I am a bit late, so I will keep this post short: a bugfix release of CakePHP has been released yesterday. Read the announcement, and/or download this latest release.
Seeing how you are now part of the dev team: Is it possible for entries about tickets to include a summary of the ticket as well? I don’t find it particularly usefull if half of the changelog reads “Fix for ticket #123”. something like “Fixed A not doing B (Ticket #123)” would be way more helpfull.
It is a good point. I cannot promise that it will be changed in the future, but I will mention it to the other devs.
