FlatPress 1.3 “Andante”: Release Candidate 1 published

2024-03-24_andante.jpgI am very proud to announce the first Release Candidate of FlatPress 1.3 “Andante”.

If you don’t know yet: The name “Andante” may be seen as a (not entirely serious) allusion to the FlatPress release cycle: We’re not going particularly fast, but steadily we’re going.

Most important improvement of the new version is the PHP 8.1 to 8.3 compatibility. Also, we added a few helpful plugins and fixed tons of bugs and security issues. And check out all the other improvements like the localized installer!

Please see the release information on GitHub to find the detailed change log, a download package and an update package from FlatPress 1.2:

Please help testing

If you happen to find the time, please help us with the last test before the final release. Try a fresh installation, or update a testing copy of your existing blog.
Please report any bugs and glitches on the FlatPress support forum. Thank you!
If no further bugs are reported throughout the testing phase, this version will soon be released as the final version 1.3.

This is a release candidate. Although it’s most likely what will become the final release, you may not want to use it on your productive blog yet.
If you want to help testing, please see this topic on the FlatPress support forum.


I explicitly want to thank all the coders, translators and testers who helped creating this new version. FlatPress 1.3 wouldn’t be possible without you! (Cheers, Frank and Matthias! 👋)
See the contributors list to learn about all those great people!

All the best,

    The correct date is 2024-03-23, not 2024-02-23 as seen in the front page.
