Jared White provides us with an update on his two main projects right now - xajax and Willowgarden - including some highlights surrounding the Willowgarden framework.
I know I promised to post something last week, but I was just feeling too crummy. However, I'm much better this week and getting back into the swing of things. Man, I feel like most of June just completely disappeared on me.
Anyway, I want to give you all a status update on the two big PHP projects I've been working on, xajax and Willowgarden. First off, however, I want to thank my day-job employer, Commandtext, for allowing me to spend some time working on these projects during business hours.
The main update to the xajax project is a shift in the API to move towards version 0.5 (a large shift that will break backwards compatibility). They have suggested, though, a "legacy layer" that would make this transition easier.
On the Willowgarden front, they're working more and more towards a new release - Developer Release 2. This new version will include things like a Data Access layer, configuration classes using XML, framework-wide access to logging/sessions, and "smart archetypes" to make the flow of the code easier.
