First beta release of FlatPress 1.2 "Legato": Please help testing

Hi folks,

I am very (!) proud to finally announce the first beta release of the upcoming FlatPress 1.2.

We continue our lovely tradtion of naming our releases with musical terms. "Legato" means playing tones smoothly connected, and this is what the new release represents: FlatPress is smoothly evolving, 1.2 does not mark any hard cut. Instead, it brings FlatPress to PHP 7.4 (finally!) and PHP 8.0. Also, it contains some security fixes. We updated a few libraries, and the BBCode plugin knows some more tricks. Also, many bugs are fixed, thanks for reporting! And, to get FlatPress even more international, many language packs found their way into the standard distribution: French, Japanese, Brazilian Portuguese, Italian (finally!), and Spanish. Big shout out to all translators - thanks a lot!

Testing
This is a beta release. It is meant for testing, not for production use. Please report any bugs and glitches here in this forum topic. Thank you!
If everything works well, the final version of FlatPress 1.2 will be released very soon.

Installation
Download 1.2.beta1.zip and follow the easy installation steps documented on the FlatPress download page.

Update
To update from 1.1 to 1.2.beta1, please use the update package 11to12beta1.zip. The 1.1 update instructions on the FlatPress download page apply for 1.2.

Detailled Changelog
For the detailled listing of changes, please refer to the changelog on GitHub.

All the best,
Arvid

Hi! Have updated my bare installation from 1.1 to 1.2. Went smoothly.

Tried a lot of themes. Seem to work.

Good job!

Updated my dev blog using the extremely simple "upgrade/update only" package. Was a doddle, and everything seems to be working smoothly!

Being honest, after updating the PHP to use 7.4 instead of 7.3 on the server side, my 1.1 installation never had any issues, but future proofing is always a good thing.

I will of course update if I run into any issues. I look forward to updating my main blog/site in the future when the final release comes around.

On server is PHP Version 7.0.21, Flatpress 1.1 work OK
After install got 5 errors:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected end of file in /fp-plugins/jquery/plugin.jquery.php on line 25
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected end of file in /fp-plugins/lightbox2/plugin.lightbox2.php on line 46
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected end of file in /fp-plugins/accessibleantispam/plugin.accessibleantispam.php on line 139
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected end of file in /fp-plugins/adminarea/plugin.adminarea.php on line 40
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected end of file in /fp-plugins/prettyurls/plugin.prettyurls.php on line 663

When I replace this .php with Flatpress 1.1 .php is NO errors.
I think problem is with short_open_tag, but i cannot modify php.ini

At minimum, PHP 7.4 is required for Flatpress v1.2.

This is something already in 1.1 but maybe it is the right moment for a change: In a lot of themes the search box is too large and
leave the bounding box. See for example the screenshot of emerald-grass.
Hopefully an easy to fix annoynace.

And in setup is not language selection.

'descrl1' => 'Select your language.',
'descrl2' => '<a class="hint" onclick="toggleinfo();">Not in the list?</a>'
