DotKernel was updated to support Zend Expressive 3 alongside with PSR-15 middleware.

We have updated the core packages to support PSR-15 Middleware.

By updating the core packages both frontend and admin are easier to migrate.

The new versions are:
frontend -> 1.0.0
admin -> 1.0.1

If your project is a DotKernel 3 instance (based on expressive 2), you can migrate your project to Zend Expressive 3 by following this guide.


What’s new

  • Runs on Zend Stratigility / Zend Expressive 3.0
  • Middleware is now PSR-15 compliant
  • PHP >=7.1 Support



  • No functional changes were made in the core code
  • If your middleware code is based on the dotkernel/dot-controller package no middleware migration is needed
  • If your middleware code is based on the http-interop/http-middleware migration must be made to implement interfaces in psr/http-server-middleware
