Software Update: Zend Framework 1.8.2

Zend has put a new version of Zend Framework online with 1.8.2 as the version number. This framework focuses on facilitating the design, writing and maintenance of php applications. To make this possible, various APIs from Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Yahoo and Flickr have been integrated into Zend Framework, among others. Furthermore, the program includes search functionality, support for ajax and RSS and atom syndication. The corresponding announcement looks like this:

Zend Framework 1.8.2 Released

The Zend Framework team is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the 1.8.2 release. This release is the second maintenance release in the 1.8 series. Fixes for this release focus on Zend_Db and autoloading improvements. In all, over 50 issues were closed for release.

With the introduction of Zend_Loader_Autoloader in 1.8.0, a number of issues related to autoloading could finally be closed. All cases where Zend_Loader::loadClass() was hard-coded into the framework were modified to check for class_exists() first, to trigger the autoloader. This should make writing custom adapters and plugins an easier task.
