This preview release is the result of a great effort from our Zend Framework community developers to create advanced PHP classes for internationalizing applications. The Zend_Locale, Zend_Date, Zend_Measure, and Zend_Translate classes enable you to bring your PHP project to a global audience by handling text, dates, and messages with best-practices methods, using an easy objected-oriented interface that is characteristic of Zend Framework components.
Updates in this new release include:
- New translation-management component with gettext support
- Comprehensive class for working with measurements and conversions
- New class for managing memory usage in PHP applications
- Many other improvements in current components such as MVC, Session, Gdata, HTTP Client, Search, XmlRpc, and others
