Zend Framework 2.0.0rc1 Released!

We’ve tagged, created and pushed packages, and can finally announce that the first release candidate of ZF2, Zend Framework 2.0.0rc1, is now available!

This marks the first stable API for ZF2. From this point forward, we plan to only address critical bugfixes and to create more and better documentation for the final release. Our plan is to do an RC weekly until we feel we can call the code stable.

It’s been a busy 2 weeks — we’ve managed around 200 pull requests with a variety of features and bugfixes. Despite the activity, Rob Allen reports that he has had to do little to no updating for his tutorial!

For the full release log, please see the release announcement.
