Just a quick note for all of the Zend Framework fans out there waiting impatiently for a new updated package - your wait might be just about over!
According to a note from Andi Gutmans on the framework mailing list:
We are working hard to get a new tarball rolled, bug DB up, etc. We should be getting this out the door this coming week. In the meanwhile, feel free to grab the latest version from SVN http://framework.zend.com/download/subversion. Also Mike has updated the manual just recently including some of the language translations contributed by the community (Thanks!).
The message was posted yesterday, so, if all goes well, something should be posted by the end of this week. There's been tons of work going on behind the scenes on the Framework by all sorts of talented people, and if you'd like to check out a bit of it, take a look at the mailing list archives for the project.
