Zend Framework Goes BSD

Add the Zend Framework as the latest open source project seeing the light and [http://devzone.zend.com/node/view/id/201 swapping to the BSD license]. I find this personally interesting as one of the talks I had submitted for OSCon 2006 was entitled “Web Framework Shootout” which was to compare [http://www.rubyonrails.org/ Ruby on Rails] with [http://www.djangoproject.com/ Python/Dajango] and [http://www.symfony-project.com/ PHP/Symfony]. The PHP part I was a little undecided on, since there really is no defacto web framework in PHP, but I had settled on Symfoney partly due to it’s MIT style license. I had looked at the Zend Framework, but at the time is was pretty much psuedo-code and the license didn’t look to be as friendly. Had the talk been accepted, I would have been very tempted to switch frameworks for the presentation, even though I still like a lot of what Symfony does and think the Zend framework might be a little over-hyped at this point. Since it was shot down this isn’t as much of a concern now [[image /xzilla/templates/default/img/emoticons/smile.png alt=”:-)” style=”display: inline; vertical-align: bottom;” class=”emoticon” /]]
