Greg Beaver has a new post today on his blog concerning the interesting crossing paths of the phpDocumentor project and PEAR.
Yesterday and today I released phpDocumentor 1.3.0RC6. Aside from a number of exciting features and many important bug fixes, including some bugs opened over 2 years ago (!) this release is unique in another way: in addition to working as a PEAR-installable package, it also works as an extracted file.
He notes that this improvement not only makes installing the phpDocumentor package more flexible, but it also makes it a snap to get up and running. Those used to the PEAR package system will be happy to know it's a simple "pear " command away. It makes full use of the package.xml 2.0 features to really make the install nice and clean.
