I'm not so sure Zend is going to ask anything for it.
This collection of übergeeks
have volunteerd. So it's not likely to become a commercial product.
I'm thinking they'll GPL it, hoping this framework will become very popular, php5 piggyback riding off it's popularity to finally gain dominance over php4.
Ok, not GPL but free none the less:
Does it say anywhere I can't copy and modify parts of it?
Probably not, I won't bother reading any of it then.
Kidding, mods please don't kill me...
It would seem class name/location conventions and uri processing aren't the only things my custom framework in devleopment has in common with ZF. The caching systems are also very similar. Except mine supports chunked caching, a feature I couldn't spot in ZF, and ZF's caching engine has memcache support when available.
Also I noticed some logic where objects were being serialized for caching? What is that about? I'ts not output caching, I wonder in what situations that could be usefull..
I'm not really familiar with memcache, does it also allow for managing output caching in memory, or is it purely a resultset caching thing?
