Welcome to the Zend Framework 2.0.0 Release!

Master: Build Status


Zend Framework 2.0.0rc5

This is the fifth 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.

23 August 2012


  • Zend\Db
    • Now handles null values properly in execute mode.
    • Added SqlSrv integration tests (prompted by a bug report of issues with establishing a connection).
  • Zend\Form
    • The FormButton helper now allows translation. However, to make this work, it now requires that the label value is set in the element.
    • Fixed an issue with the MultiCheckBox helper to ensure checked/unchecked values are properly populated.
    • The FormCheckbox view helper now requires that the element is a Checkbox element; this is done to ensure the required options are available.
  • Zend\Log
    • The table name constructor option is now optional, allowing you to pass it in a configuration array.
    • Now allows using DateTime with the Db Writer.
  • Zend\Http
    • Added ability to set the SSL capath option.
    • Added a check for the sslcapath being set if sslverifypeer is enabled when first connecting to an SSL-enabled site; an exception is thrown if all conditions are not met.
    • PhpEnvironment\Request object now falls back to '/' for the base path if the SCRIPT_FILENAME server variable is not present (true in PHP 5.4 web server and several others).
  • Zend\I18n
    • Caching translations now works.
  • Zend\Mvc
    • forward() plugin no longer results in double template rendering.
  • Zend\ServiceManager
    • Now ensures that when $allowOverride is enabled that services registered with the same name overwrite properly.
  • Zend\Validator
    • The Uri validator is now listed in the validator plugin manager.
    • The EmailAddress validator now allows setting custom error messages.
  • General fixes
    • Removed all locations of error suppression remaining in the framework.
    • Synced the implementations of Zend\Mvc\Controller\Plugin\Url and Zend\View\Helper\Url.

More than 20 pull requests for a variety of features and bugfixes were handled since RC4, as well as around 30 documentation changes!


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