Paul Jones:
PSR-4 "Autoloader" Has Passed
December 04, 2013 @ 10:37:51

As Paul Jones mentions in his latest post, one of the latest proposals to the PHP-FIG (Framework Interoperability Group) has officially passed, PSR-4, providing a more strict standard for autoloading than the widely used PSR-0.

Counting from the date of that first formal proposal, it has taken exactly 8 months of discussions, one botched vote, one rescinded vote, an entirely new FIG workflow, and four or five rewrites to get PSR-4 passed. Maybe 8 months doesn't sound so long when you look back on it, but while you're in the middle of it, it's interminable.

Paul talks about some of the differences between it and PSR-0, making for "shallower" and more concise directory structures for packages. He also points to some of the packages from the Aura framework as examples of its implementation.
