Hello, I didnt get any solution in my last thread http://forum.phalcon.io/discussion/3256/skip-columns-on-validation. Are there any changes? This is really critical issue when you cant set system values before SQL execution which are required in database model. With current pattern you need set up all values before validation ie in controller instead of model. Do you plan any changes in core? It would be really great add new possibilities into model initialization.
