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 e
minor feature: Requests made in IntergrationTestCase can now overwrite PHP_SELF. Improved API documentation and IDE typehinting. Saving entities with non-scalar primary key values now works as expected. Errors when persistence has failed now include more information on which validation rules caused the failure. The optional dependencies for cakephp/core are now more clearly communicated. ADmad. José Lorenzo Rodríguez. Mark Scherer. Mark Story. gregs. mosaxiv.
