After more months of breaks, changes, additions, and refactoring, I'm (finallly) at the point where I'm ready to call the Solar framework for PHP 5 feature-complete. The first of this feature-complete series is the new Solar-1.0.0alpha1 release as of Sunday, 11 Nov, 2007. We now have at least 80% of everything you would need to build web-based and cli-based applications. This is a big milestone for the project.
Some of the "highlights" of this new release he mentions include:
- The new Solar_Controller_Console and Solar_Controller_Command classes are analagous to front and page controllers, respectively, for the command line.
- The new Solar_Filter class combines validating and sanitizing.
- We've moved a lot of the core functions of the Solar arch-class to their own static classes
- Lots of changes in the Solar_Sql package related to database portability
