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.
