    Is this a bad sign for Zend Framework?

    I've been really excited by the zend framework - not because it does things that other frameworks can't, but it represents a possible standard framework for the community to adopt.

    Anyway, i just read that its lead developer quit, and was wondering what the implications would be for the community adoption of the framework as a whole?

    I doubt it will have any influence, as the backing is still strong, and as you said, there's a new leader already to step in.

    if the reason was because the framework "sucks" then that's bad, apparently I think they resigned for other reasons.

    They did indeed. I didn't mean to imply anything else. Management clashing and a better or more challenging job as the reasons for developers to leave a team are not good signs though, but it is quite common and for sure not exclusive to Zend.
    My comments were meant to be directed to Zend as an organization (meaning refactoring as adjustments within the company) and not to their framework.

    My apollogies if I didn't express myself clearier. I woke up today with the sarcasm_mode "On".
