CakePHP is a web development framework, somewhat similar to Rails. It provides scaffolding tools, an ActiveRecord/DataMapper implementation, doesn't require much setup or configuration. It comes with helpers for text translations, caching, validation, authorization backends, CSRF and XSS protection, and templating. It follows the Web-"MVC" scheme, centralized route dispatching, less efficient class-by-class autoloading, etc. Thorough API documentation and a rich set of user-contributed plugins exist.
minor feature: SMTP delivery failure exceptions now include the error text received from the destination server.Improved API documentation.Table::saveMany() now correctly rollbacks a transaction when an entity other than the first fails to save because of application rules or database failure.ConsoleIntegrationTestTrait now uses mocked _out and _err objects if they have been set.ConsoleInput::read() now handles false values from fgets() and readline.CounterCacheBehavior now handles null association values better when custom finders are used.Http Response now allows usage of unassigned HTTP status codes between 100 and 599.Binary data in SQL query logs is now encoded as hexadecimal to improve readability of query logs.ADmad.Corey Taylor.Edgaras Janu?auskas.Jad Bitar.Mark Scherer.Mark Story.Victor Eduardo de Assis.nook24.
