Yii 2.0.0 GA has been released

I'm glad to inform the PHP developers out there that the popular Yii PHP framework released the GA (generally available) version for the 2.0 branch. Yes, Yii 2.0.0 is finally here and is ready for production use.

This new version is written from the scratch, using all the features introduced in PHP 5.4, so it requires at least PHP 5.4 -I guess that's not a problem for people managing their own servers- to run, so go ahead, download it and play with it. The online documentation is as always very extensive (start with the Definitive Guide for version 2.0 and then go through the API reference). Beware that the code for the 1.1 branch will not run without changes in version 2.0, you will have to read the upgrade section. That's ok by me (breaking the backwards compatibility) if the new version brings many new features.

Kudos to the Yii core (and non-core) developers that helped in creating the new version. Great work guys!

Book review: Yii Application Development Cookbook 2nd edition, by Packt Publishing

Yii Application Development Cookbook, 2nd edition

Packt Publishing was kind enough to send me the e-book version of its new book, Yii Application Development Cookbook, Second edition. The book is written by Alexander Makarov, a core Yii developer.

The book continues from the first edition, published back in 2011 and brings updates to its content, updated for the current version of Yii. The book is a cookbook, which means that is a book that contains a bunch of tips and solutions to common problems when developing a web application that take full advantage of the Yii framework.

Book preview: Yii 1.1 Application Development Cookbook, by Packt Publishing

I've used the Yii PHP framework for more than a year now. It's a relatively new framework for developing web applications, built around the Model-View-Controller pattern, as many frameworks today. Packt Publishing sent me the electronic book "Yii 1.1 Application Development Cookbook" for a review. This is the second book published by Packt regarding Yii. The first one was "Agile Web Application Development with Yii1.1 and PHP5".

Yii 1.1 Application Development Cookbook

The book is written by a Yii core developer, Alexander Makarov, and contains more than 80 solutions to commonly faced problems, hence the title "Cookbook". The fact that is written by one of the core Yii developers surely makes it more than worth reading, you are sure to receive some very good tips with your Yii development.

A sample chapter can be downloaded here.

So, stay tuned for the upcoming full review of the book.
