5.0.0 (2018-04-25)

Overview of merged pull requests

TASK: Add test for empty resource upload

This shows that #542 is no longer relevant.

Resolves #542

  • Packages: Flow

FEATURE: Allow specifying a list of available Locales via settings

With this, it is possible to specify a list of available Locales via the Neos.Flow.i18n.availableLocales setting, which will then avoid triggering the scanning process.

Resolves #1232

  • Packages: Flow

BUGFIX: Render debugger-styles directly with first debug-output

The styles for rendering the debug-output are now rendered with the first output itself instead of being echoed.

The direct echo solution caused trouble whenever non html-data like json was rendered because the styles were rendered outside the json-structure and thus caused invalid json.

  • Packages: Flow

BUGFIX: Wrong type hint on replacePlaceholders

The configurationManager.replacePlaceholder() method must not use a string type hint for the subject, since in fact that can be an array.

  • Packages: Flow FluidAdaptor

TASK: Adjust configs to 5.0 branch

  • Packages: Eel Flow FluidAdaptor Kickstarter

TASK: Make HTTP Request getClientIpAddress() use the request attribute value

This in turn will actually make the method take the trusted proxy settings into account instead of a hardcoded list of headers. Also, this change removes the test for the Forwarded header, because the test had wrong expectations on the actual formatting of the header value. See #1060

  • Packages: Flow FluidAdaptor

BUGFIX: Respect given locale when checking general translation path

for label overrides

This seems to have been forgotten in the original implementation and lead to inconsistent behavior when override labels were present in multiple languages

  • Packages: Flow Unicode

!!!TASK: Safe trusted proxies default value

By default, all proxies were trusted beforehand, but this is an usafe setting in most setups. This change switches the trustedProxies.proxies setting to %env:FLOW_HTTP_TRUSTED_PROXIES, which means no proxies are trusted by default unless something is specified via the environment variable and hence the client IP address, port and host values for the request can not be overridden by any of the Forwarded-* headers.

This is breaking if you use a CDN or reverse proxy on your server and relied on the previous unsafe default setting. In that case you should instead provide a list of the IP ranges of your proxy/CDN servers, either directly or through the FLOW_HTTP_TRUSTED_PROXIES environment variable or explicitly switch back to trust all proxy servers by setting the value to ‘*’.

  • Packages: Flow

TASK: Move object validation out of PersistenceManager

This moves the code used to validate objects using the onFlush event of Doctrine out of the PersistenceManager and into it’s own class.

The listener is then added using Flow settings, instead of PHP code inside PersistenceManager.initializeObject().

  • Packages: Flow Unicode

BUGFIX: Detect checked state for bound object collections

When a collection property with objects is bound to a checkbox VH, this change makes sure to check object identifiers against the passed value when automatically determining the checked state.

Fixes #1229

  • Packages: FluidAdaptor

!!! FEATURE: PSR-3 Logging

This change accomplishes two things. On the one hand it provides PSR-3 compatibility for the logger package. On the other hand it lays the ground work to allow any PSR-3 compatible logger to be used in Flow and applications.

This is breaking in case you implemented the Neos\\Flow\\Log\\LoggerInterface yourself, you should switch to the PSR-3 logger interface (should be easy).

  • Packages: Flow

TASK: Object configuration skips objects with autowiring false

As constructor arguments and injections should not be automatically resolved when either the whole class or the respective method has autowiring false, we should skip any processing of those as early as possible to avoid any unnecessary or even wrong checks for possible autowiring

This should improve compile performance slightly and prevent errors with constructors of singletons with autowiring false. Those would previously throw an exception due to non autowired constructor arguments..

  • Packages: Flow

!!!TASK: Implicit joins in a query makes the result set distinct by default

Before it was possible that a query with implicit joins created a result set with duplicate entries. This change sets the distinct flag on the query object to true when an implicit join is created.

This is breaking, as it might change the result sets of your queries, if you used implicit joins (dot notation subproperty queries).

