n98-magerun2 v4.2.0 released

Published by Christian Münch on

During the Lucklow Magento Meetup we released a new version of n98-magerun2.

It’s a bigger release with a lot of new features.

Main New Features

  • Magento 2.4 / MySQL 8.0 Support / PHP 7.4 Compatbility
  • env.php file is now checked for missing values by sys:check command.
  • The customer:create command allow now custom required attributes.

env.php Check

sys:check command output

Thanks Slawomir Boczek for contribution.


MySQL 8 comes with enabled column statistics by default. Thanks to Callum Atwal who investigates the best way to enable the db:dump command to use the column statisticss in a backwards compatible way.

The db:dump command has now a new option --keep-column-statistics to keep existing columns statistics in the dump. If the option is not specified, we omit the column statistics.

Since MySQL 8 is very new for all Magento people we still try to extend the compatiblity of the tool. If you find any issue or have new ideas, please create a new issue at Github. We also plan to support the new dump features of the MySQL 8 Shell.


To be PHP 7.4 compatible we had to upgrade all bundled PHPUnit tests from v6 to v8. We did not upgrade everything to PHPUnti 9, because we still support PHP 7.2. If we drop PHP 7.2 in the future we will also upgrade PHPUnit to latest possible version.
