Kint v2.1.2 Release NotesRelease Date: 2017-07-03 // almost 5 years ago
🛠 Most of this release is bugfixes, but there are a few notable changes.
- 👀 Disabled the binary, DOMNode, DOMIterator, and Serialize plugins. They're still there but you have to opt-in now. For reasons behind these choices see #244
- Max depth has been lowered to 6. Because Kint currently supplies much more information than v1 did it's also a bit slower. This is compounded by the constantly increasing interdependent hierarchies in use in modern PHP systems. Because the access paths are a thing in Kint 2 it's very easy to run a second dump to get deeper in, so this will barely make a dent for usability, but lowering the depth limit one level typically cuts runtime in 3!
- 🔌 There is now a
parserPluginsmethod on the
Kint_Rendererwhich can alter or supply a list of plugins for the parser to be initialized with. A whitelist on the text renderer makes use of this by disabling most of the plugins so text, cli, and plain dumps are fast.
- Dropped reference detection support below 5.2.1. This had been causing infinite loops since alpha2 and no-one noticed. /me clumsily foreshadows impending PHP version requirement bump
