<h2>Version 1.3</h2>
<p>Release Date: April 3, 2006</p>

<ul>
<li>Added support for <a href="models.html">Models</a>.</li>
<li>Redesigned the database libraries to support additional RDBMs (Postgre, MySQLi, etc.).</li>
<li>Redesigned the <a href="./database/active_record.html">Active Record class</a> to enable more varied types of queries with simpler syntax, and advanced features like JOINs.</li>
<li>Added a feature to the database class that lets you run <a href="./database/call_function.html">custom function calls</a>.</li>
<li>Added support for <a href="controllers.html">private functions</a> in your controllers.  Any controller function name that starts with an underscore will not be served by a URI request.</li>
<li>Added the ability to pass your own initialization parameters to your <a href="creating_libraries.html">custom core libraries</a> when using $this->load->library()</li>
<li>Added support for running standard <a href="urls.html">query string URLs</a>.  These can be optionally enabled in your config file.</li>
<li>Added the ability to  <a href="urls.html">specify a "suffix"</a>, which will be appended to your URLs.  For example, you could add .html to your URLs, making them appear static. This feature is enabled in your config file.</li>

all controller methods are prefixed with <dfn>_ci</dfn> to avoid controller collisions. A list of reserved function names can be <a href="controllers.html">found here</a>.</li>
<li>Redesigned how the "CI" super object is referenced, depending on whether PHP 4 or 5 is being run, since PHP 5 allows a more graceful way to manage objects that utilizes a bit less resources.</li>
<li>Deprecated: <var>$this->db->use_table()</var> has been deprecated. Please read the <a href="./database/active_record.html">Active Record</a> page for information.</li>

<li>Fixed a typo in the URI class.  $this->total_segment() should be plural: $this->total_segments()</li>

<li>Fixed some typos in the user guide</li>
</ul>
