Yii News 2021 Issue 4

Happy New Year and Merry Christmas!

With you Alexander Makarov and the latest Yii news release.

There were not many newscasts this year. This fourth. But there was really a lot done. Despite the fact that the year turned out to be not easy, I think that the overall progress is excellent:

We plan to start 2022 with:

  • Package releases.

  • Optimizing performance.

  • Writing a guide.

  • Updates on the site.

  • Articles about Yii3.

  • And, probably, something else amusing.

Now let’s move on to interesting events that have occurred since the last news release.


The foundation allowed us to work again with Alexey Rogachev… He was already on the team in 2017 and then helped a lot with Yii2. He is currently working on a radical improvement. API documentation generator for Yii2 and updates the site along the way, correcting errors. He will probably join the work on Yii3 later.

Another big news – now you can help the Yii fund in cryptocurrency
