We are very pleased to announce extension releases.
As you might already know, we decided to decouple extension releases from the framework release
to allow more flexibility and possible more frequent extension releases.
This however has not really happened in the past as we were very busy working on the framework itself and also
each release takes some extra resources to review the code and prepare the release.
We have now automated most of the release process for extensions so we can hopefully release more often in the future and
are now happy to announce the release of the following extensions:
Yii 1.1 support was originally announced as "Dec 31, 2015 (may be extended further if needed)".
In March we've conducted a survey and since December is close, it's time to officially announce our decision.
We are very glad to announce that we have a new member joining the core team. His name is Dmitry Naumenko and his GitHub ID is SilverFire. Dmitry is from Kiev, Ukraine. Despite not being long time contributor he displayed very good sense of the framework, thorough approach to development and issue discussion and great technical skills. We believe his joining the team will help us push Yii forward. Welcome!
We are very pleased to announce the releases of Debug, Bootstrap, Sphinx and Authclient extensions. We decided to decouple extension releases from the framework release to allow more flexibility and possible more frequent extension releases. Debug was released quite long time ago but at the time we were too busy for announcement.
We are releasing Yii 2.0.5 to fix a security issue found in the yii\web\ViewAction class. We urge all users of the class to upgrade their Yii installation to this latest release. Upgrading from 2.0.4 to this release is very safe as the release does only contain the bugfix for the vulnerability and will not break your existing code.
