CakePHP 4.4.3 Released

The CakePHP core team is happy to announce the immediate availability of CakePHP 4.4.3. This is a maintenance release for the 4.4 branch that fixes several community reported issues.


You can expect the following changes in 4.4.3. See the changelog for every commit.

  • Fixed a potential method call on null in file assertion methods.
  • Improved compatibility with PHP 8.2.
  • TableLocator::get() no longer throws an error if a table is configured with options and then mocked.
  • Updated CI configuration to use windows 2022 image.
  • Fixed a regression in Folder::create() where umask was not correctly set.
  • Cache keys used with FileEngine are now URL encoded. This aligns the characters valid in cache keys with other engines. It could cause cache misses for applications that were previously using characters outside of the alpha-numeric ranges.
  • Removed redundant class type checks.
  • Fixed ResultSet indexes being mutated by exceptions thrown within a loop while xdebug is enabled.
  • TableLocator now handles getting tables by namespaced class name better.
  • Unused properties in Database\Query were deprecated.
