This is a major new release. We recommend that all our users update.

Release highlights

Kickstart CLI Mode. You can now call kickstart.php from the command line to extract backup archives anywhere. Please note that restoring the site still requires visiting the installation URL manually.

Bust opcode caches before including feature and configuration files.. Fixes issues with Zend OPcache, APC, XCache etc. Do note that if you replace kickstart.php with a new version you still need to manually reset the opcode cache to let Kickstart run correctly (that's how opcode caches are supposed to work).

PHP 5.3.04+ is required

Akeeba Kickstart requires PHP 5.3.04+, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6 or 7.0. It won't run on hosts running PHP 5.3.03 (usually written as 5.3.3) or earlier, including PHP 5.2, 5.1, 5.0 and all 4.x versions.
