CakePHP 2.7.3 Released

The CakePHP core team is happy to announce the immediate availability of CakePHP 2.7.3. This is a maintenance release for the 2.7 branch that fixes several reported issues.


You can expect the following changes in 2.7.3. See the changelog for every commit.

  • DboSource::isConnected() now emits a SELECT 1 query to ensure the connection is still active. This is helpful in long running processes like CLI tools.
  • Missing Flash templates were added. These templates were accidentally omitted from earlier 2.7 releases.
  • Model::exists() now always returns false, when a model uses useTable = false.
  • MediaView now correctly supports the documented extension option.
  • Forms secured with SecurityComponent no longer blackhole when a hidden input is followed by a visible input of the same name.

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