Resolves #552

  • Packages: Flow

!!! TASK: Cleanup in package management

This is the next step towards a leaner package management, the essential part is that packages are now separated into third party packages and Flow (enabled) packages. All packages are available for object management but Resources and Configuration as well as booting are only expected and managed in Flow (enabled) packages.

The Package class is still a fully Flow enabled package and no adaption should be necessary to packages. GenericPackage is the low level class for describing any other package in the system. According to that change a couple of interfaces where added:

  • BootableInterface describes a bootable package
  • FlowPackageInterface extension of the PackageInterface Flow specifics are now moved over to the FlowPackageInterface
  • PackageKeyAwareInterface defines that the package has a package key. Currently that is implemented by all packages but we might change that at a later point in time.

The notion of protected and objectManagementEnabled is gone from package classes and the interfaces as both are no longer needed.

The PackageManager and interface no longer support deleting of packages, this should happen through composer now. In order the package:delete command is removed as well.

PackageManager::getPackageVersion was moved over to ComposerUtility::getPackageVersion where it should have been in the first place. It was not part of the interface nor marked api.

This change is breaking if you use the PackageManager to get all packages and expect them to be Flow packages. You must now check for instanceof FlowPackageInterface if you expect Flow specific functionality from a package object.

This is also a preparation to drop the PackageManagerInterface as overriding the implementation is neither possible nor sensible. You can directly use the PackageManager object from now.

!!!TASK: Change default charset and collation to utf8mb4

This changes the charset and collation to create table statements in the existing migrations. This make sure the tables are set up correctly independent of the database default configuration.

This is breaking if you have existing tables that do not use ut8mb4 as charset and utf8mb4_unicode_ci as collation. To solve this you need to convert the existing tables. This can be done using the command:

./flow database:setcharset

This will convert the database configured in the settings and all tables inside to use a default character set of utf8mb4 and a default collation of utf8mb4_unicode_ci. It will also convert all character type columns to that combination of charset and collation.

Background information on why this is done can be found in https://medium.com/@adamhooper/in-mysql-never-use-utf8-use-utf8mb4-11761243e434

  • Packages: Flow

FEATURE: Add PSR-6 and PSR-16 support to cache framework

This implements a PSR-6 compatible cache pool http://www.php-fig.org/psr/psr-6 and a factory for those caches.

Additionally a separate PSR-16 compatible SimpleCache is implemented with it’s own factory as the interfaces are incompatible with our interfaces.

Important: Both new cache variants are not integrated into Flows cache management at all, you need to take care of getting and flushing those caches, they are not flushed on ./flow flow:cache:flush.

