CakePHP 2.4.3 released

The CakePHP core team is proud to announce the immediate availability of CakePHP 2.4.3.

The CakePHP core team is proud to announce the immediate availability of CakePHP 2.4.3. 2.4.3 is a bugfix release for the 2.4 release branch. A short list of the changes you can expect is:

  • API Documentation improvements.
  • Long headers are no longer wrapped with PHP_EOL when sending email with MailTransport. This should solve delivery issues with Qmail, and other SMTP transport agents.
  • Model::_clearCache() has improved performance.
  • Model’s now work better with schema’s containing numeric column names.
  • An exception is now raised when a view block is opened while it is already open.
  • SchemaShell no longer uses schema.php as the filename when a custom name parameter is provided.
  • MKV is a supported content type.
  • CookieComponent writes are now more consistent. Previously writing multi-key and single writes were handled very differently. Fixing the write consistency makes deletion data saner and results in fewer cookies being transmitted.
  • Empty array data in cookies is now parsed correctly.
  • CakeTime::dayAsSQL() now correct supports the timezone parameter.
  • COUNT(DISTINCT x) queries work better in SQLServer now.
  • Postgres sequence values now use custom primary keys.
  • HtmlHelper now correctly encodes URLs generated for meta tags.
  • Using FormHelper::postLink() after creating a GET form now works as expected.
  • Model::saveAssociated() handles expression objects correctly now.
  • Model::setSource() does not alter the datasource’s cacheSources property anymore.
  • Non-breaking spaces are now removed by Inflector::slug()
