You know you've been waiting for it. It's one of the highlights of your week. It's the official kickoff of the weekend. Yes, it's the Framework Roundup! Grab yer hats and hip-waders and let's dive right in.
There's mentions of the mailing list being open to patches/code submissions from anyone, a start on a Zend_Mail class, some discussion on the PHP plugin for Eclipse, wonderings on the UTF-8 support for Lucene (Zend_Search), and quite a bit of talk about authorization and access control modules for the framework.
Be sure to check out this and future roundups for the complete weekly story.