  • Packages: Cache

FEATURE: Add Forwarded Header support

This adds support for setting the standardized Forwarded Header as described in RFC 7239 Section 4 (https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7239#section-4), as the headers trusted proxy setting. Also, this change allows to set a single header value for the headers, so that working with the single Forwarded header is more convenient:

``` Neos:

headers: ‘Forwarded’


Resolves: #1060

  • Packages: Flow

Revert “!!!TASK: Only manage packages of a `Neos` type”

Reverts neos/flow-development-collection#1154

  • Packages: Flow Pdo Schema

FEATURE: AOP for final methods

This adds support proxied final methods. Previously those were always skipped from proxy building disallowing to advice them via AOP aspects.

Background: Marking methods final is an important tool for framework code as it allows to define extension points more explicitly, but until now we had to avoid the final keyword in order to support AOP. With this change any final modifier is removed from the original class and moved to the proxy class so that the behavior of the proxied class stays the same.

TASK: Update to Doctrine DBAL 2.7 and ORM 2.6

When injecting Doctrine\Common\Persistence\ObjectManager be aware that this is now deprecated, use Doctrine\ORM\EntityManagerInterface instead.

  • Packages: Flow FluidAdaptor

!!!TASK: Add PHP 7.0 scalar type hints to method arguments and return types

This is breaking because it changes the cache interfaces and all implementations need to add scalar typehints. The scope should be very limited though, since the amount of custom cache implementations is assumingly low. The most likely break will be with custom *Privilege implementations that also override the getCacheEntryIdentifier() method.

  • Packages: Flow

TASK: Adjust to PhpUnit 7.1

  • Packages: Arrays Cache Files Flow FluidAdaptor Lock MediaTypes Messages ObjectHandling Schema Unicode

TASK: Remove references to excludeClasses from object management

The setting Neos.Flow.excludeClasses was deprecated since a while but the code handling it was not removed until now.

  • Packages: Flow

!!!TASK: Only scan Private/Translations for available locales

Before the full Resources/Private folder was scanned for available locales, which also included for example the CLDR, which ended up filling the available locales with much more locales than are actually considered “available” in a normal Flow application. This will therefore allow applications to define available locales easily from the Translations provided.

This is breaking, because it will end up with less available locales by default, since only the locales of Flow Translations are considered available, instead of all of CLDR locales.

Related to #1232

  • Packages: Flow

!!! TASK: Remove ``getValue`` from ``AbstractFormFieldViewHelper``

The getValue method was deprecated since Flow 3.0 and should be replaced with calls to getValueAttribute() and if applicable to addAdditionalIdentityPropertiesIfNeeded().

  • Packages: FluidAdaptor

!!! TASK: Remove deprecated ``getClassNameByObject``

Use static TypeHandling::getTypeForValue as immediate replacement.

  • Packages: Flow

TASK: Remove checks for old (pre 3.0) Policy configuration

Unless someone upgrades straight to 5.0 from versions <3.0 this configuration shouldn’t be in anything anymore. Therefore we should be able to safely remove the check and safe some resources in the ConfigurationManager.

  • Packages: Flow

!!! TASK: Remove ``getTemplateVariableContainer`` method

This method was deprecated with the switch to standalone Fluid in Flow 4.0 to get closer to the RenderingContext in the base package. It is therefore now removed.

Any calls to getTemplateVariableContainer can be replaced with calls to getVariableProvider.

  • Packages: FluidAdaptor

!!! TASK: Remove deprecated cache parts in Flow

After splitting caches some deprecated classes were left over for backwards compatibility with existing configurations and backends. All of those are now removed just leaving some wrapper code to make cache creation in Flow easier.

This is breaking if your cache configuration still used one of the deprecated Neos\\Flow\\Cache\\Backend\\... backend classes instead of the Neos\\Cache\\Backend\\... classes. Just adjust your configuration in this case. If you have a custom cache backend it also should implement the interface (and abstract class) from Neos.Cache instead the now removed ones from Neos.Flow. This should also be a rather easy code adjustment.

  • Packages: Flow

TASK: Remove commented ``get``/``set`` Pattern

This is a noop as the code was already commented and there only for reference apparently.

  • Packages: Flow

!!! TASK: Remove deprecated ``ValidationResultsViewHelper``

This removes the old ValidationResultsViewHelper that was moved to be Validation\\\ResultsViewHelper.

So if you were still using <f:form.validationresults> you would now use <f:validation.results>.

  • Packages: FluidAdaptor

!!! TASK: Remove deprecated unversioned ``XliffParser``

