Updated ZF2 tutorial for Beta 5
Zend Framework 2, Beta 5 has been released!
This is an important release as we think we’re at the point where the API has stabilised and expect only small BC breaks between Beta5 and the stable release. We also have two new components:
- ZendI18n for localisation and translation
Lots of other changes happened too, so I recommend reading the announcement for all the details.
Note that ZendI18n requires the ext/intl extension. If you are using the stock PHP 5.3 OS X Lion, then I recommend following Bertrand Mansion’s article PHP with Intl and Gettext on OSX Lion, though note that you need the PHP 5.3.10 source code nowadays.
Obviously, I have also updated my Zend Framework 2 tutorial so that it works with Beta 5. The most obvious difference I noticed was that the bootstrapping is nice as is displaying a form in the view.
