Yii PHP framework 1.0.4 is released

We are very pleased to announce the release of Yii Framework v1.0.4! You can download this new release from the Yii download site:


In this release, we included about thirty feature enhancements and more than twenty bug fixes. We continue to improve the powerful ActiveRecord (AR) implementation in Yii. In particular, we added support for using SQL Server with AR (thanks to Christophe for his generous contribution). We also added a so-called STAT relation to facilitate aggregational queries in AR. Moreover, we enhanced AR so that it can be used for tables without primary keys and foreign keys. We added several new components, including a validator to check the existence of input data in a table, a Zend Data cache component and an eAccelerator cache component, and a cache dependency represented in terms of a PHP expression.

A list of all enhancements and issues resolved in this release can be found at:


Thank you for your support! And special thanks to those who participated in