The Neos\\Flow\\I18n\\Xliff\\XliffParser is fully replaced by the Neos\\Flow\\I18n\\Xliff\\V12\\XliffParser so if you were still using the old unversioned class, you can simply switch to the new one.

  • Packages: Flow

TASK: Remove deprecated ``RawViewHelper``

This viewhelper is available in the standalone Fluid package we are using since last major and and it is not a problem if you are just using the viewhelper as it is automatically available just as this one. But if you extended this viewhelper for some you need to adapt to the original viewhelper.

  • Packages: FluidAdaptor

TASK: Change package name to Neos.Flow

In the caching section the flow package name was still TYPO3.Flow. So this PR changes the package name to the current Neos.Flow.

BUGFIX: if cached configuration does not contain all configuration types, ensure on next run the configuration is cached again

## Problem Description

the following happens in Production context, if letting the CLI compile request run through, but abort the web request.

In this case: - the cached Configurations.php object does not contain information for NodeTypes etc. - thus, node types are loaded on every request - this leads to a slow system which can only be fixed by removing the cached Configuration file.

To solve this issue, we now check whether the unprocessed configuration contains the right infos before serializing them.

BUGFIX: Read currencyData from existing file

Added with https://github.com/neos/flow-development-collection/pull/1241

Thanks to @mficzel for finding that.

  • Packages: Flow

[TASK] Compile CommandController arguments statically

Instead of using the ReflectionService at runtime to determine arguments for commands they will be compiled statically and just read from the array. Additionally this was centralized into the CommandManager as CommandController, RequestBuilder and CommandManager all fetched similar information from the ReflectionService.

TASK: Remove deprecated ``setPattern`` method in ``Uri``

The Neos\\Flow\\Security\\RequestPattern\\Uri contained the deprecated setPattern method still that removed from the interface and no longer used.

Related: #1256

  • Packages: Flow

!!! TASK: Remove deprecated ``BaseViewhelper``

The BaseViewHelper is deprecated since 2 major versions and it’s not best practice to use base tags anymore. The functionality can be replicated by other means if needed.

This is breaking if you use the BaseViewHelper in your templates. You should replace that with a simple HTML <base> tag and get the baseUri from request yourself.

  • Packages: FluidAdaptor

FEATURE: Allow to use CLDR to format currency

Some currencies have specific rules for their formatting, overriding the rules that might be used to format for a given locale. The Japanese Yen for example never has decimal digits, and the Swiss Franc is rounded using five decimals.

This change adds support for that. The CurrencyViewHelper accepts an optional currencyCode argument now and passes it down to the method formatCurrencyNumber in NumberFormatter doing the actual work.

  • Packages: Flow FluidAdaptor

TASK: Enable test for log rotation in FileBackend

The needed support for touch() and rename() in vfsStream exists by now.

  • Packages: Flow

BUGFIX: Set orphanRemoval for non-AggregateRoots

After fixing the issue #1079, orphan removal is per default false for properties from classes which are no aggregate roots, because the default value for orphan removal in the ManyToMany, OneToOne and OneToMany annotations is “false”. Unfortunately we can not prevent the default value in the annotation, so we can not rely on the property not being set to fall back to our defaults. This change Fixes that by switching the check for orphanRemoval annotation value fallbacks and always apply our default value for non-aggregate root non-value objects.

Fixes #1127

FEATURE: Allow authentication of specified user in behavior tests

This allows for defining users by identifier and then using them in behavioral test cases

  • Packages: Flow

[TASK] Include Exception class in ExceptionHandler with full path

The ExceptionHandler includes the Flow Exception class directly by using the relative path. This might not work out if at some point we decide to combine autoloaded classes as this class is autoloaded and the relative path will be wrong then. Using the FLOW_PATH_FLOW constant we can easily construct a full path to the file.

  • Packages: Flow

TASK: Use RouterInterface instead of concrete implementation

Currently the concrete Router Implementation is used instead of the more flexible RouterInterface.

This PR ensures the RouterInterface is used.

  • Packages: Flow

FEATURE: Add APCu cache backend

This adds a new cache backend for use with the “APC User Cache” (APCu).

Since the APC “extension is considered unmaintained and dead” according to the PHP manual, this also removes the ApcBackend.

  • Packages: Cache Flow

TASK: Pass affected entities to flush as array, not one-by-one

The ObjectPathMappingRepository.persistEntities() method looped over the entities and passed them to flush() one-by-one. They can be passed as the array at hand directly.

  • Packages: Flow

FEATURE: Add `remove` flowQuery operation

