The Zend Framework team would like to thank everyone who made this release possible. As always, our generous ZF community has provided countless new features, bug fixes, documentation translations, etc. We’d also like to thank Adobe Systems and Wade Arnold for contributing the new Zend_Amf component. A big thanks to PHP Belgium and everyone who participated in bug hunt day and/or the Zend Framework bug hunt week.

Finally, we’d like to thank all of those whom we’ve forgotten to thank above. :) Once again, we’re reminded that Zend Framework is about much more than code, it is about community. See y’all online.
