As you may (or may not, if you're a feed reader) have noticed, a few things have just changed around here. PHPDeveloper.org has made the move away from the Zend Framework over to the Solar Framework, and to answer the question of why - really it was just to try something new. We'd been using the Zend Framework since around back when it first hit the scene and felt like it was time for a change.
Paul Jones, Rodrigo Moraes, Antti Holvikari and the crew have done a fine job in producing a framework that's not only easy to use but makes building powerful web applications nice and easy. You can check out more about the framework on its site, SolarPHP.com.
That said, I'm sure there'll be a few growing pains as this new version of the site gets settled in, so bear with us. If you happen to spot something that might be an issue or just an opinion you want to share, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know.
