CakePHP is a web development framework, somewhat similar to Rails. It provides scaffolding tools, an ActiveRecord/DataMapper implementation, doesn't require much setup or configuration.

It follows the Web-"MVC" scheme, centralized route dispatching, less efficient class-by-class autoloading, etc. Thorough API documentation and a rich set of user-contributed plugins e
minor feature: The CakePHP Request Response objects now implement the complete set of PSR-7 interface methods. This allows you to use one set of methods every where in your application and leverage libraries that work on PSR-7 compliant objects. Routes now support a _host option allowing you to match URLs on specific domains. Collection::chunkWithKeys() allows you to split a collection into chunks and preserve the keys for those chunks. Email messages can have their priority set. FormHelper can now read default data out of the query string making GET forms simple to build.
