Nette Framework 2.4 (2018–09–18) has just been released.

Note that dependencies in composer.json has been relaxed to ^2.4, so ZIP packages are now distinguished by build date instead of patch version. Hence this release is “2.4 2018–07–03”

This summarizes the differences from release 2018–07–03

This release should by fully compatible with PHP 7.3.0RC1.

SameSite protection

An important security feature is SameSite cookie support (in czech).

Enhanced CSP support

Beside Content-Security-Policy you can define Content-Security-Policy-Report-Only and the new Feature-Policy headers:

http:
    cspReportOnly:
        report-uri: https://example.com/report
        script-src:
            - self
            - https://cdn.example.com

    featurePolicy:
        geolocation:
            - self
            - https://example.com
        camera: *

The syntax now allows you to use booleans:

http:
    csp:
        upgrade-insecure-requests: true
        block-all-mixed-content: false

Secured (HTTPS) cookies

Secure cookies are a type of cookie that are transmitted over encrypted HTTP connections. It instructs the browser that the cookie should only be returned to the application over encrypted connections.

Now you can use option auto which sends cookie as secured when HTTPS is used and vice versa:

session:
    cookieSecure: auto

http:
    cookieSecure: auto
