CakePHP 2.7.4 Released

The CakePHP core team is happy to announce the immediate availability of CakePHP 2.7.4. This is a maintenance release for the 2.7 branch that fixes several reported issues.


You can expect the following changes in 2.7.4. See the changelog for every commit.

  • When saving, models will always correctly set the ‘updated’ and ‘created’ fields. Even when a ‘fieldList’ is used, and those fields are not in the fieldList.
  • SessionHelper and FlashHelper are now more compatible with messages set through either the SessionComponent or FlashComponent.
  • Bake generates fixtures with only 1 record by default now.
  • The default value of CURRENT_TIMESTAMP is now supported for MySQL datetime columns.
  • Datasources no longer fatally error if isConnected() is called after disconnect().
  • Improved API documentation.
  • Email configuration defaults are now correctly loaded even when the configuration class has not been loaded.
  • Virus is now pluralized to viruses.

As always, a huge thanks to all the community members that helped make this release happen by reporting issues and sending pull requests.
