Zend Framework 1.10.4 Released – Notably Zend_Amf 200-300% faster

On behalf of the Zend Framework community, I’m pleased to announce the immediate availability of Zend Framework 1.10.4, our fourth maintenance release in the 1.10 series. You can download it from our downloads page:

This release includes approximately 50 bugfixes, the majority of which were contributed during our Bug Hunt Days two weeks ago. The fixes contributed help stabilize and improve the 1.10 series.

Three fixes in particular are worth noting:

* ZF-7493: an important serialization improvement in Zend_Amf that has
been benchmarked as providing 200-300% faster serialization of large
datasets.

* ZF-9263: a fix to Zend_Loader::isReadable() to fix a regression found
on Windows platforms. This fix should eliminate most if not all
raised warnings that occurred during resource and plugin loading.

* ZF-9504: a patch was applied to Zend_XmlRpc_Value to make value
generation more efficient. Benchmarks and profiling show enormous
changes on large datasets: in one example, memory usage drops from
>1GB to 20MB, while dropping from execution times of >60s to around
10s.

We’d like to thank everyone who committed time, code, and translations since the 1.10.3 release — the community has been quite productive!
