Zend Framework 1.12.0 Stable Released!

August 27, 2012

Events, Zend Framework

After four release candidates and months of effort by contributors and community members, the Zend Framework team is pleased to announce the immediate availability of version 1.12.0, the first stable release in the 1.12 series

You can download from the following locations:

This release primarily includes bug fixes and minor updates, but also has several new features.

Zend_Loader changes

A number of autoloaders and autoloader facilities were back ported from ZF2 to provide performant alternatives to those already available in the 1.X releases.  These include: Zend_Loader_StandardAutoloader, which improves on Zend_Loader_Autoloader by allowing the ability to specify a specific path to associate with a vendor prefix or namespace; Zend_Loader_ClassMapAutoloader, which provides the ability to use lookup tables for autoloading (which are typically the fastest possible way to autoload); and Zend_Loader_AutoloaderFactory, which can both create and update autoloaders for you, as well as register them with spl_autoload_register().

Zend_EventManager

Zend_EventManager is a component that allows you to attach and detach listeners to named events, both on a per-instance basis as well as via shared collections; trigger events; and interrupt execution of listeners.

Zend_Http_UserAgent_Features_Adapter_Browscap

This class provides a features adapter that calls get_browser() in order to discover mobile device capabilities to inject into UserAgent device instances. It is now the default features adapter for the Zend_Http_UserAgent component.

Browscap (http://browsers.garykeith.com/) is an open project dedicated to collecting an disseminating a “database” of browser capabilities. PHP has built-in support for using these files via the get_browser() function. This function requires that your php.ini provides a browscap entry pointing to the PHP-specific php_browscap.ini file which is available at http://browsers.garykeith.com/stream.asp?PHP_BrowsCapINI.

Zend_Mobile_Push

Zend_Mobile_Push is a component for implementing push notifications for the 3 major push notification platforms (Apple (Apns), Google (Gcm) and Microsoft (Mpns).

Zend_Mobile_Push was contributed by Mike Willbanks.

Zend_Gdata_Analytics

Zend_Gdata_Analytics is an extension to Zend_Gdata to allow interaction with Google’s Analytics Data Export API. This extension does not encompass any major changes in the overall operation of Zend_Gdata components.

Zend_Gdata_Analytics was contributed by Daniel Hartmann.

Bug Fixes

In addition over 200 reported issues in the tracker have been fixed. We’d like to particularly thank Rob Allen, who acted as the 1.12 release manager; and Adam Lundrigan, Frank Brückner and Martin Hujer for their efforts in making this happen. Thanks also to the many people who ran the ZF1 unit tests and reported their results!

    As for JT and Greg, I’ve installed Zend Server 6 PHP 5.4 and all my applications made with ZF 1.x now raise a Fatal Error while trying to autoload my custom classes, even if the include_path is set correctly and it looks for them in the right paths…. it seems, they are not loaded… any ideas?

  2. Greg Says:

    jt: did you have any response ? I’m concerned. I need ZF1 working with PHP 5.4.

  3. Beau Beauchamp Says:

  4. jt Says:
