The Zend Framework community is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Zend Framework 2.0.0beta2. Packages and installation instructions are available at:
This is the second in a series of planned beta releases. The beta release cycle is following the "gmail" style of betas, whereby new features will be added in each new release, and BC will not be guaranteed; beta releases will happen approximately every six weeks. The desire is for developers to adopt and work with new components as they are shipped, and provide feedback so we can polish the distribution.
Once all code in the proposed standard distribution has reached maturity and reasonable stability, we will freeze the API and prepare for Release Candidate status.
Featured components and functionality of 2.0.0beta2 include:
send(Message $message). The SMTP, File, and Sendmail transports were rewritten to consume Message objects, and to introduce Options classes.
init()triggering, configuration gathering, and autoloader seeding were moved to event listeners.
In addition, over 100 bug and feature requests were handled since 2.0.0beta1.
The skeleton application and a skeleton module built for 2.0.0beta1 have been updated for 2.0.0beta2, and are a great place to look to help get you started. You may also want to check out the quick start guide to the MVC. powerful.
As a reminder, all ZF2 components are also available individually as Pyrus packages; packages.zendframework.com is our official channel.
I'd like to thank each and every person who has contributed ideas, feedback, pull requests (no pull request is too small!), testing, and more -- we have a solid chunk of quality new functionality to test now thanks to your efforts!
