Version 1.4.0 of the Parse PHP SDK is now available for use. This is a jump from 1.3.0 which now includes quite a few new features. Among them being relative time queries, aggregate queries and index management.

Release 1.4.0 contains quite a few new features that we hope you’ll enjoy! Please keep in mind that relative time queries, aggregate queries and index management are only available in later versions of parse server (versions 2.6.5 and above, and versions 2.7.0 and above for index management). The other features present here have been available in parse server for some time and have now been hooked up into this sdk.

Version 1.4.0 is reverse compatible with 1.3.0, so you’re good for upgrading 👍 . Just keep in mind that some new features may not be available depending on your version of parse server. You can check your version of parse server from this sdk using ParseServerInfo::getVersion to check if you don’t know for sure (version checking is compatible with older versions of parse server).

All new features have been added into the Table of Contents in our README for your reading convenience.
