The latest version of the Zend Framework has been released today (as mentioned by the Zend Developer Zone) - ZF 1.0.0 Release Candidate 2:
This is the home stretch toward 1.0! Everyone has worked very hard for many months, and we are very close to finishing what we set out to do with Zend Framework 1.0. This Release Candidate is intended to show the complete set of features Zend Framework 1.0 has. Following the final 1.0 release, Zend Framework will continue to grow and improve, but there will be a great emphasis on maintaining backward-compatibility. That has been the mission of Zend Framework from the beginning, to provide a professional web framework with quality and stability.
Additions in this new release include updates to Zend_Gdata, the addition of the Zend_Service_StrikeIron web service client, seperate download packages (framework+docs versus just framework) and an update to the Zend_Db component. Check out the Changelog for the complete list of updates and fixes.
