Zend Framework 1.11.5 Released

The Zend Framework team announces the immediate availability of Zend Framework
1.11.5, our fifth maintenance release in the 1.11 series. This release includes
a dozen bug fixes.

You may download ZF 1.11.5 from the
Zend Framework site.

For a full list of resolved issues, you can visit the changelog:

This version includes three notable changes.

First, Zend_Gdata has been updated to use HTTPS for those GData services that
support it. This should be a seamless change for most GData users.

Second, Zend_Application now supports “.dist” configuration files. This allows
you to create the following:

and, while still specifying application.ini as the configuration file, fall
back to the .dist variant. This is useful for working on teams, where
individuals may wish to tailor their configuration environment without
necessarily checking in those environment-specific changes. Thanks goes out to
Wil Moore for this improvement.

Third, Mike van Riel offered to convert our API
documentation generation to DocBlox. We’d
already been considering it for ZF2, but on seeing the flexibility of the
templating system, and, more importantly for us in terms of packaging, the speed
and minimal resources it utilizes in generating the output, we were sold. (API
documentation generation time was reduced from taking 80-100 minutes to less
than 10.) You can view the results for yourself.

I’d like to thank everyone who contributed code to these releases, including
those who submitted patches, translated documentation, or reported issues. Keep
your eyes peeled for another maintenance release at the end of next month!
