In his keynote this morning Andi Gutmans announced some other big news (see here for the other announcement) at the php|tek conference currently being held in Chicago - that Zend and the Dojo framework were teaming up to provide an "out-of-the-box" Ajax solution included with the Zend Framework.
Several members of the community have already blogged about it including:
- Matthew Weier O'Phinney
- Andi himself
- Wolfram Kriesing
- this FAQ from the Zend Developer Zone detailing the partnership
So far, all of the comments have been good and the partnership has been well received. Matthew included in hist post a few of the places they're already planning on "ajaxing" in the Zend Framework (including the forms and the JSON-RPC server).
