The CakePHP core team is happy to announce the immediate availability of CakePHP 3.2.0-RC1. This release is the first release candidate for the 3.2 branch which adds several new features to the 3.x series. We would appreciate any feedback you might have on the new features before their API definitions become stable.
Minimum PHP 5.5 Required
CakePHP 3.2 requires at least PHP 5.5.10. By adopting PHP 5.5 we can provide better Date and Time libraries and remove dependencies on password compatibility libraries.
Disabling Deprecation Warnings
Upon upgrading you may encounter several deprecation warnings. These warnings are emitted by methods, options and functionality that will be removed in CakePHP 4.x, but will continue to exist throughout the lifetime of 3.x. While we recommend addressing deprecation issues as they are encountered, that is not always possible. If you’d like to defer fixing deprecation notices, you can disable them in your config/app.php:
'Error' => [ 'errorLevel' => E_ALL & ~E_DEPRECATED & ~E_USER_DEPRECATED, ]
The above error level will suppress deprecation warnings from CakePHP.
Carbon Replaced with Chronos
The Carbon library has been replaced with cakephp/chronos. This new library is a fork of Carbon with no additional dependencies. It also offer a calendar date object, and immutable versions of both date and datetime objects.
New Date Object
The Date class allows you to cleanly map DATE columns into PHP objects. Date instances will always fix their time to 00:00:00 UTC. By default the ORM creates instances of Date when mapping DATE columns now.
New Immutable Date and Time Objects
The FrozenTime, and FrozenDate classes were added. These classes offer the same API as the Time object has. The frozen classes provide immutable variants of Time and Date. By using immutable objects, you can prevent accidental mutations. Instead of in-place modifications, modifier methods return new instances:
use Cake\I18n\FrozenTime; $time = new FrozenTime('2016-01-01 12:23:32'); $newTime = $time->modify('+1 day');
In the above code $time and $newTime are different objects. The $time object retains its original value, while$newTime has the modified value. As of 3.2, the ORM can map date/datetime columns into immutable objects as well.
In order to make setting headers related to Cross Origin Requests (CORS) easier, a new CorsBuilder has been added. This class lets you define CORS related headers with a fluent interface.
Improved Validator API
The Validator object has a number of new methods that make building validators less verbose. For example adding validation rules to a username field can now look like:
$validator->email('username') ->ascii('username') ->lengthBetween('username', [4, 8]);
Shell::_stop() and Shell::error() no longer call exit(). Instead they raise Cake\\Console\\Exception\\StopException. If your shells/tasks are catching \Exception where these methods would have been called, those catch blocks will need to be updated so they don’t catch the StopException. By not calling exit() testing shells should be easier and require fewer mocks.
Helpers can now implement an initialize(array $config) hook method like other class types.
The action key for FormHelper::create() has been deprecated. You should use the url key directly.
Fatal Error Memory Limit Handling
A new configuration option Error.extraFatalErrorMemory can be set to the number of megabytes to increase the memory limit by when a fatal error is encountered. This allows breathing room to complete logging or error handling.
As we continue to improve CakePHP, certain features are deprecated as they are replaced with better solutions. Deprecated features will not be removed until 4.0:
