PSR-7 Voting Canceled
April 02, 2015 @ 09:34:40

The voting phase for the PSR-7 proposal (HTTP messaging structure) has been cancelled due to the desire to improve and clarify the spec before approving it.

Since we put PSR-7 up for a vote, a number of issues have arisen that we feel require attention. In most cases these are clarifications that, had they been made during REVIEW, could have been merged without dropping the spec back to DRAFT. Sadly, since PSR-7 is now up for a vote, we cannot make clarifications to the spec. We cannot even make clarifications after the spec is accepted, either, except by way of annotations and errata in the meta document.

We've weighed the risk of leaving the spec as-is against canceling the vote and making the required changes directly to the spec itself. This has been an ongoing discussion since the middle of last week. I had a meeting with Mathew and Paul this morning in which we decided that it would be in the best interest of everyone for us to cancel the vote and make the changes directly.

The call was a tough one, but the discussions around the proposal have worked out a lot of the kinks, just not all of them. As is mentioned in the Google Groups post, the PSR will go back up for a vote in two weeks. PSR-7 outlines a standardized interface for working with HTTP requests and responses, providing interoperability between frameworks and tools at this basic level.

Site News:
A Rebirth
June 14, 2006 @ 07:38:27

Unless you're one of our syndicated visitors, them I'm sure you've noticed a pretty big change around here. We've gone through a pretty major overhaul here at, and not just in our look.

When Zend posted their first preview release of the Zend Framework, we had to admit that we were hooked. As has been mentioned several times by many people all over the PHP (and programming) community, working on a project is the best way to learn a new method/software. Our project was the redevelopment of this site.

So yes, is now up and running on the latest version of the Zend Framework (Preview Release 0.1.3 as of the writing of this post) including some new functionality:

  • You'll notice tagging has been implemented - rather than trying to have predefined categories to fit posts into, we've opted to go with tagging to make the site more flexible and easier to pull only the data you want.
  • Along with this, you can "feed" just about any page on the site now, so if you're only interested in tutorials on a certain subject, add tags to the URL and the "feed this" link will reflect it
  • We've also "gone back to our roots" and are focusing on what we do best around here - provide the latest PHP news to the community. The only think we've really lost in the process were the tutorials we had posted from before. But, if that's what you're looking for, I am more than happy to send them along!

Of course, with new features and new functionality comes some growing pains, so bear with us over these next few days as we work through a few of the issues that pop up. If you come across any or just want to drop me a line to let us know what you think of the new site, feel free to send it along to Thanks to everyone out there for their continued support of the site!
