Announcing Mautic 2.16.1 beta

By Ruth Cheesley · PUBLISHED March 20, 2020 · UPDATED March 20, 2020

Today we have released 2.16.1 beta which includes 49 bug-fixes.

As always, we recommend that you install this update in a development environment and test thoroughly. We also recommend that you perform this update using the command line where possible, especially on shared hosting or where there are a lot of leads to process, which can result in a timeout with the browser update.

NOTE: the regions of Oman have been updated (#7520). If you had contacts that were set to one of the following regions: Al Batinah, Al Janblyah, Ash Sharqlyah, Az Zahirah, Masqat, they'll lose their regions. Due to the nature of this change, we couldn't provide an automated migration script.
