This version now uses the more secure PHP password_hash algorithm; the MD5 hash algorithm has been deprecated as of this release and is slated for removal within the next few releases. If you have a site with few users, simply changing the password for each user will generate the more secure password hash and bypass the MD5 check. If you have a busier site, there is an option on the AdminUsers page called "Force password reset for all non-admin users":


Clicking this will force non-admin users to change their passwords (and by default transition to the more secure password hash). For safety reasons, admin users will need to manually initiate a password change before their passwords are upgraded.

We also introduce a new formatter for CSV data as well as numerous bug fixes.

Bug reports concerning this new security upgrade (as well as for other issues) are always welcome on theGithub issues tracker.
