The Zend Developer Zone has republished the latest roadmap for the Zend Framework as posted by Andi Gutmans of Zend.
Although not always visible due to the infrequent release of new framework packages, there has been a lot of progress in the past few months. More than 100 community members(!) have joined the effort by singing the CLA, and are contributing via proposals, comments, patches, code contributions or documentation improvements.
Now the Summer is over and everyone is back at work, we feel it's the right time to finish planning the 1.0 release. We believe that in order to make a successfull release and get closure on the various aspects, it makes most sense to break up the framework into a limited number of subject areas and form project teams around these areas instead of components.
The following is a list of such areas and the components we believe we should focus on for 1.0. As you can see, a large amount of the work has already been done, but we now have to focus on getting closure on them and tying up loose ends.
Some of the components they've listed fall under the categories of:
- Web & Web Services
- MVC & related
- Authentication & authorization
- Documentation & translation
There is also a high-level look at what version 0.2 of the framework will contain and a return to the "post often" methodology they had before.
