Software Update: Zend Framework 1.8.4

Zend has put a new version of Zend Framework online with 1.8.4 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. The program also includes search functionality, ajax support, and RSS and atom syndication. The corresponding announcement looks like this:

On the website, we have also made a new addition: roadmaps. These will be used to indicate what new features and changes we plan to make for upcoming minor and major releases (but not maintenance releases). Right now, we are only detailing the upcoming 1.9.0 release, but expect to see more listings in the future. Currently we are not setting dates for the releases as this is often difficult to predict due to the fact that the releases are largely dependent on contributor schedules — and most contributors are, in the end, volunteering their time. We are, however, targeting 1.9.0 for late July of this year.
