CakePHP 2.7.8 Released

The CakePHP core team is happy to announce the immediate availability of CakePHP 2.7.8. This is a maintenance release for the 2.7 branch that fixes several community reported issues.


You can expect the following changes in 2.7.8. See the changelog for every commit.

  • An extract() call was removed from Validation::comparison(). There was some concern that it could be used to circumvent validation.
  • Fixed issue around incorrect SNI validation when host name contains protocol for SmtpTransport.
  • Proxy Authentication with SSL no longer forwards proxy credentials in HttpSocket.
  • SchemaSchell clears the ClassRegistry after applying schema.
  • Context is reset when parsing MO files. Previously context could bleed between message identifiers.

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