The CakePHP core team is happy to announce the immediate availability of CakePHP 2.9.8. This is a maintenance release for the 2.9 branch that fixes several community reported issues.
Bugfixes & New Features
You can expect the following changes in 2.9.8. See the changelog for every commit.
- Support for TLS 1.2 was added to CakeSocket. Using newer TLS versions requires PHP5.6 or greater.
- The CSRF and Security token fields now have autocomplete=off. This resolves a problem with the back button in new versions of Safari.
- ControllerTestCase::testAction() now works as expected when App.base is set.
- Validation::notEmpty() accepts -0.0 as it does on 3.x.
