Breaking news nas

Today, January 15, 2019, there was an unexpected surprise: PHP 7.2.13 was released! You can download PHP 7.2.13 for your Synology NAS directly from Package Center. What I have noticed is that, right now, it’s not possible to set it up via Web Station. But a new and updated version of Web Station also appears imminent. You can also take a look at the changelog for PHP version 7.2.13. Minor updates are also available for PHP 5.6 which has been updated to version 5.6.39 and PHP 7.0 which has been updated to version 7.0.33.

Updates are available for phpMyAdmin too which has been upgraded to version 4.8.4

What is phpMyAdmin? phpMyAdmin is a free software tool designed to manage MySQL databases.

The phpMyAdmin team announces the release of phpMyAdmin version 4.8.4. 
Among other bug fixes, this contains several important security fixes.
