Zend have announced that they are working (with some industry players) in developing a standard PHP application framework.
Hopefully this will cement PHP use as a serious development language, I believe more often than not developers are put off by poor development practices when using PHP.
With PHP 5.0 and a Standard development framework (backed by industry players) then it is sure to add more clout to a already very popular programming language. And yes I say programming language NOT scripting language.
If Microsoft own .Net and SUN own Java then I wonder who will step in and fund the majority towards a credible PHP development framework? Project participants currently include: IBM, Oracle, MySQL and Intel.
