Yii 1.1.14 Release Candidate (Rc) Is Available

We are very pleased to announce the release candidate of Yii Framework version 1.1.14. You can download it from GitHub at:

In this release, we fixed more than 80 bugs and introduced more than 60 minor enhancements and features. We added CPasswordHelper that provides secure and up to date way to store and verify password hashes; We added CRedisCache to support using Redis for caching purpose; and Yii can now be installed as a Composer package.

More details about this release can be found at: http://www.yiiframework.com/news/72/yii-1-1-14-release-candidate-is-available/

We have received significant contributions to this release from our community users (e.g. creocoder, tom–, paystey, Ragazzo, antoncpu, Yiivgeny) to this release. We hereby thank their effort in making this release available.

Since this is a release candidate (RC), please do not use it for production. We will make a stable release of 1.1.14 in the next few weeks. Before that happens, please help us test this RC and report to us any issues you find. Thank you.

Good work! It’s always great when we have another new release with a bunch of new features and fixes!

When should translators start working? When should we expect the final 1.1.14?

Translation work can already be started. We will release 1.1.14 in one week or a few. We will take this time to make sure 1.1.14 is really stable enough.

Thanks, I’ve already created a pull request for Greek.

Thanks for the great news. i am going to test this RC release.

But even though i am desperately waiting for Yii 2.0 :)


Installing Yii as a Composer package:

[color="#222222"][font="Arial, sans-serif"][size="2"]Yii is now can be installed using Composer by adding the following to composer.json.[/size][/font][/color]

"yiisoft/yii": "dev-master"

I’d recommend to use

"yiisoft/yii": "1.1.*" or "yiisoft/yii": "1.1.14"

since you usually don’t want dev packages for Yii 1.

Really good news!It is pleasure to work with framework which is updating with new requirements.I like new changes in new version.

Great, great, great !!!

We love Redis !!!!

Just a tip request.

In class reference , the config is :







I’m tried with this single line:

Yii::app()->redis->executeCommand("INCR", array("YiiAppPageVisits"));  

But I got " Property "CRedisCache"."servers" is not defined " in yii/framework/YiiBase.php(220)

Can you update the guide and tell me ho to write correct config ?

Nice to see composer added.


There’s no “servers” property anywhere in Redis component so it’s kinda strange you’re getting the message. Can you post full stacktracke of what you’re getting?

After some days my codebase was changed, so I’m not able to reproduce the ‘same’ error.

But the problem was simply resolved renaming ‘redis’ to ‘cache’, for internal convention of Yii.
