The Zend Framework blog has posted an announcement about the release of the latest Release Candidate for the next major step for their Expressive framework: Version 3.0.0RC1.
We've been working diligently the past three weeks to finalize API changes and new features for the Expressive 3.0 release, and are pleased to announce immediate availability of our first release candidate, 3.0.0rc1!
Why RC and not beta? [...] We feel at this point that we've identified and implemented all desired changes both in terms of API as well as features, and announced a feature freeze yesterday. This puts us in a status more analogous to release candidates than beta (where features could still be added).
The post then walks you through this new version and shows you how to get a new Expressive v3.0.0RC1 application set up or migrate an existing application to the new version. It then talks about some of the differences in the code and the ecosystem around the framrwork and finishes up with the roadmap and a look ahead.
