On August 5, 2015, Yii 2.0.6 was released. You can check out the official release announcement here.
This release has over 70 minor new features and bug fixes, including:
- better migrations syntax
- improvements in error handling
- nested Yii::t() calls
- extra session fields
I’ve looked over the changes and I don’t see anything that would conflict with the code in Yii 2 For Beginners.
Initially, when I tried to upgrade to Yii 2.0.6, I had problems and got an error:
[UnexpectedValueException] Could not parse version constraint <=2.*: Invalid version string "2.*"
So I put in a request to the friendly forum and got the response I needed:
to fix this, do
composer global update #this will update the fxp which causes your constraint issue composer update
Once I did that, everything updated perfectly. I have not found any problems with my template using this update, so I think we’re all good. If anyone does notice something that fails due to version change, please let me know.
As always I appreciate the positive reviews, comments, and links. Thanks!
