Welcome to the Zend Framework 2.0.0 Release!

Master: Build Status


Zend Framework 2.0.0rc3

This is the third release candidate for 2.0.0. We will be releasing RCs on a weekly basis until we feel all critical issues are addressed. At this time, we anticipate few API changes before the stable release, and recommend testing your production applications against it.

09 August 2012


  • Zend\Http

    • Socket client: Updated to enable verify_peer by default, to prevent potential Man-In-The-Middle attacks.
  • Zend\EventManager\SharedEventManager

    • SharedEventManager::attach now returns a callbackhandler for detaching, inline with what EventManager::attach does.
  • Zend\Form\Annotation

    • Form annotation builder - if isRequired is true, automatically add required attribute.
  • Zend\Mvc\Controller

    • Removed duplication between AbstractActionController and AbstractRestfullController. The AbstractController has the shared functions of both and allows to reuse it without the unneeded specific functions from AbstractActionController.
  • Zend\Feed

    • Added trim() to XML input when importing an XML or HTML string. This prevent a few isolated problems with the feeds of some applications having illegal preceeding space in an XML feed.
  • PSR-2 compatible

    • We refactored some of the components in order to be PSR-2 compatible. We will continue to check for PSR-2 compatibility in the next RC.
  • Removed the doc2rst scripts

    • We removed the scripts bin/doc2rst.php, bin/doc2rst.xsl, and bin/ZendBin for the conversion from DocBook to reStructuredText (all the doc files have been converted).

Around 65 pull requests for a variety of features and bugfixes were handled since RC2!


Zend Framework 2 requires PHP 5.3.3 or later; we recommend using the latest PHP version whenever possible.
