CakePHP 4.1.3 Released

The CakePHP core team is happy to announce the immediate availability of CakePHP 4.1.3. This is a maintenance release for the 4.1 branch that fixes several community reported issues.


You can expect the following changes in 4.1.3. See the changelog for every commit.

  • The changes made to not reload plugin configuration was reverted as it caused regressions in community plugins.
  • XML entity loading code was de-duplicated and made compatible with PHP8.
  • The SqlServer driver now raises an exception when more than 2100 parameters are provided as that is the maximum that SQLServer supports.
  • The SqlServer driver will now retry connection creation up to 4 times on certain errors such as database paused. This increases compatibility with cloud hosted SQLServer instances.
  • View now closes all open output buffers when an element or view fails during rendering. This resolves open buffer warnings in test cases.
  • DateType now ensures that time components are wiped for PHP provided classes as well.
