Changelog

Cherrycake adheres to Semantic Versioning, meaning version numbers match the <Major>.<Minor>.<Patch> syntax:

  • Major version numbers change when there are changes that are incompatible with earlier major versions. For example: A Cherrycake application using major version 0 will need to be heavily modified in order to work with version 1.

  • Minor version numbers change when there are new functionalities or improvements that are compatible with earlier minor versions. For example: A Cherrycake application using version 0.3.x will work without much changes or no changes at all when upgraded to Cherrycake version 0.4.x.

  • Path version numbers change when there are updates that solve bugs in a completely backwards compatibility fashion. For example: A Cherrycake application using version 0.3.4 will work without any changes at all when upgraded to 0.3.5.

Version 1.0.0b

A major upgrade released on 2021-05-29, mainly based around leveraging class discovery to composer, and better organizing the code into namespaces and subnamespaces. UI Components are entirely removed after being considered as an obsolete UI architecture, and re-formulating Cherrycake's scope to not impose any UI-specific architecture. See the Migration section for a guide on how to migrate your existing Cherrycake version 0.x application to version 1.x.

Changed

  • Composer-based autoloading system, a standard class and module autloading mechanism that simplifies overall structure for Cherrycake apps.

  • Core modules are now stored in /src//.php

  • Core classes are now stored in /src/.php

  • App module are now stored in /src//.php by default

  • App classes are now stored in /src/.php by default

  • Modules are now set in their own subnamespace inside the Cherrycake namespace. For example, the Actions module now resides in the \Cherrycake\Actions namespace and the Output module now resides in the \Cherrycake\Output namespace.

  • Because modules now reside in their own subnamespace, classes related to specific modules also reside now in the matching subnamespace. For example, the Action, ActionHtml, Request, RequestPathComponent and alike all now reside in the \Cherrycake\Actions namespace.

  • Class and module files must now have .php extension instead of .class.php

  • Module configuration files are now autodetected, so isConfigFile property for modules is no longer needed.

  • Janitor tasks configuration files are now autodetected, so isConfigFile property is no longer needed.

  • Global constants are declared in /constants.php.

  • Autoloading of classes is now handled via composer, so you need to add this to your composer.json file:

    "autoload": {
    "psr-4": {
    "CherrycakeApp\\": "src/"
    }
    }

Removed

UIComponents are no longer part of Cherrycake because they were based on an obsolete web design standard, in favor of modern web UI techniques.
