CakePHP 3.3.4 Released

The CakePHP core team is happy to announce the immediate availability of CakePHP 3.3.4. This is a maintenance release for the 3.3 branch that fixes several community reported issues.


You can expect the following changes in 3.3.4. See the changelog for every commit.

  • __xn, __dx and __dxn support variadic arguments now.
  • An incompatibility in Response::body(callable) & PSR7 stack was fixed.
  • Improved API docs resolving warnings in PHPStorm and other IDEs
  • Checkbox inputs now support the escape option.
  • Translations that result in ‘’ no longer throws an exception.
  • EventManager::__debugInfo() is more accurate.
  • Fix notMatching() without query builder callback triggering an error.
  • Clean primary entity after Model.afterSaveCommit is triggered. Previously primary entity was being cleaned too early and callbacks for Model.afterSaveCommit were useless if one wanted to acccess original state.
  • The ErrorHandlerMiddleware now logs errors as ErrorHandler would.
  • Requests with an invalid HTTP protocol version no longer fatally error. Instead they return a 400 HTTP status code.
  • Redirect Routes now work as expected for applications in subdirectories using the PSR7 HTTP stack.
  • DispatchFilters now receive events when exceptions are rendered again.
  • Session regeration now works as expected with the database adapter, and PHP7+
  • Very large decimal values can now be used in database operations withouth losing precision now.

New Features

  • RouteBuilder::nameExists() was added. This method allows you to check the existence of named routes.
  • Collection:cartesianProduct() was added.
  • View::element() now supports plugin = false as an option to disable automatic plugin element rendering.
  • imageSize, imageHeight and imageWidth methods were added to Validation. These methods let you validate uploaded image file sizes without requiring additional extensions.
  • Improved API docs.