The operation removes the given items from the current FlowQuery context. To do so it accepts a single argument that may be an array, an object or a FlowQuery.

SECURITY: Update paragonie/random_compat to 2.x minimum

The paragonie/random_compat library could use OpenSSL, and that in turn could lead to the use of an insecure CSPRNG (openssl_random_pseudo_bytes())

This change fixes #1222 by updating the dependency from ^1.0 to ^2.0.

TASK: Make Now immutable

This simply replaces Now’s base class \DateTime with \DateTimeImmutable as planned since 4.0

  • Packages: Flow

BUGFIX: Avoid useless calls to verifyRedisVersionIsSupported()

The set() call returns a boolean, so the check instanceof \Redis always fails. That means on every set, the “supported version check” is run.

  • Packages: Cache Flow

!!! TASK: Add factory method to ``AuthenticationProviderInterface``

There was a long standing comment about having the constructor be part of the interface but that was deactivated back in the day as the proxy constructor was incompatible with the interface then. A interface defined way of creating an AuthenticationProvider makes sense though therefore we introduce a static create method that returns a fresh instance of the class in question. This removes the implicit knowledge about the constructor in the code.

This is breaking if you implemented your own AuthenticationProviderInterface without making use of the AbstractProvider which provides a basic create method. You may need to add this create method in your implementation.

  • Packages: Flow

TASK: Re-enable PersistenceMagicAspectTest

These tests were skipped since it was adapted to new namespaces because a wrong use statement was added back then.

This brings back 14 tests by fixing that.

  • Packages: Flow

FEATURE: Introduce findAllIterator() method

> If the amount of the stored data increases, receiving all objects using a findAll() may > consume a lot more memory than available. In this cases, you should use the findAllIterator(). > This method returns an ``IterableResult``over which you can iterate, getting only one object at a time.

As this pattern is used a lot in Neos repositories, it would make sense to move it to the base repository class.

FEATURE: Add PHPs json_encode options to stringify eel helper

This feature adds the possibility to pass option constants to the Json.stringify Eel helper. This is needed for example if you want to have unescaped UTF8 characters in the output.

The usage looks like this:

@process.jsonStringify = ${Json.stringify(value, [‘JSON_UNESCAPED_UNICODE’, ‘JSON_FORCE_OBJECT’])}

It may look a bit weird on the first look to pass PHP options to a Javascript-like function. But its a PHP method in the end that does the encoding, so the PHP constants are the right options here.

!!!TASK: Only manage packages of a `Neos` type

Our package management should never touch third party packages ever and should only have to deal with packages made for Flow and Neos. Those packages are the only ones expected to have Configuration, Resources and a Package file. Everything else should be handled as black box. This serves two purposes, one it shortens the bootstrap time by not having as many packages to boot. Basically third party packages now do not matter anymore in terms of boot performance. Secondly it further reduces the scope of the package manager which should ultimately be minimal.

This modifies the package manager to only care for packages which have a neos-* package type. Everything else will not be seen anymore.

This is marked breaking just because it is a big change, technically your packages should always be neos-* type if you wanted them handled by Flow and Neos.

  • Packages: Flow

FEATURE: Enable split source for settings files

Settings can now be split source. The Flow Settings now come split to make finding something easier.

Additionally files with the same name as a configuration source but with yml extension will result in an exception to avoid confusion.

Fixes: #1180

  • Packages: Flow

TASK: Cache expressions as strings

This might seem counter-intuitive at first but serves two purposes:

1) Incremental change to the expressions is possible now, before a change in policy protected classes would usually lead to an exception and required you to flush the full cache, this prevents the issue and therefore makes developing much smoother.

2) Caches can be moved to redis or any other backend as it’s only strings now.

The second part also makes a further separation of EEL and Flow possible in the future, eventually allowing EEL to be come a package that could be used independently from Flow.

TASK: Updated some images in documentation

Updated some documentation images to get rid of the old FLOW3 stuff.

  • Packages: Flow

!!! TASK: Make ObjectManagerInterface a superset of PSR-11

Makes the ObjectManagerInterface fully compatible with the PSR-11 ContainerInterface.

This is a breaking change in case you implemented ObjectManagerInterface because you would have to implement the has method now in your implementation.

  • Packages: Flow

TASK: Update standalone Fluid to 2.3.x

