Task updates

5 weeks have passed since my last blog.

This does not mean that I am not active.
Normally it’s exactly the other way round… when I have time I am writing blogs, and when I am busy… well, you know ;-)

Still I felt that I should give you an short overview of my actual work. So here we go:

* I18n Webinar
Yes, you read correct. I am writing a webinar for I18n. We wanted to present it at 3rd December, but I did not find time to finish it for this date. It will be delayed about 2-3 weeks.

So I am preparing some I18n webinars… the first will cover Basics of I18n, usage and internals of translation. Its mainly for beginners and people who want to get knowledge on workflow and some internals. Of course it will also cover some examples.

When I am receive good responses on this webinar I will also cover other I18n themes.

* Zend_Filter_Boolean
I almost finished a new filter which converts any input to real boolean. Not just a simple boolean cast. You can configure it which inputs are converted and which not. It even recognises localized input like “yes”/”ja”/”si” and “no”/”nein”/”njet”
I hope it will get approved for ZF 1.10.

* Zend_Validate_Barcode
I completly reworked this validator. It supports now adapters and I added validation for 12 additional barcode types. It will be used by Zend_Barcode, a new component by Mickael. It is already finished and should be approved for ZF 1.10.

* Zend_View_Helper_Currency
I added a new view helper which works with Zend_Currency. It is also finished and waits for approvement.

Of course also several issues have been fixed and some minor improvements have been made.
And 5 new proposals are waiting for acceptance.

I think that’s enough for now. :-)
So have fun with Zend Framwork
