> Hi phpmyadmin developers,
> I just downloaded 4.5.0-beta1.  I love that you are using the ALTER USER
> command from 5.7!
> I have some specific 5.7 features to mention that you may be able to make
> use of:
> 1) The server now supports a list of disabled_storage_engines (these still
> “work” but no new tables can be created).
> It might make sense to remove them from the drop-down-list or make them
> appear greyed out.
> They also appear under “ENGINES” the same as others currently.
> 2) The STATUS > PROCESSLIST is currently using SHOW PROCESSLIST.  In MySQL
> 5.7, there will be SELECT * FROM sys.x$processlist or SELECT * FROM
> sys.x$sessions (user connections only).  This has some added context
> (transactions open,  memory usage etc) and the command itself uses fewer
> locks than SHOW PROCESSLIST.  Here is an example of output:
> https://github.com/MarkLeith/mysql-sys/blob/development/views/p_s/sessions.sql
> 3) The datatype JSON does not appear to be added yet.  5.7.8 added this
> native type with ~20 JSON manipulation functions.
> Support for JSON data type can be tracked at

Thanks and Regards,
