Here’s an overview of some notable changes and enhancements:

System requirements and compatibility

Textpattern 4.5 will require PHP 5.2 or better and will no longer run on servers with PHP 4.x. Plugins which introduce or amend functionalities on the admin-side may need a few changes in order to mould into the AJAX-driven parts of the user interface.

Try for yourself!

Fetch the current development version and set up a test site—but keep in mind that this is still work in progress and may contain bugs or even break so don’t use it on productions sites.

If you happen to stumble over a bug or want to suggest an enhancement please file an issue.

We are grateful for any feedback!
