We had hoped that we wouldn't need another beta round, but you need to be aware of the breaking changes,
so that the release candidate won't be a surprise. We are targetting the first release candidate for the end of August.

Thank you to the community for stepping up to help make this the best PHP framework!

Do NOT post support questions or feature requests in response to this thread - those will be deleted. Instead, use the appropriate CodeIgniter 4 subforum. We are trying to make the best of the limited resources that we have!

Thank you, and ENJOY!
