Today I am extremely happy to introduce the first stable version of Doctrine, 1.0.0. If you've been around for a while, then you know this is a long time coming. We've been hard at work on Doctrine for nearly 3 years and it is finally time to release a version we will support with bug fix releases every month. This 1.0 release will be maintained until March 1st 2010. Now we have 1.0, what is next? Below are some highlights of what to expect in the future of Doctrine.
- Doctrine 2.0 - We've been working in trunk on Doctrine 2.0 for quite sometime now and this is the next really big milestone for the project. As we work on 2.0 we will backport things for intermediate major versions(1.1, 1.2, etc.)
- The Doctrine Company? - We'll be working on a new side to the Doctrine project for organizing commercial support contracts, trainings, seminars, certifications, training material and much more.
- Doctrine supported by symfony 1.2 - We will be contributing to the integration process of Doctrine with sfDoctrinePlugin. 1.2 will be the first symfony release to bundle Doctrine and support it.
- More and Better Documentation - Expect updated documentation as well as some new pieces introduced. Doctrine Book?
