Oxwall 1.8.2 beta lands today as we continue our journey through 2016. This is a release aimed at making the life of third party developers easier, as well as addressing some important backend issues. Most notably:
- Oxwall plugins now support changelogs that will be displayed in the admin area before the update. Now it will be easier to understand what the update has for you. If you are a third party developer, here’s how to add a changelog to your plugin update: https://docs.oxwall.org/faq:how-to-add-changelog-to-updated-plugin
- Commercial item validation mechanism is improved;
- Oxwall now requires PHP 5.5 minimum.
Complete changelog is here.
Oxwall 1.8.2 beta is available immediately for beta testers. All developers and designers are encouraged to test their items on the new release to ensure compatibility.

ATTENTION: This is a beta release which is unsuitable for applying on live websites, hence we do not provide any update tools. Please, wait for the official release – it will show up as the update button in your admin area.
The official Oxwall 1.8.2 release is scheduled for March 22.
Thanks for creating with us!
Bluehost only supports PHP 5.4 and 5.6 I am not sure why they don’t offer 5.5 Will this work with 5.6?
