The Zend Framework community is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Zend Framework 2.0.0beta3. Packages and installation instructions are available at: http://packages.zendframework.com/ [...] Featured components and functionality of 2.0.0beta3 include:sourceRefactored Config component All configuration readers have been moved under the Zend\Config\Reader namespace A Zend\Config\Factory has been added to simplify retrieving a config object from a config file Supported configuration formats now support importing additional configuration files All constant processing has been moved to a Zend\Config\Processor namespace, and expanded to be more powerful Work was provided by Ben Scholzen, Artur Bodera, Enrico Zimuel, and Evan CouryNew View layer New subcomponents include Zend\View\Model, Zend\View\Resolver, Zend\View\Renderer, and Zend\View\Strategy The old Zend_View class has been moved to Zend\View\Renderer\PhpRenderer, and rewritten to move most of its responsibilities into collaborators, greatly simplifying its design while simultaneously giving it more capabilities. A new class, Zend\View\View, allows selecting rendering strategies on a per-template basis, based on arbitrary criteria, and optionally injecting rendering results into a Response object MVC integration streamlines common use cases, including View Model creation and injection, 404 and error page creation, and more. Work was provided by Matthew Weier O'Phinney, with copious feedback from Rob Allen.
