We’ve been building a couple exciting projects on the CakePHP framework, and have recently been using the new 1.2 branch. So, as a developer, it’s been frustrating to try and look up information only to find the provided Manual was for 1.1 only... and it was out-of-date at that.

There was always excellent documentation for both 1.1 and 1.2, mostly around the API, but there were a couple times I needed a clearer explanation of a function or implementation.

The new Manual, now located under it’s own subdomain, sports the look and feel the API and Trac pages have been using. A nice change, as it happily takes advantage of my widescreen monitor. The 1.1 branch documentation has been shuffled around a bit, so if you were used to looking something up there, this is going to take some getting used to. But other than that small detail, I appreciate the update... thanks guys!
