Today we are launching the new version of phpList, 3.3.0. This is a landmark release, since it combines both noticeable improvements on the front-end and extensive work and re-writes on the back-end.
The first thing you have to try is the brand new Trevelin theme. Go to Config > Settings and pick Trevelin from Theme for phpList. The Trevelin theme does more than bring a professional and contemporary look to phpList. It is also jump forward in usability. Leveraging the trend towards wide work areas, we have placed all the options in a menu on the left. This means that every option is easily accessible to you from one single place, under clear headers. Drop down menus do not obscure your workspace any more, and the theme uses your screen real estate better.
If you prefer the old look, you can switch back from the menu (pick Dressprow). The ability to switch between themes is also new and is a step towards making the interface more customisable and user-friendly for you. It also allows you to include more themes developed by the community and adapting phpList’s interface to your specific workflow.
Extensive work has also gone on under the hood. Apart from squashing bugs and improving performance, our developers have jacked up the security with a re-written the unique user ID code system and added more checks for user-submitted campaign data. The bottom line is that the integrity of your databases and your users data is safe with phpList.
