New year is coming and it is time for last issue of development notes this year.
Despite being a short issue, there are gems to look for. Happy new year everyone!
We haven't released another 2.0 version this year but it is really close. I will try finishing it in the beginning of the year.
Extensions and infrastructure
- Yii guide is now available in Chinese and Japanese. I want to thank community for doing translations. You are awesome!
- ApiDoc 2.1.1
- Gii 2.0.8
- Both 2.0 Gii and Debug were made dependency-free asset-wise. That's good for installation time, compatibility and, when ported to Yii 3.0 will allow better package separation. Thanks goes to @simialbi.
- You can try Yii 3.0
- Mehdi Achour put together a good summary of Yii 3.0 in our wiki and then created Yii 3 Kitchen Sink. Both are worth checking.
- Framework-idependent Mutex library was extracted from 2.0 codebase
- Carsten started yii-dev, a set of tools to conveniently contribute to 3.0 version of the framework
I stumbled upon a good article (Equal) web application performance that I definitely can recommend reading.
Besides that one of my article drafts finally was finished so you can now read about Naming things.
