New CakePHP 4.4 Strawberry.

Cleaner. Faster.

Tasty as usual.

What's new in version 4.4

The migration guide has a complete list of what's new in 4.4.0. We recommend you give that page a read when upgrading. A few highlights from 4.4.0 are:

  • A new Error and Exception handling framework that is easier to extend and requires less application code to operate.
  • Controller::viewClasses() was added. This method enables controllers to take control of what content-types they can respond as.
  • The QueryExpression::case() builder now supports inferring the type from expressions passed to then() and else() that implement \Cake\Database\TypedResultInterface.
  • HttpsEnforcerMiddleware now has an hsts option that allows you to configure the Strict-Transport-Security header.
  • bin/cake routes now highlights collisions in route templates.
  • The RedisEngine now supports fast deletes with deleteAsync().

While CakePHP 4 contains a number of breaking changes we have prepared an exhaustive migration guide covering all the deprecated and removed features as well as highlighting the shiny new features.
