RELEASE INFORMATION
---------------
Zend Framework 2.0.0beta2

THIS RELEASE IS A DEVELOPMENT RELEASE AND NOT INTENDED FOR PRODUCTION USE.
PLEASE USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.

This is the second in a series of planned beta releases. The beta release
cycle will follow the "gmail" style of betas, whereby new features will
be added in each new release, and BC will not be guaranteed; beta
releases will happen approximately every six weeks.

Once the established milestones have been reached and the featureset has
reached maturity and reasonable stability, we will freeze the API and
prepare for Release Candidate status.

NEW FEATURES IN BETA2
---------------------

- Refactored Mail component
  - Does not change existing Storage API, except:
    - Zend\Mail\MailMessage was moved to Zend\Mail\Storage\MailMessage
    - Zend\Mail\MailPart was moved to Zend\Mail\Storage\MailPart
    - Zend\Mail\Message was moved to Zend\Mail\Storage\Message
    - Zend\Mail\Part was moved to Zend\Mail\Storage\Part
  - Zend\Mail\Mail was renamed to Zend\Mail\Message

    - MIME messages are created by attaching a Zend\Mime\Message object as the
      mail message body
  - Added Zend\Mail\Address and Zend\Mail\AddressList
    - Used to represent single addresses and address collections, particularly
      within mail headers
  - Added Zend\Mail\Header\* and Zend\Mail\Headers
    - Representations of mail headers
  - Zend\Mail\Transport interface defines simply "send(Message $message)"
    - Smtp, File, and Sendmail transports rewritten to consume Message objects,
      and to introduce Options classes.
- Refactored Zend\Cache
  - Completely rewritten component.
  - New API features storage adapters and adapter plugins for implementing cache
    storage and features such as serialization, clearing, and optimizing.
    - Current adapters include filesystem, APC, memcached, and memory.
    - All adapters can describe capabilities.
    - Plugins are implemented as event listeners.
  - New "Pattern" API created to simplify things like method, class, object, and
    output caching.
- MVC updates
  - Zend\Module\Manager was stripped of most functionality; it now simply
    iterates requested modules and triggers events.
  - Former manager functionality such as class loading and instantiation,
    "init()" triggering, configuration gathering, and autoloader seeding were
    moved to event listeners.
  - Post-module loading configuration globbing support was added.
    - Simplifies story of overriding module configuration.
  - Recommended filesystem no longer uses plurals for directory names.
  - Recommendations now include a chdir(__DIR__ . '/../') from the
    public/index.php file, and specifying configuration paths to be relative to
    application directory.

In addition, over 100 bug and feature requests were handled since beta1.

release-2.0.0dev4

Zend Framework 2.0.0dev4
Fourth development snapshot for Zend Framework 2.0.

This snapshot includes:

 - The "Dispatchable" and related interfaces (Zend\Stdlib\Dispatchable,
   MessageDescription, RequestDescription, and ResponseDescription)

 - A fully refactored HTTP component
   - Rewritten URI component, with better and more extensible support
     for an array of different URI schemas, as well as more flexible
     path and parameter decomposition and serialization.

   - Adds HTTP versions of the Stdlib Request and Response interfaces,
     along with full-fledged support for standard HTTP headers.

   - A rewritten HTTP client that consumes Http\Request objects and
     produces Http\Response objects.

   - Two additional HTTP client implementations that provide a
     convenience API around the base HTTP client. One is static, and
     allows for simple one-off requests:

         $response = ClientStatic::get($uri);
         $response = ClientStatic::post(
            $uri,
            array('foo' => 'bar'),
            array('Content-Type' => ClientStatic::ENC_URENCODED)
         );

     The other largely mimics the Zend Framework 1.X HTTP client, and
     proxies functionality to the Request object when appropriate.

 - Updated all docbook sources to DocBook 5 formatting standards.

 - Merging of more than 50 pull requests made by community members,
   ranging from one-liner documentation changes to sweeping fixes to the
   testing repository (including fixing most assertions deprecated in
   PHPUnit 3.5.0).

We will be refactoring all components using the HTTP client in an
upcoming milestone to ensure they continue to work, and will also
post a blog entry and documentation page containing tips.

This snapshot should NOT be used in production, as it is considered
pre-pre alpha quality.

release-2.0.0dev3

Tagged 2.0.0dev3
Contains:
- EventManager
- Initial DI component

release-2.0.0dev2

Zend Framework 2.0.0dev2
Second development milestone for Zend Framework 2.0.

This snapshot concludes two parallel milestones:

 - "Autoloading and Plugin Loading"
 - "Exceptions"

See the milestones page for full details:

    http://framework.zend.com/wiki/display/ZFDEV2/Zend+Framework+2.0+Milestones

The basic functionality added at this point include:

 - Several autoloading strategies, including class maps and PSR-0 style
   autoloading that uses explicit paths instead of the include_path.
 - Tools for generating class maps.
 - Removal of Zend\Loader::loadClass() and Zend\Loader\Autoloader in
   favor of the new solutions
 - Refactoring of the Resource autoloader to conform with the new
   autoloader interface
 - Addition of several plugin class resolution interfaces
 - Addition of an aliasing plugin class resolver
 - Refactoring of PluginLoader to PrefixPathLoader and usage of SplStack
 - Addition of a Broker interface, and a generic implementation,
   PluginBroker
 - Refactoring of all components that used PluginLoader previously to
   use class alias plugin resolvers with plugin brokers
 - Refactoring of Zend\View to make use of a plugin broker and filter
   chain

Several pieces were left to refactor later, including:

 - Zend\Cache (in progress)
 - Zend\Form (likely will replace filters with FilterChain, validators
   with ValidatorChain, and implement a different rendering strategy)
 - View helpers (a "direct" strategy method is no longer necessary using
   a brokering strategy)

This snapshot should NOT be used in production, as it is considered
pre-pre alpha quality.

release-2.0.0dev1

Zend Framework 2.0.0dev1
First development milestone for ZF 2.0.0.

At this time, the ZF Quick Start can be completely implemented in ZF2, and a
reference application containing authentication, ACLs, FlashMessenger, Markup,
and more has been tested. While ZF2 cannot be considered of production quality,
it is in a usable state at this time.

CHANGELOG
- require_once calls stripped
- test suite refactored to remove AllTests.php files, unused test classes/files,
  and refactor conditional tests
- ZF library switched to utilize PHP namespaces instead of vendor prefixes
- Rewritten Zend\Session component
- Added Zend\Stdlib component, with several utility classes, including:
  - FilterChain interface and reference implementation
  - Serializeable versions of SplQueue, SplStack, and SplPriorityQueue
- Added Zend\SignalSlot, to standardize observers throughout framework; utilized
  internally in Zend\Session implementation for validation chains
- Slight refactoring of Zend\Filter and Zend\Validation to separate chain and
  static call implementations
- Renaming of several components (see working/PHPNamespacer-MappedClasses.xml
  for details)
- Moved to Git for version control
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
