Software update: phpPgAdmin 4.2.3

It’s been a while since we wrote a Meukitem about phpPgAdmin, the PostgreSQL counterpart of phpMyAdmin. The developers released version 4.2.3 a few days ago, which justifies this Meukitem again. The program consists of a collection of PHP scripts that allow to maintain and manage a PostgreSQL database via a web interface. For example, it is possible to create, modify and delete databases and tables. The announcement and list of changes for this release are as follows:

phpPgAdmin 4.2.3 Released

The phpPgAdmin Team is happy to announce a new bugfix release for phpPgAdmin. Version 4.2.3 fixes several long standing bugs and fixes some PHP 5 compatability issues in the 4.2.x branch. All users of phpPgAdmin are encouraged to upgrade to this new version.

Deprecation Warning
Note, this may likely be the last version of phpPgAdmin released on the 4.2.x branch. We are currently planning to release phpPgAdmin 5.0 this summer, which will support PHP 5+ only, and Postgres 7.4+. Legacy users should continue to use 4.2.3.
