From time to time it\’s time to talk together.

I thought that you might want to hear what happend within the last 4 months.
So I will give you the actual state of my work.

Since several months I focus completly on ZF2 development.
This means on the other hand that all new features and changes are instantly available for the next major release and must not be reworked.
When you want to follow me simply watch my github repository:

Actually I worked on fixing several small issues. Those are for example:

I added handling for floats within the Null filter. This has been missing in past.
Zend_Filter_Alnum/Alpha and EmailAdress had public variables. This has changed in favor of accessor methods to provide consistency to the other filters.

Now Zend_Translator can be used in phar libraries.
And auto-routing has been added. The users browser settings are used as routing information.

GreaterThan and LowerThan can now handle equal numbers.
IP can now handle hex, octal and binary noted IP adresses.

Behind the scene I am working on V2. It’s a complete rewrite of all locale classes.

Those are just a few examples.
In sum there are more than 80 issues which have been worked on and fixed since april.

Still much work to do.
Feel free to contact me directly when you think that an issue is missing or should be done first or also when you want to me to write about something in detail in my blog.
