Messages like 'A newer version of ...' and 'Directory config, which is used
by the setup..' should not be displayed to user because they shouldn't be
able to change/ update those things.  Only the main user/ root
should receive these.

Users would only become confused upon seeing these.

I agree with the idea that the messages might not be displayed to everyone,
but... Not that it might be only displayed to root user.
Because when phpMyAdmin is used in companies, the root user might not be
used, so nobody would be notified by these messages.

So, if it's not everybody and not only root, is there another way to define
the users to notify?



I agree with the idea as well. I think, we can have by default root user as
the admin and have a config option with value username of admin user. Also,
ideally it should allow to make multiple(comma separated list of usernames
as value) or all(may be value "all") users as admin. So here all admin
users get notification. I'm not sure this the right way, there might be
better way(may be without config change) to achieve this. Any other
suggestions ?

 I thought about something like this. Is there any privilege that might
tell us this information for a user?
