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).

Making Sure Your Javascript Doesn’t Rise When Baking

One of the nice things about CakePHP is that it includes ready to use CSS compression. Granted, compressed CSS can be buggy at times, but for the most part it works just fine. I've always wondered why no one has included something like this for Javascript, since that's usually the bigger culprit when we're talking about document size. I've tried using Minify in the past. However, it took a lot to get it working right.

The CakePHP Bakery Is Out Of Yeast

Today I popped onto the CakePHP Bakery looking for the obAuth Component. To my surprise, I got a blank page. Seems like there's a database issue. Here's hoping that it's not down for too long. Update (11/20/07): Most of the stuff is back up on the bakery. The rating is still a small issue, but all the code and tutorials are up and running. Bake On!
