Announcement: ZF repository rename 2016-05-03

Posted on:

In contrast to Zend Framework 2, which was a complete rewrite and break with the architecture of Zend Framework 1, the Zend Framework 3 initiative is more of an evolutionary change. We are laser-focused on keeping as much backwards compatibility as possible, and providing reasonable migration steps for our users. Instead of moving development to a new repository, we have split code into multiple component repositories, and made the main Zend Framework repository a "meta" repository, containing dependency information only.

Another way of putting it: changes to the main repository are happening incrementally, and version 3 will just be a new major version update within the existing repository.

However, such evolutionary change poses a slight logistical problem: the repository is currently named "zf2".

Zend Framework 3 Update for 2016-04-21

This is an installment in an ongoing series of posts on ZF3 development status. In the last three weeks, we've done a lot:

  • ~160 pull requests merged, and ~110 issues closed.
  • Over 60 component releases.
  • Completion of the zend-mvc version 3 refactors.
  • All components are now forwards-compatible with existing v3 releases, including those that depend on zend-stdlib.
  • Progress on the documentation initiatives, including 11 new components documented.
  • Announcement of issue closures.

Issues, Tags, and Closures (oh my)

Hello Zend Frameworkians.

I want to make you aware of some upcoming changes to the issues that are currently logged in GitHub. We currently have 426 open issues that are logged against the (now) meta zf2 repository. The vast majority of these are now in the wrong place, as we've split our once monolithic single repository into the many single component repositories. These issues should be moved from the zf2 repository to the correct component that the issue relates to.

In preparation for this, we've been doing a little housekeeping and have already closed a few minor issues that have been open since before we even used GitHub for issue tracking. Matthew, Enrico and I also had a long discussion at Midwest PHP on the best way to handle these issues, and we came up with a plan of attack that hopefully will allow us to close off a bunch of historical issues that are no longer relevant, and then move issues that need to be moved to the correct place.
