CakePHP 3.8.7 Released

The CakePHP core team is happy to announce the immediate availability of CakePHP 3.8.7. This is a maintenance release for the 3.8 branch that fixes several community reported issues.


You can expect the following changes in 3.8.7. See the changelog for every commit.

  • Generated route names are now correct for routes using braced placeholders.
  • Email::getHeaderCharset() now uses the email charset as a fallback if the header charset is undefined.
  • IntegrationTestTrait::assertRedirectEquals() was added to make it simpler to assert redirect values without additional Router transformations.
  • Improved documenation blocks and type annotations.
  • Email attachments now encode the filenames in Content-Disposition headers if the filenames contain non-ascii values.
  • Http\Client now accepts a protocolVersion option in its constructor. This option lets you control the HTTP version used. This change makes it simpler to make HTTP2 requests.
  • Improved error message when ConsoleIntegrationTestTrait runs out of replies to interactive questions.
  • Http\Client can now send request bodies in GET requests.
  • Added PHP7.4 to our test matrix.
