The Zend Developer Zone has posted an update about the release of the latest stable version of the Zend Framework - version 1.7.3:
The last DevZone post about Zend Framework was announcing a release candidate for version v1.7. We got a little behind and missed the fact that not only has v1.7 been officially released, but the team just recently announced v1.7.3!!
A full list of bugs fixed can be found in the bugs system and new features of the 1.7.x series included the Zend_AMF component, an update to Djoj, a Google book search API and several perfomance enhancements across the board.
You can download the latest version here.
