Help us test the Textpattern CMS 4.2.0 Release Candidate

The first release candidate of Textpattern CMS 4.2.0 is ready for testing. Please grab yourself a copy, try to find the last remaining bugs or errors and help us build a high-quality final release.

What’s new?

The list of changes since Textpattern 4.0.8 includes, among others:

  • Admin-side themes
  • Timezone support with automatic DST adjustment on capable servers
  • PHP 5.3 compatibility
  • Role-based permission checks for images, links and files
  • Core support for unlimited custom fields
  • Multi-site capabilities

Refer to the HISTORY.txt file for a comprehensive list of changes in 4.2.0.


Post your feedback in this forum thread.


On an upgraded site, upon your very first login to the admin-side Textpattern CMS 4.2.0 displays a message stating

Warning: Unknown column 'user_name' in 'where clause' select name, val from txp_prefs
Notice: Undefined variable: language in /[webroot]/textpattern/index.php on line 65

This is expected behaviour and will occur only once.

The download advertises itself as 4.0.8 in diagnostics, because we haven’t yet bumped the version number.

Make sure that if you use this release candidate, you also update to the final 4.2.0 version when it is released.
