Upgrading from 4.3.6 to 4.3.7

Please refer to the upgrade instructions corresponding to your installation method.

Breaking Changes

Feature Testing Request Body

If you call:

  1. withBody()

  2. and withBodyFormat()

  3. and pass the $params to call() (or shorthand methods)

the priority for a Request body has been changed. In the unlikely event that you have test code affected by this change, modify it.

For example, now the $params is used to build the request body, and the $body is not used:

$this->withBody($body)->withBodyFormat('json')->call('post', $params)

Previously, the $body was used for the request body.

Return value of Validation::loadRuleGroup()

The return value of Validation::loadRuleGroup() has been changed from “rules array” to “array of rules array and customErrors array” ([rules, customErrors]).

If you use the method, update the code like the following:

$rules = $this->validation->loadRuleGroup($rules);
[$rules, $customErrors] = $this->validation->loadRuleGroup($rules);

Project Files

Some files in the project space (root, app, public, writable) received updates. Due to these files being outside of the system scope they will not be changed without your intervention.

There are some third-party CodeIgniter modules available to assist with merging changes to the project space: Explore on Packagist.

Content Changes

The following files received significant changes (including deprecations or visual adjustments) and it is recommended that you merge the updated versions with your application:


  • app/Config/Kint.php
