Plans for Zend Framework 3

Matthew Weier O’Phinney, the Zend Framework (ZF) Project Leader, announced the plans for the upcoming Zend Framework 3. Some of the things that are in the pipeline for Zend Framework 3 are:

  • Separating components into individual, versioned projects. This enables broader re-use and higher velocity of innovation.
  • Strong emphasis on HTTP messages, with Matthew leading the PSR-7 specification.
  • Updating our existing full-stack MVC framework to depend on the newly independent components for better reuse and simplicity. ZF2 MVC applications will have a documented upgrade path to ZF3 requiring minimal changes.
  • Embracing middleware runtime patterns as a lighter weight alternative to the enterprise MVC framework stack.
  • Enabling Apigility to work as a middleware stack, for better performance and simplicity, with the same streamlined, powerful user experience.
  • Optimizing for PHP 7, but supporting PHP 5.5 onwards.

In addition Andi Gutmans said: “The community has been looking for clear direction and we are giving it. “.

Stay tuned for more details and examples on the future Zend Framework 3.

    1. Hi Brad, an actual update should result in Learn ZF2++ or Learn ZF3 book and we are thinking about it. Which are the areas from ZF3 that would be most interesting to you?
