Zend Released the Zend Framework 2.2
The developers behind the Zend PHP web framework have announced that version 2.2.0 is now stable. The team said that the focus of the release has been on usability and consistency in terms of the creation and configuration of services such as logs, database connections and forms.
Most of these services now include “abstract factories” that are either registered by default or can be added to an application’s configuration. The service manager uses abstract factories to handle multiple services that follow the same instantiation pattern, but which have different names. The developers have also implemented new plugin manager instances,Zend\Stdlib\Hydrator\HydratorPluginManager andZend\InputFilter\InputFilterPluginManager. The first can be used for retrieving hydrator instances and, for example, allows custom hydrators to be used across all form instances, while the second makes it possible to retrieve input filters. This allows input filters to be reused and ensures that all input instances are provided with custom validators and/or filters. The developers have also added the new translators and sessions factories. (more…)
