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
correct term
* 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
https://docs.phpmyadmin.net/en/latest/setup.html#installing-from-git for

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
JavaScript source files; these are omited from the other packages as
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

Thanks to our sponsors for helping to make this work possible!
