Welcome to the Zend Framework 3.0 Release!
Zend Framework 3.0.1dev
This is the first maintenance release for the Zend Framework 3 series.
DD MMM YYYY
UPDATES IN 3.0.1
Please see [CHANGELOG.md](CHANGELOG.md).
Zend Framework 3 requires PHP 5.6 or later; we recommend using the latest PHP version whenever possible.
We no longer recommend installing this package directly. The package is a metapackage that aggregates all components (and/or integrations) originally shipped with Zend Framework; in most cases, you will want a subset, and these may be installed separately; see https://docs.zendframework.com/ for a list of available packages and installation instructions for each.
We recommend using either the zend-mvc skeleton application:
$ composer create-project zendframework/skeleton-application project
or the Expressive skeleton application:
$ composer create-project zendframework/zend-expressive-skeleton project
The primary use case for installing the entire framework is when upgrading from a version 2 release.
If you decide you still want to install the entire framework:
$ composer require zendframework/zendframework
A great place to get up-to-speed quickly is the Zend Framework QuickStart.
The QuickStart covers some of the most commonly used components of ZF. Since Zend Framework is designed with a use-at-will architecture and components are loosely coupled, you can select and use only those components that are needed for your project.
For detailed information on migration from v2 to v3, please read our Migration Guide.
This package is a metapackage aggregating the following components:
