CakePHP 3.6.0-beta1 Released

The CakePHP core team is happy to announce the immediate availability of CakePHP 3.6.0-beta1. This is the first beta release for 3.6.0, and it contains several new major features.

Updating to the beta

You can use composer to upgrade to the beta version of CakePHP 3.6.0:

php composer.phar require --update-with-dependencies "cakephp/cakephp:3.6.0-beta1"

We would greatly appreciate it if you temporarily upgraded your application, and ran your tests. By opening issues for any regressions in the beta, we can help ensure a smoother release of 3.6.0 before the stable release.

What’s new in 3.6.0?

The migration guide has a complete list of what’s new in 3.6.0, and what has been deprecated. We recommend you give that page a read when upgrading.
