    Zend Framework 1.6 is released.

    http://framework.zend.com/

    Looks good! Although I would rather it supported jQuery that Dojo...

    Cool! But seriously, that site design is so way over the top! I felt like I was in Las Vegas when the page finished loading. Prototype or jQuery or YUI seem like better choices to me than Dojo. But I haven't even looked at it yet, so I won't say too much yet

    I've played around with it a bit mostly with the new captcha portion. Like many I would have been much happier if jQuery was chosen over Dojo.

    4th person in preference of jquery over dojo but shouldn't be long before someone submits some sort of adapter (have you seen the amount of services classes?)

    Make that 5! I wish they had gone with JQuery, it's definitely the most popular JS framework out there at the moment and everyone I've spoke to wishes they used it instead. I think it's because Dojo is more based on rich 'widgets' and gives desktop like behaviour where as JQuery is still quite DIY in that regard and is more for scripting.

    jQuery is the most innovative syntax-wise. It's the most comfortable to use, as I see it... But it's not quite a tool-kit. It's like Prototype. It's good, but needs some tool-kit to be built on-top of it to make it more popular.

    i also love jquery and hate dojo. But for me it isn't a problem 'cause i use jquery everyday with zend framework for all my projects as i don't want to use any javascript view helper of any type (be it jquery helpers or dojo ones) 'cause they put a lot of obtrusive javascript code in the html page. Instead i love the unobtrusiveness of jquery

    I think they chose dojo for something they have in common, "bloatness"

    Just kidding a little bit. Overall I like ZF and use jQuery with it, but as a tookit probably ExtJS would have been more appealing to me. There me be license issues though.

    Forget about any of the new additions they mention in the change list: lets all talk about the most inconsequential part of the Zend framework! That is, the javascript library that ships with it and that you can change as easily as you can change a script tag.

    Where have you even read that ZF supports Dojo but not prototype or jquery?

    Certainly you can use whatever you like with Zend Framework. At the moment, I use YUI personally.

    I went to the talk about Dojo at ZendCon by Alex somebody. In the q&a section he commented that Dojo is very modular and you only have to use the bits you are interested in. ie. you don't pay a penalty if you don't want all their UI stuff. Apparently Dojo has a JQuery-like component (Dojo.query maybe?) which is roughly on par with JQuery in terms of size and speed.

    As I don't use either, I can't comment on either very well!

    Regards,

    Rob...
