be those that are being validated by some rules as defined in CModel::rules()
for the particular scenario.

The ‘scenario’ parameter is removed. You should get and set the model scenario
Changed CModel::getValidators() and removed CModel::getValidatorsForAttribute().

Changed CModel::isAttributeRequired() and CModel::getValidatorsForAttribute().
The scenario parameter is removed. The model’s scenario property will be

Changes Related with Eager Loading for Relational Active Record
By default, a single JOIN statement will be generated and executed for all relations involved in the eager loading. If the primary table has its LIMIT or OFFSET query option set, it will be queried alone first, followed by another SQL statement that brings back all its related objects. Previously in version 1.0.x, the default behavior is that there will be N+1 SQL statements if an eager loading involves N HAS_MANY or MANY_MANY relations.
Changes Related with Table Alias in Relational Active Record
The default alias for a relational table is now the same as the corresponding
relation name. Previously in version 1.0.x, by default Yii would automatically
generate a table alias for each relational table, and we had to use the prefix
??. to refer to this automatically generated alias.
The alias name for the primary table in an AR query is fixed to be
Previsouly in version 1.0.x, it was the same as the table name. This will cause
existing AR query code to break if they explicity specify column prefixes using
the table name. The solution is to replace these prefixes with ‘t.’.
Changes Related with Tabular Input
For attribute names, using Field[$i] is not valid anymore, they should look like [$i]Field in order to support array-typed fields
