CakePHP 1.2 Beta Released Fresh Out of The Oven – Happy New Year

So I guess the CakePHP development staff doesn’t take any holidays. Bright and early New Years Day 2008, we’re greeted with a fresh new release of CakePHP 1.2.6331 beta. No, not pre-beta a full blown beta. Needless to say I’m excited about this.

There have been some nice changes which have gone through all through the Christmas season. Guys, I thank you for your dedication. The one major thing I’m excited about is the way that the Form Helper now processes dates and times; there’s no longer a cleanUpFields() function, everything is automatic (or should I say automagic). You’ll have modify your code since the result in $this->data is slightly different. There’s been some stuff deprecated and some stuff added.

The Model::generateList() function has also be deprecated, in favor of Model::find(‘list’). It’s not an exact duplicate of generateList() but it gets the job done. Check out the cakebaker for more essential tips for upgrading from CakePHP 1.2 pre-beta to the fresh new CakePHP 1.2 beta.

Enjoy and Happy Baking!
