Expressive 1.0.0RC6/RC7 Released!

Posted on:

The Zend Framework community is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Expressive 1.0.0rc6 and 1.0.0rc7!

You can install the latest versions using Composer, via the create-project command:

$ composer create-project -s rc zendframework/zend-expressive-skeleton expressive

You can update your existing applications using:

$ composer update

Unfortunately, zend-expressive RC6 introduces some breaking changes. Several issues were raised that could not be handled in a fully backwards compatible fashion, and we felt they were important enough to introduce before a stable release is made. We continue to honor previous application configuration; however, deprecation notices will be raised, and the code for parsing the old configuration will be removed for the 1.1 release.

We also released zend-expressive-skeleton RC7 quick on the heels of RC6 in order to correct an issue with installation whereby the development dependencies at time of invocation were installed, rather than the rewritten ones. This affected only the skeleton, which is why we're announcing RC6 and RC7 releases.

See below for full details on what has changed.

Zend Framework 3 Update and Roadmap

Posted on:

In October, while at ZendCon, I presented a talk on Zend Framework 3 entitled "Components, PSR-7, and Middleware: Zend Framework 3." You can view it online, but this post discusses current status, details some decisions, and points to the work still to be done. It's a long read; grab a warm beverage, maybe some popcorn, and take your time.
