CakePHP 3.x.x Kernel Only Upgrade

Hi, everybody!

With CakePHP 2.x, when I want upgrade the kernel of an application, I just download the new version zip file, extracts it and copy the “cakephp-2.x.x/lib/Cake” folder to my “myapp/lib/” folder. Simple like that.

So… Is that possible in 3.x.x version?

Thanks a lot!

Ideally, you should be using Composer.

CakePHP 3 application structure is a little different from CakePHP 2, and while a drop in replacement should be possible, you might get better control and extensibility out of using Composer.
