A new phpList version is available, introducing several improvements and fixes. The reason why this took a little longer than the usual amount of time between new releases is because with Pull Request #763 a new release process is introduced. With the new release flow more tasks are automated making the process of releasing phpList a little smoother.
v3.6.3 includes security fixes as well, and it is advised to upgrade if you are running an older version.
Changes to look for in this release
- Don’t add an entry about being removed from lists to the user history. In order to avoid cluttering the user history, no entry about being removed from lists to the user history when unsubscribing will be added. Have a look at PR #756 submitted by Duncan.
- Identify the subscriber for a bounce. Have a look at PR #757 submitted by Duncan.
- Avoid displaying “unknown” for the subscriber and campaign on the bounces page. This change is to show the bounce status and comment instead, such as for a duplicate bounce, and display “unknown” only for an unprocessed bounce. Have a look at PR #755 submitted by Duncan.
- Include new lists in the user history report when importing. Have a look at PR #754 submitted by Duncan.
- Add the option to configure proxy settings for outgoing traffic. Have a look at PR #710.
- Manage plugins more efficiently: Updating and deleting. Have a look at PR #758 submitted by Duncan.
- Update HTTP_Request2 to version 2.4.2 for compatibility with PHP 8. Have a look at PR #760 submitted by Duncan.
- Update PHPMailer to version 6.4.1. Have a look at PR #761 submitted by Duncan.
The latest translations that were made on Weblate are now included! Also, more strings have been added in English and you can start translating them! Have a look at PR #764 for the full list of changes.
