For all CakePHP developers and fans out there, CakePHP 1.2 stable is reported to be released soon!
But in order for this to happen we need your help! Here are a couple things you can help with:
Submit patches and test cases: If you know how to write test cases, please try to provide test cases and patches for opened bugs that currently have none.
Provide information on how to replicate bugs: We spend lots of time trying to replicate bugs with little information provided. If you experience any of the listed bugs and are able to replicate them, let us know how!
Report new bugs: If you know of any bugs currently not listed in trac, please open a new ticket with as much information as possible.
Help the docs team: The better the docs, the better the framework. Help by submitting content to the CakePHP Book.
This is a great opportunity for everybody out there to get actively involved in open source development and steady contributors will be considered for the core team.
The CakePHP team has been really dedicated recently and fixing tons of bugs and changes recently as can be seen from their trac timeline
No actual date has been announced, but from a developer point of view, “soon” can be quite broad and can range from 3 months to a year.
