Hi all. I recently had an idea that I would like to implement in phpmyadmin. In the development docs it is mentioned that ideas about new features should be discussed on the list before implementing it.
I was working on MySQL (with phpmyadmin) in my last job and I faced some problems. Basically when I entered an incorrect query it led to data loss and there was no way to recover it. I searched online and there were a few people like me who also experienced similar problems. Recovery is only possible when there is data backup and only to the extent of the frequency of the backups.
Having read about binary logs in MySQL I came up with the idea to implement a solution that is able to recover the database by undoing only the offending queries. However, to implement this it would be necessary to have a web interface to view and select the statements that need to be undone. I felt that implementing it as a part of phpmyadmin would be better than implementing a standalone solution because it would gel very well with it. Also I want this project to be open source.
I don't have a lot of experience so I don't know if this is a good idea or if there is a better approach to solve this. I would very much like your suggestions on this.

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
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
* Support for IPv6 proxies
* Allow more connection parameters for the controluser connection
* Rename 'Relations' to 'Relationships' in many places as it's a more
* More documentation for export configuration options
* Remove support for Swekey authentication
* Remove support for old, unsupported versions of Microsoft Internet
* 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
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
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
As always, downloads are available at https://www.phpmyadmin.net

I am Anirud Samala, a 3rd year Computer Science undergraduate, and a

project, but I'm confused on how to start. I would really appreciate some
guidance on how to start contributing, or which issues I could start to
Since we do not intend to release 4.6.7 and plan to instead jump to 4.7.0
in two months, what should we do with QA_4_6? Should we still merge bug
fixes in to QA_4_6 just in case we need a 4.6.7, or are we prepared to
commit fully to 4.7.0?
The phpMyAdmin project is pleased to announce the release of
phpMyAdmin versions 4.6.6 (including bug and security fixes), 22.214.171.124
(security fixes), and 126.96.36.199 (security fixes). We recommend all
users update their phpMyAdmin installations.
There have been changes in the behavior since previous version:
* Changed the suggested text in the query window for delete queries to
avoid accidental data loss
* Re-introduce a page which shows the output of phpinfo()
Aside from the changes and security improvements, many bugs have been
* Parsing of SQL queries with the BINARY function
* Syntax error when adding or changing TIMESTAMP columns with default
value as NULL
* Broken "Edit" and "Export" links in the Routines tab
* Creating a new user on older MariaDB servers
* Format button in the SQL tab broken
* Fixes for PHP 7.1
* Problems with MySQL servers running with `lower_case_names=2`
* Fixes for several PHP notices/warnings being shown
Please note that, as previously announced, the 4.4 branch is no longer
supported. This security release is planned as the final 4.4 release.
See the 188.8.131.52 release notes for more information.
