The project aims to provide some added and improved functionality in the areas of functional/selenium testing and phpMyAdmin’s error reporting server.
The project details are presented under two broad headings:
- Tasks related to Error Reporting Server
- Tasks related to Selenium testing
The list of accepted projects for Google Summer of Code (GSoC), 2017 was published yesterday. My proposal on ‘Improving phpMyAdmin’s Selenium testsuite and Error Reporting Server’ submitted to phpMyAdmin has been selected.
This is the second time that I would be participating in GSoC and my second time with phpMyAdmin. This time I would be mentored by Michal Čihař. I would soon be adding a separate blog post about the project details.
Congratulations to all those whose proposals were selected. Cheers!
Looking forward to a great summer ahead with phpMyAdmin again! 🙂
Last week saw the release of phpMyAdmin 4.6.5 (and 220.127.116.11 which included two minor fixes in 4.6.5) and security releases 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124.
The 4.6.5 release had two minor but irritating issues: one with mysqli_real_escape_string() being passed improper parameters and was reproducible when
$cfg['hide_db'] are set, other one was about user being forced to input a partition count on new table create page. The fixes have been made and are released as a part of 126.96.36.199
Majority of last week was spent on refactoring and templating of various
PMA_getHtml* functions apart from regular issue assessment.
