For those that don’t know by now, version 1.5 of the Zend Framework is now out in preview release. Congratulations to everyone who has had apart in getting out this release – from programmers to documentation writers to project managers!
There are a lot of very interesting updates and new features. Some notable ones are the inclusion of Zend_Form, Zend_Layout, OpenID and LDAP adapters for authentication, Technorati web service, as well has handy tweaks Zend_Db_Table such as being able to directly access the select object.
As it’s a preview release the code isn’t intended for production systems just yet, though I hope the time frame for getting it to stable release is short enough so that I can use it soon, but long enough to work out any major kinks. 😉
