Slim 3.2

  • Support the hostOnly cookie flag
  • Write to the PHP error log if displayErrorDetails is false to make it easier to find out what’s gone wrong!
  • Support PHP 7+ errors in the same way that Exceptions are handled.

See: Slim Framework 3.2 release notes


Various frameworks had point releases. I'm not sure what changed, so I assume that these are bugfixes.

  • Laravel 5.2.13
    • fixes a bug that can cause Mail::queue to send stale view data when using daemon queue workers.
  • Symfony [3.0.3, 2.8.3, 2.7.10, 2.3.38]
  • Zend Framework
    • No updates for ZF 2.5
    • Lots of work towards ZF 3 in Q3!
