Für alle die es nicht per E-Mail bekommen haben...


The Zend Framework team is happy to announce the immediate availability of Zend Framework 1.8.1, the first maintenance release in the 1.8 series. You can get it via our downloads page:


Use the CDN link for fast downloads, or scroll down the page for direct downloads of the 1.8.1 packages from the ZF servers.

1.8.0 was released only 13 days ago, but we already have logged 68 resolved issues in that timeframe! We appreciate everyone who has taken the time to log bugs, documentation issues -- even issues with the Quick Start! -- as well as those who have given generously of their time to help resolve them.

One important bugfix that should be noted is that a glitch in packaging of 1.8.0 meant that the Dojo version shipped with it was from the Dojo

1.2 branch -- and not the 1.3 branch as reported in the changelogs. The packaging script has been corrected, and the source build within the full ZF distribution now correclty includes Dojo 1.3.

Other prominent changes include:

* Zend_Loader::registerAutoload() now proxies to

Zend_Loader_Autoloader, and marks the instance as a fallback

autoloader. This will ensure equivalent functionality, and reduces

the number of deprecation notices emitted to one.

* Many bugfixes and improvements to Zend_Application.

* Addition of module generation capabilities to Zend_Tool

* Addition of strong object typing capabilities to Zend_Amf

* Many more manual translations!

Again, many thanks to all contributors to this release!
