Zend Framework 1 is not dead; ensure you upgrade!
I'm delighted to announce that Zend Framework 1.12.1 has been released! This release fixes 50 issues which is a great result. I'd like to thank everyone who submitted a patch to ZF1 and to Matthew Weier O'Phinney, Frank Brückner and Mike Willibanks in particular for their work on this release.
There's a few important things to note:
- There's a security fix in 1.12.1. Please read ZF2012-05 if you use Zend_Feed_Rss or Zend_Feed_Atom.
- The minimum PHP version for ZF 1.12.0 and ZF 1.11.12 is 5.2.11 due to security fixes for ZF2012-03.
- Zend_Markup_Parser_Textile has been removed from 1.12.1 as it was significantly broken.
As I said in the title of this post, ZF1 isn't dead: we have committed to supporting it until at least 2014 so we will have more releases as required either due to security issues found or because we've accumulated enough bug fixes in the codebase. With that in mind, please continue to raise issues on the issue tracker if you find any issues in 1.12.1. We'd also appreciate your patches if you can fix any of the issues! I'm on IRC if you want any help (Akrabat in the #zftalk.dev channel on Freenode).
