Version 4.1.5

Release Date: November 8, 2021

4.1.5 release of CodeIgniter4

BREAKING

  • Fixed a bug on CSRF protection. Now CSRF protection works on PUT/PATCH/DELETE requests when CSRF filter is applied. If you use such requests, you need to send CSRF token.
  • In the previous version, if you didn’t provide your own headers, CURLRequest would send the request-headers from the browser, due to a bug. As of this version, it does not send them.
  • Fixed BaseBuilder::insertBatch() return value for testMode. Now it returns SQL string array instead of a number of affected rows. This change was made because of maintaining compatibility between returning types for batch methods. Now the returned data type for BaseBuilder::insertBatch() is the same as the updateBatch() method.
  • Major optimizations have been made to the way data is processed in BaseBuilder::insertBatch() and BaseBuilder::updateBatch() methods. This resulted in reduced memory usage and faster query processing. As a trade-off, the result generated by the $query->getOriginalQuery() method was changed. It no longer returns the query with the binded parameters, but the actual query that was run.

  • Added Cache config for reserved characters
  • The addForeignKey() function of the Forge class can now define composite foreign keys in an array
  • The dropKey function of the Forge class can remove key

  • Reduced memory usage of insertBatch() and updateBatch()
