As ever, you can try it out in complete safety on the demo site kindly hosted by Pete Cooper. It’s rebuilt every few hours using the new Textpattern 4.7.0 auto-installer.

We encourage you to download this beta and help us test this release to make Textpattern the best we can. Thank you in advance for helping and raising any issues on GitHub.

System requirements

Please note that Textpattern 4.7 now requires PHP 5.4 or newer. PHP 7 is highly recommended.

What’s new?

Please see the previous release notes and HISTORY.txt for full details of what’s coming in 4.7.0. Changes in this beta compared to the previous one:

Beta notes

Make sure that if you use this beta release, you also update to the final 4.7.0 version when it is released. If you have updated from a previous beta please remember to also go to the Languages panel and update any installed languages if available.

Do not use this beta release on a production site unless you have a working backup of both the site’s files and its database and know how to use it.

Please report any issues here, stating the beta version that you are using. Further beta releases may be required prior to 4.7.0 stable release, depending on issues reported.

Above all, enjoy!