Pulling in the latest improvements in Fluid.

One major improvement is the addition of an escaping toggle:

` {escaping off} `

In a template, layout or partial. When toggled off it causes the template parser to skip escaping of all outputs from ViewHelpers, variable outputs etc.

For legacy reasons the feature is added with backwards compatibility for the original escaping modifier. Therefore, the following values are all equally possible and mean the same:

` {escaping off} {escapingEnabled off} {escaping false} {escaping=false} {escaping=off} {escaping = off} {escapingEnabled = off} {escapingEnabled = false} {escapingEnabled off} {escapingEnabled false} `

  • Packages: Flow FluidAdaptor

!!!TASK: Remove deactivating packages from the package manager

Packages no longer have state, they are either available or not available entirely depending on the fact if they are installed. The API is changed accordingly to reflect this change.

The implemented PackageManager still supports the getActivePackages and isPackageActive methods for backwards compatibility but both are deprecated and removed from the interface.

This is breaking if you rely on the functionality and requires future changes if you use the deprecated methods.

  • Packages: Flow

TASK: Fix code format in docs

  • Add code-block syntax to format php code as php code.
  • Fix indentation in code example
  • Indent using spaces instead of tabs.
  • Fix position of curly braces.

BUGFIX: Respect configured baseUri when resolving URIs

This fixes a regression intdroduced with #1126 that prevented the configured baseUri from being respected when building URIs using the UriBuilder.


Instead of using the Request URI as base for generated URIs this fix uses the Request Base URI. Usually the result is the same, but not if a different baseUri is configured from the one being requested.

TASK: Allow debugging of “silent command failures”

Sometimes a subcommand execution fails without a proper error message. And it may happen that even the PHP error is empty at this point.

The error may be “Argument list too long”, but this cannot be debugged easily.

This change dumps the command that was to be executed into a file, if the length of the command exceeds a threshhold. One can then run it manually and hopefully see a helpful error message.

TASK: Update symfony and doctrine dependencies

This change updates the following packages to recent versions:

  • doctrine/migrations: ~1.3.0 -> ~1.6.0
  • doctrine/dbal: ~2.5.0 -> ~2.6.0
  • symfony/yaml: ~2.8.0 -> ~4.0.0

BUGFIX: Pass signal information once, not once more for each slot

Signals can pass arguments to slots. These are amended with signal information, if desired.

Because slots are hadled in a loop, and the passed signal arguments array was used in that loop, the addition of the signal information was done mutliple times, if requested.

This change makes sure that the signal information is only added once.

FEATURE: FileHelper to read files and metadata about files

Adds a basic FileHelper to allow reading files and getting file metadata from EEL.

BUGFIX: Fix DateTimeImmutable property mapping for custom date formats

This fixes support for mapping of DateTimeImmutable properties introduced with #677.


If the source is an array (for example when specifying date as well as dateFormat) the conversion fails because DateTimeConverter::overrideTimeIfSpecified() still used the DateTime type hint. This change adjusts the code so that it works with DateTimeImmutable instances as well.

BUGIFX: RsaWalletServicePhpTest broken depends on PHP configuration

This change fixes RsaWalletServicePhpTest on recent Alpine Linux with PHP 7.2 (at least, maybe other system can be affected too). I didn’t find a clear documentation about the reason of this failure:

1) Neos\Flow\Tests\Unit\Security\Cryptography\RsaWalletServicePhpTest::encryptingAndDecryptingBasicallyWorks openssl_pkey_new(): private key length is too short; it needs to be at least 384 bits, not 0

/…/Classes/Security/Cryptography/RsaWalletServicePhp.php:92 /…/Tests/Unit/Security/Cryptography/RsaWalletServicePhpTest.php:49

This configuration is as light as possible to not slow down the test suite too much.

FEATURE: Make ObjectManager compatible to PSR-11

PSR-11 is the container interface and it is rather easy to make the ObjectManager compatible with it, so here we are.

!!! TASK: Fix ViewHelpers and remove render attributes

Refactor most view helpers to don’t use arguments inside the render function to fit more to the Fluid creation and get rid of the current reflection workaround in the future, see #842.

Also changes the disabled and required attribute to boolean and fixes the FluidAdaptor accordingly.

Also fixes issue #637 so security view helpers without the security context set will return false and no error.

BUGFIX: Respect `void` return type annotation in proxy method

This is a follow-up to #1091 that didn’t entirely fix the bug mentioned in #1065.

BUGFIX: routing:routepath command does not use routing DTOs

Before this fix, calling ./flow routing:routepath /somePath will result in something like
