CakePHP 3.9.4 Released

The CakePHP core team is happy to announce the immediate availability of CakePHP 3.9.4. This is a maintenance release for the 3.9 branch that fixes several community reported issues.


You can expect the following changes in 3.9.4. See the changelog for every commit.

  • The pj() function now supports UTF-8 data better.
  • Fixed warning about SameSite index when upgrading from earlier versions of 3.x.
  • Improved API documentation.
  • Added upper PHP version constraint of <8.0. Because 3.x has several dependencies that are not compatible with PHP8, we also cannot easily support PHP8 without breaking compatibility.
