phpMyAdmin 4.0.10.6, 4.1.14.7 and 4.2.12 are released

Welcome to phpMyAdmin 4.0.10.6, 4.1.14.7 and 4.2.12, which contain security fixes. Version 4.2.12 also contains normal bug fixes.

phpMyAdmin 4.3.0-beta1 is released

Welcome to phpMyAdmin 4.3. This release contains many bug fixes and several
new features including the work done by our Google Summer of Code (GSoC)
students, and is the first release since the hiring of a full-time
developer. Read on for more information or skip directly to the
download at https://sourceforge.net/projects/phpmyadmin/files or always read
the complete list of changes by referring to the changelog.php or ChangeLog
files, included with this release.

First, some information on our featured GSoC projects:

Smita Kumari worked on two structure tools,
1) “a feature that enables a user to maintain a central list of columns per data
base to avoid similar name for the same data element and bring consistency of data
type for the same data element.”

2) Automated normalization is known as “Improve table structure” within phpMyAdm
in. It helps to bring the table structure upto Third Normal Form. A wizard is
presented to user which asks questions about the elements during the various
steps for normalization and a new structure is proposed accordingly to bring the
table optionally into the First/Second/Third Normal form.

Edward Cheng implemented a component which provides easy access to a console,
including bookmarking and a history viewer.

Chirayu Chiripal and Ashutosh Dhundhara both worked on many feature improvements.
These improvements may not be glamorous but feature some much needed maintenance
and minor improvements.

Behind the scenes, Dhananjay Nakrani has improved the error reporting server,
an optional reporting feature allowing users to automatically submit error
reports directly to the phpMyAdmin developers. Now, PHP errors can also be reported.

Additional behind the scenes work was done by Bimal Yashodha to refactor the code
behind the Designer interface. Most of these improvements are transparent to users
but help ease the maintenance required on this portion of the code.

Our second piece of exciting news is that this release includes many improvements
thanks to our new full-time developer, Madhura Jayaratne.

“I am so excited to be working for phpMyAdmin as a contract developer and since
I started working, my focus has mainly been on stabilizing the code for the upcoming
version 4.3 release. This involved fixing a number of bugs as well as improving
performance, which was due for some time.”

The biggest improvement Madhura has brought to 4.3 is increased speed and performance
when operating with many (thousands) databases, such as in a shared hosting environment.

Some of the new features are:

  • Smart sorting for int keys

  • Confirmation message when dropping user(s)

  • Confirm dialog on accidentally leaving a page

  • Allow clicking an approximate row count to get a correct one

  • Support for editing binary fields in hexadecimal

  • MariaDB 10+ multi-master replication support

  • Allow saving query charts as images

  • Use aliases in SQL export for tables and columns

  • Export with table/column name changes

  • Dynamic process list

  • Drag and Drop SQL import

  • Preview SQL instead of executing it

  • Run SQL query: Allow rollback for InnoDB tables

  • Zeroconf PMA tables support

  • Regexp replace

  • Avoid session timeout when user is active

  • MySQL 5.7.5 compatibility

  • Avoid session timeout when user is active

  • Multiple-column foreign key relation

  • Charts for data in <x-axis, series,=”" value=”"> format

  • Range Search Capability

  • Improvements for the table editor (index creation)

  • PHP OpenSSL support for cookie encryption/decryption

International PHP Conference Spring 2015

The International PHP Conference is a globally recognized event for PHP developers, webworkers, IT managers and everyone interested in web technology.

Once again, the conference will explore key topics and core technologies for developers and decision makers. We will show you how to scale your applications, explain the details of Continuous Integration or evaluate different approaches to NoSQL. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet with speakers, core developers and consultants, and there are often opportunities to evaluate your code. Community and enterprise projects profit from our international reputation and impulses given from the developer community.

phpMyAdmin 4.2.11 is released

Welcome to phpMyAdmin 4.2.11, a bugfix version.

PHP Unconference Europe 2015

The 4th PHPucEU is taking place on May 9th and 10th on the wonderful island of Majorca, Spain.

For the 3rd PHP Unconference Europe in 2014 about 100 attendees came to
Spain and joined a bunch of different sessions. Our mission is to bring
together an international group with knowledge of PHP. In order to address
as wide an audience as possible, the language of all sessions, presentations
and round table discussions will be English.

One of the key aspects of an unconference, besides the sessions themselves,
is the motivation for further discussions about topics while a coffee break
(or depending on the time of the day, a beer). We are looking forward to
organize an inspiring, comprehensive and successful weekend, talking about
PHP and related Open Source and web technologies on the sunny island
of Majorca again.

Start your summer with a short trip to Majorca, enjoy good coffee and shiny
weather while discussing PHP related topics with international attendees.
