Zend Framework Manual Updated
For those of you who are interested in browsing the Zend Framework manual online, I’ve made some improvements to the interface that will make it more enjoyable: http://framework.zend.com/manual/
There’s no question that the excellent manual at php.net is a big reason that PHP is so easy to use. We recognize this and documentation has been very important to the Zend Framework project from the first day. We aim to always have the highest quality documentation possible, and to make it as accessible as possible by publishing it in multiple formats.
The distribution currently ships with the documentation in HTML for offline viewing. In the near future, we plan to publish a PDF version as well. There will be many future updates to the website and we plan to also add search capabilities (powered by Zend_Search, of course).
Documentation is currently available only in English, although already some users have volunteered translations of parts of the manual. After we reach the 1.0 release and the docs stabilize, we’ll begin building our documentation team to do as many localizations as possible. If you’d like to help the Zend Framework succeed in your home country, helping with translations will be a great way to contribute to our effort in the near future.
