Zend Framework 1.10.4 Released

On behalf of the Zend Framework community, I’m pleased to announce
the immediate availability of Zend Framework 1.10.4, our fourth maintenance
release in the 1.10 series. You can download it from our downloads page:


This release includes approximately 50 bugfixes, the majority of which were
contributed during our Bug
Hunt Days two weeks ago
. The fixes contributed help stabilize
and improve the 1.10 series.

Three fixes in particular are worth noting:

  • ZF-7493:
    an important serialization improvement in Zend_Amf that has been benchmarked
    as providing 200-300% faster serialization of large datasets.
  • ZF-9263: a
    fix to Zend_Loader::isReadable() to fix a regression found on Windows
    platforms. This fix should eliminate most if not all raised warnings that
    occurred during resource and plugin loading.
  • ZF-9504: a
    patch was applied to Zend_XmlRpc_Value to make value generation more
    efficient. Benchmarks and profiling show enormous changes on large datasets:
    in one example, memory usage drops from >1GB to 20MB, while dropping from
    execution times of >60s to around 10s.

We’d like to thank everyone who committed time, code, and translations since
the 1.10.3 release — the community has been quite productive!
