Migrating to Version 3.1

Minimum required PHP version is 7.2.

All name changes mentioned in this document mean that the original name obviously still exists and works, it is just marked as deprecated. You may encounter the IDE visually marking them as deprecated.

Nette version 3.1 means that you have these packages installed in version 3.1.*. Other packages may have higher or lower version numbers, compatibility is ensured by Composer.
