Zend Framework 1.5 is out

After a long, long work we are finaly ready to give you, the community of the Zend Framework, the next stable release 1.5

We have had a lot of work and also a lot of help. Several new features have been integrated.
To give you a short overview we have
* a new Zend_Form component
* a new Zend_Layout component
* new View and Action helpers for Ajax and other automatic formats like Json
* Support for Lucene 2.1
* LDAP and OpenID Adapters
* new Webservices for Technocrati, Nirvanix and SlideShare

From the I18N core the following things have been added:
* Zend_Translate - directory scanning for addTranslations which enabled module based translations
* Zend_Translate - added cache support
* Zend_Locale - Improved autodetection for *nix servers
* Zend_Date - ISO dates recognise and use timezone settings automatically
and about 20 issues and improvements were fixed and integrated since the last official release.

Of course this is not the end for us… it’s more a beginning.
A overview of my work for Zend Framework in the near ro middle future includes the following tasks:

* Zend_Translate
— allow automatic rerouting
— plural support
— new SQL adapter
* Zend_Locale
— allow overwriting of detected locales by default
* new Zend_Locale_Phone component
* new Zend_File_Transfer component
* codes and translatable exceptions for the complete framework
* force Zend_Db_Schema with Rob

So have fun with it…

CHM Help for Zend Framework

Hy fellows,

after a hard work and several changes I suceeded at last.
When the documentation for ZF is build, from now on also a CHM project file will be build.

This means that in a few days/weeks also a CHM docu could be available for Zend Framework.

The related issue is http://framework.zend.com/issues/browse/ZF-2454. The more of you vote for this the faster CHM docu will be available to public from the ZF homepage.

For all which can not wait just get the latest trunk version from SVN and see for the README file within the documentation for how to create the manual for yourself.

And as last service you can download the CHM help for the latest release 1.5 here for the
german language and the english language.

Greetings
Thomas
I18N Team Leader, Zend Framework
