Welcome to the first release in the 1.1 series!

This release features a completely rewritten UI! We expect it to resolve many of the performance issues and edge cases observed previously by users; it also simplifies the most-common workflows and puts more information at developers' fingertips than previously. On top of that, it's now fully responsive; you can even use it on your smartphone!

The major features in this release include:

  • Doctrine-Connected REST service creation (if the zfcampus/zf-apigility-doctrine module is present)
  • Database Autodiscovery, which improves on the DB-Connected services by allowing you to choose all tables you wish to expose as services, and to provide basic validations based on column types.
  • Addition of a Packaging service to the Admin API and UI to simplify and automate creation of deployment packages.
  • Apigility now supports multiple authentication adapters for each type supported, and per API authentication (vs per-application, as supported in 1.0).

Other features:

  • API modules can now use PSR-4 directory structures. zf-apigility-admin still creates modules using PSR-0, but will detect PSR-4 directory structures and work correctly with them (including for code generation purposes).
  • A new module, zf-http-cache, is available for integrating should you wish to add HTTP cache features to your API.

The following modules were tagged at 1.1.0, with features as noted below.

We had a number of quite significant contributions to this release. While I'd like to name everyone who contributed, the following individuals stand out in particular:

  • Tom Anderson, who contributed the zf-apigility-doctrine module.
  • Julien Guittard, who did the UI integration (and much of the Admin API work) for the Doctrine-Connected REST resources, developed the DB Autodiscovery feature, and who was tireless in his testing of the UI integrations.
  • Corentin Larose, who contributed zf-http-cache.
  • Steve Rhoades, who contributed the PSR-4 support.
  • Enrico Zimuel, who rewrote the UI for 1.1.
