Seagull 0.5.5 Released

Posted on 31 January 2006 by Demian Turner

We released development version 0.5.5 of the Seagull framework last week – many thanks for all the devs who contributed to this release, particularly all the regulars on #seagull.

0.5.5 was massive compared to previous releases, 119 tickets dealt with compared with 63 from 0.5.4, and that’s just the documented stuff. Click around for details.

The main new features in no particular order are:

An article Lukas recently wrote reviewing several frameworks stuck me as particularly insightful, if you install Seagull as a PEAR package the 5 conditions he outlines are all satisfied. Thanks to bugs in PEAR being ironed out with the 1.4.6 release subpackage dependencies now work as you’d expect. Currently Seagull is packaged as the core framework with the 3 default modules listed as required subpackages, so doing a simple

$ pear channel-discover
$ pear install phpkitchen/seagull

is all you’re need to get the framework fully up and running, thankfully more user-friendly than some recently published examples.

Last Chance for PHP Conference UK Early Bird Tickets

Posted on 31 January 2006 by Demian Turner

There are only a few seats left for London’s first PHP Conference happening Feb 10th, 2006. And if you buy before Feb 3rd, 2006 it will only cost you £50, or €73, after that prices go up to £75. So if you’re a PHP developer in the UK, or anywhere in Europe for that matter, reserve this weekend and treat yourself to a great event.

Also, we’ve had some last minute luck and will now be able to offer wifi access to delegates – "you mean you were thinking of not offering it" I can hear you say, it’s a long story 🙂

This will be the first PHP Conference to be held in the UK and is the result of a year’s planning and preparation by PHP-London’s conference team.  We were lucky enough to get an excellent lineup of speakers, with talks ranging from ezComponents, AJAX, pico container – more info to come.
