Developer Notes for Blesta 5.5

  1. Added a new event for Email Verification.
  2. Added a Doc Comments file in ~/lib/doc_comments.php for IDE support.
  3. Modules may now insert their own content in the client service management overview page.
  4. Blesta ships with a Source Guardian hotfix for PHP 8 support. We recommend updating your extensions to work with PHP 8.

Preparing for PHP 8

Reminder: We stopped using Html::ifset() and Html::_() for PHP 8 and recommend that you do the same. We have a hotfix for PHP 8.0 support that requires SourceGuardian. This hotfix now ships with Blesta, including in beta releases.

Domain Registrar Modules

Reminder: Registrar modules should define their type in config.json as: "type": "registrar",

Hotfix Notice

Hotfix Notice

Blesta no longer supports versions older than PHP 7.2, so there is no longer a need to ship hotfixes for those versions. A hotfix is included for PHP 8 which requires Source Guardian. As of version 5.5 we do not yet recommend PHP 8 for production use.
