I have been doing bits of work on the new framework, not sure how long till I get something that can be used by all.
Recently I have purchased a couple of new books to aid with the development of features on the framework, I can recommend both of them.
PHP5 Objects, Patterns and Practice is a very good book for explaining programming patterns that can be used within PHP and showing you how to use them. (Amazon)
The Framework is still lacking a proper name, if anyone has any suggestions, please put them on a postcard… actually, a reply to this post will do.
