Note Regarding Hotfixes

Blesta now ships with bundled encoded files that support PHP 5.4 through PHP 7.3 out of the box. This means that you should not need to upload any hotfixes unless you are running a version of Ioncube loaders older than version 10.1. If you are running old Ioncube loaders, upgrade Ioncube or apply the following hotfix based on your PHP version:

  • PHP version >= 7.1.0 - use /hotfix-php71/blesta/
  • PHP version >= 5.6.0 and < 7.1.0 - use /hotfix-php7/blesta/
  • PHP version >= 5.4.0 and < 5.6.0 - use /hotfix-php54/blesta/

See the release notes for more details on this release.

When is the final release?

Version 4.7 will be officially released after the beta phase has completed, which we expect to happen soon. Once we deem 4.7 stable for production, a final release will be issued. You can help by participating in the beta!
