phpDocumentor2 Celebrates their (Stable) Version 2.0 Release
August 09, 2013 @ 12:04:35

As is mentioned in this new post to the project's releases, Mike van Riel and the contributors to the phpDocumentor2 project have released version 2.0 - the first stable release!

We have spent the past two months fixing bugs, adding tests and writing a brand new template. With this release it is now easier than ever to generate your documentation. And as a special party gift we bring you a brand new template, called Clean. Can't wait to see what it looks like? Then come over and see the demo.

He talks about some of the things yet to come for phpDocumentor including more features based on the PHPDoc standard, improving performance and making the existing systems (and templates) more robust and usable. You can find the full roadmap here. phpDocumentor is one of the most widely used PHP-based tools for generating automated documentation from docblocks already in your code.

Symfony Blog:
Upgrading your Symfony Projects the easy Way
June 12, 2013 @ 10:57:49

On the Symfony blog today there's a new post from Fabien Potencier talking about the upgrade path to keep your Symfony projects up to date. He points out that in the pre-Composer days it was more difficult, but thanks to this handy tool, it's a much easier task.

In the old Symfony 2.0.x days, at a time when Composer did not exist, upgrading a project from one minor version of Symfony to the next one was not that easy. [...] Fast forward to the Composer world. Composer is used by Symfony since version 2.1, but as we were the very first adopter, and because Composer and the Symfony ecosystem were not stable yet, it was still awkward. [...] Fast forward to Symfony 2.3. As of Symfony 2.3, the minimum stability level has been raised to stable.

This stability means that all of the libraries and tools that Symfony 2.3 depends on are in their "stable" state as well. Included in the post are the commands to update your Symfony install and what it looks like when the update from 2.3.0 to 2.3.1 happens. He finishes off the post with a few recommendations about how to use Composer to keep things stable (use "stable", define version constraints and run the update without fear of breakage).

Community News:
Laravel 4 Stable Released
May 31, 2013 @ 10:51:46

The long-awaited version 4 of the Laravel Framework has finally been released (and the site has gotten a facelift as well):

Laravel is a web application framework with expressive, elegant syntax. We believe development must be an enjoyable, creative experience to be truly fulfilling. Laravel attempts to take the pain out of development by easing common tasks used in the majority of web projects, such as authentication, routing, sessions, and caching.

Laravel aims to make the development process a pleasing one for the developer without sacrificing application functionality. Happy developers make the best code.

You can find lots of information about the framework and its functionality on the main project site including a forums area with lots of discussion around not only v4 but still v3 for those using it. You can also find some good discussion about the release itself in this thread over on Reddit.

Aura First 1.0.0 Stable Library Releases!
November 30, 2012 @ 10:34:11

As Paul Jones mentions in this new post to his site, the Aura Framework project has just released it's 1.0 stable version of all of its packages. The Aura project provides independent library packages for PHP 5.4+. These packages can be used alone, in concert with each other, or combined into a full-stack framework of their own.

The Aura Project for PHP 5.4 is happy to announce its first release of 1.0.0 stable library packages. [...] In addition, we have initial beta releases of four new libarary packages. [...] While the above packages are completely independent of each other, Aura also has a Framework package that binds them all together.

Packages included in the v1.0 of the framework include Aura.Cli, Aura.Http and Aura.Signal. Beta packages are things like Aura.Filter and Aura.Intl.

You can find out more about the project from its site over on github.

Zend Framework 2.0.0 STABLE Released!
September 06, 2012 @ 08:37:36

The Zend Framework is proud to announce the first stable release of the long awaited Zend Framework v2 codebase!

The Zend Framework community is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Zend Framework 2.0.0 STABLE! [...] Zend Framework 2 has been years in the making. Version 1.0.0 was released in July 2007 -- over 5 years ago! Since then, we've incrementally added features, building on the solid base we'd created.

[...] It's not perfect. No software project is. But I think it's qualitatively better. We finally achieved a dream that was conceived in the 0.X days of Zend Framework, to be able to create and consume standalone modules of MVC code.

They mention the work of a few different individuals and some of the newer pieces of functionality in this version like the ModuleManager and the dependency injection container, ZendDi. They already have three things posted to help you get started with this latest release: the latest download, a skeleton application and the ability to try out ZF2 on phpcloud.

Mayflower Blog:
PHP_CodeBrowser goes stable
December 15, 2010 @ 10:54:22

According to this new post on the Mayflower blog, the PHP_CodeBrowser PEAR package has finally reached a stable state.

We already wrote about CodeBrowser 0.9 in August and after fixing a few minor bugs the Mayflower Open Source Labs Team is very happy to present PHP_CodeBrowser 1.0.0.

The PHP_CodeBrowser package allows quality assurance tools (like PHPUnit) to create enhanced output including syntax highlighting and colored error sections. It comes with some basic template, CSS, Javascript and image files as well as a plugin system to allow for custom handling of certain error types. You can install it from the pear.phpunit.de PEAR channel or you can check out the source on github.

Phil Sturgeon's Blog:
CodeIgniter 2.0 is stable (enough)
October 19, 2010 @ 11:03:02

According to this post on Phil Sturgeon's blog (and the EllisLab folks) the current version of CodeIgniter 2.0 living in their Bitbucket repository is stable and has been for a while - despite some major changes.

CodeIgniter 2.0 is a major release, which means this has been a perfect chance for EllisLab to make major changes that effect compatibility. One example of a major change is that our Models now need to extend CI_Model instead of Model. That is an acceptable change for a major release, but think of the outcry if that was done after EllisLab had tagged v2.0.

He talks mentions the bugs currently in the tracker (quite a few) and how, despite those, the framework is still in a good, stable state. He also notes that EllisLab has to maintain both ExpressionEngine and MojoMotor on top of the framework so smaller patches and related functionality has just stemmed from that.

My advice to you, download the latest copy and have a play. If your application worked in v1.7.2 it will work in v2.0 and the upgrade is pretty simple.

NerdMom Blog:
Kohana 3 & CodeIgniter 2
August 30, 2010 @ 14:46:17

On the NerdMom blog there's a recent post from Jen about her experiences in developing in both the CodeIgniter 2 framework and Kohana 3 frameworks (upcoming versions of both).

For the last month or so I've been developing an app side-by-side with Kohana 3 and CodeIgniter 2 to see which framework fits my programming style better. Nothing terribly fancy; just a simple CMS. [...] In the end it comes down to framework stability for me. And in this case, CI wins, hands down. Don't get me wrong; Kohana is beautifully written and introduced me to a prime example of clean, well commented code.

She talks about some of what she was needing out of a framework and what ultimately lead her to pick CodeIgniter 2 as the tool for her and her development. She notes that, while Kohana is nicely written, they've had some consistency issues with backwards compatibility that have caused issues. She also mentions some of the unstable code that was added just to micro-optimize things when it wasn't needed.

Solar Blog:
Solar 1.0.0 Stable Released
March 15, 2010 @ 10:04:23

As mentioned on Solar blog and a few other places on the web, the stable 1.0.0 version of the Solar PHP framework has been released, marking a significant milestone in the framework's development.

Yesterday, I announced the release of the 1.0.0 stable version of the Solar Framework for PHP on our mailing list. (I tagged the release four days ago on Monday, but wanted to time the announcement to go along with my Solar presentation at ConFoo.)

The Changelog for the release can be found here and some of the latest updates include improved CSRF features, named actions and optimized queries.

This stable release is the culmination of about five years of development effort, with important contributions from several others in the PHP community. My many thanks to everyone who helped make this release, and all the previous releases, better than I could have made it on my own.
