Zend Framework 2.0.0rc1 Released!

July 25, 2012

News, Zend Framework

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.

    Google use Python. What is so joy in ZF2? PHP is slowest in anyway.

    Should we not make ZF2 for Go language back-end? PHP is dead since Go language started.

    Beta 3 to 4 included a massive performance increase (when using defaults; aka the skeleton).

    4 to 5 didn’t offer anything noticeable to me, nor do the docs seem to mention anything performance related. Same for all 3 RC releases.

    I think they’re only focused on fixes/documentation now. I imagine performance might only be re-examined after ZF 2 final, though I have no problem with performance as-is.

    Curious if there will be any Performance Optimisation before full release?
