Serendipity Styx 4.2.0 release

N° 2023/06 - The Serendipity Styx 4.2.0 release php8.2

4.2.0 - A Maintenance Release

Serendipity Styx 4.x.x revisions will be the last update Series supporting the PHP 7.4 Series and will further on only see some maintenance or bugfix releases. The previously announced change to PHP 8 minimum requirement was stashed and we now start developing Serendipity Styx 5.0 up from PHP 8.2 as the minimum. Styx 4.2 has ironed out several bugs and other inconsistencies and is pretty much another good maintenance release, pushing a new 😎 Styx Logo. Read the ChangeLog.

  • Add the new Styx Logo. “Gone fishing… Phishing for inspiration…”
