The CakePHP core team is happy to announce the immediate availability of CakePHP 2.7.8. This is a maintenance release for the 2.7 branch that fixes several community reported issues.
You can expect the following changes in 2.7.8. See the [changelog](http://cakephp.org/changelogs/2.7.8) for every commit.
* An extract() call was removed from Validation::comparison(). There was some concern that it could be used to circumvent validation. * Fixed issue around incorrect SNI validation when host name contains protocol for SmtpTransport. * Proxy Authentication with SSL no longer forwards proxy credentials in HttpSocket. * SchemaSchell clears the ClassRegistry after applying schema. * Context is reset when parsing MO files. Previously context could bleed between message identifiers.
As always, a huge thanks to all the community members that helped make this release happen by reporting issues and sending pull requests.
