{{color c="red" text="Please note this (and future) versions require at least PHP 7!"}}
This release has been tested with MySQL 5.7.21 and PHP 7.2.4.

Additional details in SystemRequirements.

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":

{{image url="" alt="force_password_reset" title="force_password_reset option"}}

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 the[[ | Github issues tracker]].
