CakePHP 2.9.8 Released

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.

  • Validation::notEmpty() accepts -0.0 as it does on 3.x.
