Zend Framework is out
An case you missed it (it’s all over Planet PHP), the first release of the Zend framework is out. Have only glanced so far so have no valid opinion – will be spending a good while looking first. Andi Gutmans announced it here along with further information here.
In a way, it marks a big shift in PHP as a community – an unavoidable meeting of voluntary contribution vs. commercial development. No things will probably not be the same again but at the same time, seeing this released is, for me, like a big sigh of relief – some wheels just aren’t fun to keep reinventing.
