this would be good, since sql-parser is closely tied to
the functionality of phpMyAdmin (as opposed to, say, tcpdf where the
user doesn't care as long as they can still press the PDF button and get
a PDF file). However, it is a bit harder to follow which version of
sql-parser is with which phpMyAdmin release, since they're not directly
linked and we pull the most recent sql-parser 3.x when creating a release.
What's the consensus with the rest of the developers here?
