Well, it is not yet December 6 (the day where in Switzerland the “Samichlaus” comes to bring gifts), but today a new version of CakePHP has been released: 18.104.22.16864. It is again primarily a bug fix release, but it brings also an increase in performance due to lazy-loading of the models. This new release contains also a rewritten Configure class. Configure::version() returns the version of CakePHP, and with Configure::write(‘debug’, ‘2’) you can change the debug level for a specific method.
Happy baking :)
