All the upgrade options are outlined here: Upgrading an existing installation.
- Version 6.7.x requires an
.htaccessfile with additional rewrite rules compared to version 6.6.x. If you upgrade, make sure you properly deploy the included
sample.htaccessfile. Otherwise the REST API will not work.

In addition to features of 6.7.4-stable:
Changes visible to front-office users:
- Removed built-in Flash audio player. Audio file playback is now supported by Video/Audio player plugins.
- b2evolution will now automatically change the status of all posts & comments which have a visibility status that exceeds the access permission of their main collection.
- Improvements to the Forums skin, including Responsive display and Workflow display modes.
- Cleaned up "Close my account" screen.
Widgets & Plugins:
- HTML5 MediaelementJS Plugin can now handle audio files (instead of previous Flash audio player). Also applies to podcasts.
- Universal Item List widget will now display a "read more" link even if an Excerpt is displayed (not just if a Teaser is displayed).

- Changed color code for meta comments to Cyan.
