CakePHP 4.1.0-beta1 Released

The CakePHP core team is proud to announce the first beta release of CakePHP 4.1.0. This beta introduces a handful of deprecations. It also adds window function support and common-table-expression support to the ORM. Furthermore, it features improved debug() output, and new ORM events for marshalling.

New Features

The migration guide has a complete list of what’s new in 4.1.0. We recommend you give that page a read when upgrading as it outlines the deprecations present in 4.1.

How you Can Help

You can help by trying out the beta in your application. Please open issues for any new test failures or regressions the new version creates in your application.
