HHVM Blog:
HHVM The Next Six Months
February 26, 2014 @ 11:09:35

In their latest post the HHVM project (of Facebook) has laid out the next six months ahead for the development and progression on the project. In it they talk some about their "themes" and overall Open Source goals planned for the first part of 2014.

The HHVM team has just wrapped up its planning for the first half of 2014. We'd like to share our plans, providing you a bit of context. We've been making steady progress on HHVM's compatibility with PHP in the wild, but we still have a lot of work ahead of us. We're using unit test pass rates as a proxy for success measurement, but you can help by adding HHVM to your Travis configuration, and reporting bugs and issues through GitHub. We are resourced to help support a couple of major HHVM deployments, which we hope has the side effect of exposing us to "non-Facebook" deployment and maintenance challenges.

We are also going to push for a more open development model, with the goal of increasing our community participation. We'll have more to say on what this means later on. Stay tuned!

They also cover some of the work being done to increase the overall efficiency, reducing CPU time and memory consumption. There's also mention of work being done on a guide to "hacking" in the HHVM, reducing some complexity in the compiler and the conversion to a full HNI extension interface.

The Release Process
October 09, 2012 @ 11:44:29

On the Symfony blog, there's an announcement from Fabien Potencier about the framework's new release process (details here).

To make a long story short, Symfony now manages its releases through a time-based model. If you want to learn more about the Symfony release process, or about the first Symfony Long Term Support release, or about the release date for next version of Symfony, please take a minute to read the new process. You are also going to learn when we will start working on Symfony 3!

The full details also include a timeline they've projected for the upcoming 2.x versions of the framework, right up to the 3.0 release. The goal of the process is to provide transparency and predictability to the Symfony frmework's releases with 6 month releases and and open plan presented to the community up front.

The Bakery:
3.0 a peek into CakePHP's future
July 06, 2012 @ 09:26:12

The Bakery (the CakePHP site) has posted a list of things to come in the 3.0 release of the popular PHP framework.

Since its creation, more than 7 years ago, CakePHP has grown with a life of its own. Its main goal has always been to empower developers with tools that are both easy to learn and use, leverage great libraries requiring low documentation and low dependencies too. We've had several big releases along these years and an ever growing community. Being one of the most popular frameworks out there and probably the first one (!) we have also gotten a lot of criticism from the developer community in general. We have, though, accepted it and learnt from our mistakes to keep building the best PHP framework there is.

Some of the coming improvements include:

  • Drop support for 5.2.x and support 5.4+ only
  • Use traits were possible and makes sense
  • Model layer rewrite
  • Improve Router
  • Improve bootstrapping process to allow more developer control and better performance

You can find more about the current features of the framework on it's main project site.

Lorna Mitchell's Blog:
Thoughts on Running an Open Source Project
March 01, 2012 @ 12:58:46

Lorna Mitchell has posted about some of her experience in being the lead on the open source Joind.in project, broken up into a few different topics including community, roadmaps and transparency.

I spoke in the unconference at PHPUK last week, on running an open source project. I thought I would collect together my thoughts into one place. [...] These are the things that, having been project lead on joind.in for a while, I think are important.

She talks about:

  • The importance of fostering a good community around the project
  • Providing good documentation (README in this case) for people new to the project
  • Having a clear vision of the future of the project (roadmap)
  • Dealing with the code contributed to the project - good and bad
  • Having transparency with the contributors and anyone wanting to find out more about the project

Want to get involved? Check out Joind.in on github for more details and the source for the site.

Symfony Blog:
Symfony2 The Roadmap to Final
July 25, 2011 @ 09:09:00

On the Symfony blog Fabien Potencier has posted about the roadmap to a final release for the Symfony2 version of the popular framework including some of the things that will and will not change after the release.

We are now ready to release Symfony 2.0 final. As we have made some significant changes in the last couple of weeks, we are publishing another release candidate (RC5) today and we will wait for a week before releasing Symfony 2.0 final on Thursday 28th.

The upgrade to Symfony2 is just a few commands away and there's a large list of components that are set and will not be changed moving forward including the DependencyInjection, Finder, Locale, Routing and Validator.

Symfony 2.1 will be the first release with all the components with a public stable API. And for components that already have a public API in 2.0, 2.1 will be the occasion to add even more classes and methods to it.

Matthew Weier OPhinney's Blog:
State of Zend Framework 2.0
June 07, 2010 @ 10:16:00

In a recent post to his blog Matthew Weier O'Phinney shares the state of Zend Framework 2.0 and and the roadmap for the days ahead in the framework's development.

The past few months have kept myself and my team quite busy, as we've turned our attentions from maintenance of the Zend Framework 1.X series to Zend Framework 2.0. I've been fielding questions regularly about ZF2 lately, and felt it was time to talk about the roadmap for ZF2, what we've done so far, and how the community can help.

Included in the roadmap for the upcoming version are things like easing the learning curve for new developers, improving the baseline performance of the framework, an effort to simplify things and to use PHP 5.3 to it's best capabilities.

You can see the full roadmap here.

Giorgio Sironi's Blog:
Zend Framework 2.0
November 13, 2009 @ 09:42:43

In response to the recent release of the roadmap for the 2.0 version of the Zend Framework, Giorgio Sironi has posted some comments of his own and the future of the framework and some of the decisions the Zend Framework teem has made.

I already posted some questions on the wiki, but I would like to expand my thoughts on the architectural changes from a testing and design point of views, that are what interest my readers. Here's a list of the guidelines that have the greatest impact.

The touches on a few topics - the unified constructor, ridding the framework of singletons, implementing a design by contract approach, namespacing, changes in the Zend_Session component and a few others.
