In a couple of days, the Zend Framework project reaches the most important milestone in its development. On Thursday March 15, 9:00pm PDT, we will declare a code-freeze for the first Beta Release of Zend Framework. After a day or so of integration testing, we will release Zend Framework 0.9.0 Beta.
The main difference between this release and some of the previous is that, with the release of this new beta version, the Zend Framework is (functionally) ready to be declared a stable 1.0 status. The stable release is currently scheduled to be released at the end of March 2007.
