Another release Tuesday and Yii 3 progress

Published on June 11, 2019 by Alexander Makarov

This release Tuesday has not brought many releases. Only a single Yii 2 extension was tagged, Bootstrap 4.

Meanwhile, some preparations for the next Yii 2 release were made:

  • Merged database performance fixes by Brandon Kelly from Craft. These should bring some extra performance for all database drivers. If you have a project using database heavily, please help us testing master branch.
  • Cookie and session cookie got sameSite parameter that works if you are running PHP 7.3 or higher.
  • Some extra fixes made by community were reviewed and merged.

As for Yii 3, it is able to run "Hello world" web application now but it's not yet ready for anything else and isn't yet convenient to configure. Individual component readiness varies from lots of things to be done to 100% unit-test covered and with enough documentation. Current goal in progress is to make web application part usable and convenient.
