Name Zend Framework strongly suggests that this is sponsored by Zend.
Meaning they have the right for key decisions here, like what the shape of
ZF will be.
False: the ZF community has always had the last word in basically every
larger BC break or new feature.
Zend is sponsoring Enrico’s and Matthew’s work, but that doesn’t come with
control over what lands in the repositories, as we all (ZF community) keep
an eye on it.
The discussion in this thread is an example of it: I am a proponent of the
self:: approach, and others are not, and it is open for decision to go
And hell yes:: PHP3 is what I really liked. It wasnt modern (for todays
standards), but it was stable = without any zend* things packed
If you liked PHP3, you can still deploy PHP3: why are you even involved in
a discussion on a board that talks about a “modern” set of libraries?
Its not my fault that Zends represtatives hired unskilled developers who
produces crap. Yes - with each PHP release (starting from 4), each new
version is more crappy than previous.
I suggest you wash your eyes (and mouth): try writing something stable,
fast, secure and matching business requirements with PHP3 nowadays, and
good luck with passing any pentesting or peer review.
Also, I’m fairly sure that you confuse ZendFramework (Community project)
with the Zend Engine (implementation detail of PHP core), and that you have
little to no clue of what you are referring to.
