+### NEW IN ZEND FRAMEWORK 2
+
+New and/or refactored components include:
+
+- EventManager - provides subject/observer, pubsub, aspect-oriented programming,
+ signal slots, and event systems for your applications.
+- ServiceManager - provides an Inversion of Control (IoC) container for managing
+ object life-cycles and dependencies via a configurable and programmable
+ interface.
+- DI - provides a Dependency Injection Container, another form of IoC.
+- MVC - a newly written MVC layer for ZF2, using controllers as services, and
+ wiring everything together using events.
+- ModuleManager - a solution for providing plug-and-play functionality for
+ either MVC applications or any application requiring pluggable 3rd party code.
+ Within ZF2, the ModuleManager provides the MVC with services, and assists in
+ wiring events.
+- Loader - provides new options for autoloading, including standard, performant
+ PSR-0 loading and class-map-based autoloading.
+- Code - provides support for code reflection, static code scanning, and
+ annotation parsing.
+- Config - more performant and more flexible configuration parsing and creation.
+- Escaper - a new component for providing context-specific escaping solutions
+ for HTML, HTML attributes, CSS, JavaScript, and combinations of contexts as
+ well.
+- HTTP - rewritten to provide better header, request, and response abstraction.
+- I18n - a brand new internationalization and localization layer built on top of
+ PHP's ext/intl extension.
+- InputFilter - a new component for providing normalization and validation of
+ sets of data.
+- Form - rewritten from the ground up to properly separate validation, domain
+ modeling, and presentation concerns. Allows binding objects to forms, defining
+ forms and input filters via annotations, and more.
+- Log - rewritten to be more flexible and provide better capabilities
+ surrounding message formats and filtering.
+- Mail - rewritten to separate concerns more cleanly between messages and
+ transports.
+- Session - rewritten to make testing easier, as well as to make it more
+ configurable for end users.
+- Uri - rewritten to provide a cleaner, more object oriented interface.
+
+Many components have been ported from Zend Framework 1, and operate in
+practically identical manners to their 1.X equivalent. Others, such as the
+service components, have been moved to their own repositories to ensure that as
+APIs change, they do not need to wait on the framework to release new versions.
+
+Welcome to a new generation of Zend Framework!
