Compilation of developer notes on changes in 1.6.
Added ACL tables (todo - list them) Removed jos_groups table
JAuthorization::getUserAccessLevels( $section [, $action = 'view'] ).
JDatabase::setQuery casts the sql variable to a string. This allows you to pass an object that implements the __toString magic method.
Both JFile::write and JFTP::write now use a reference for its second argument. Code like JFile::write($filename,'string'); will fail, however $data = 'string'; JFile::write($filename, $data); will work for both 1.5 and 1.6
JModel::getState will now take an optional second argument to set the default. $value = $model->getState( 'foo', 'bar' );
JModel has an addition contruction option and internal variable
__state_set. This is used to lazy-load model initialisation.
JTableTree as an abstract class for tree-based tables.
Made JObject abstract. It can no longer be directly instantiated. Use JStdClass instead.
Join for access level
LEFT JOIN #__groups AS g ON g.id = c.access
LEFT JOIN #__core_acl_axo_groups AS g ON g.value = a.access
Only available in legacy mode (to be dropped in future versions):
global $mainframe- Use
$app = &JFactory::getApplication()instead.
- JTemplate (patTemplate completely deprecated)
Don't forget to do this:
- Access Level links in backend lists need to be refactored to support the new levels available in the jos_core_acl_axo_groups table.
