The eZ Components team just released the first alpha releases of the MvcTools components set. The MvcTools implement functionality that allows you to set up a framework in a very simple way. The MvcTools is show cased in both an introductory video and in "TheWire" -- a corporate twitter client that's available in the eZ Components SVN repository.

Besides the new MvcTools components, we also released new versions of the Authentication, Configuration, Feed and Mail components that address minor bugs in those components.

New versions can be installed through the PEAR installer with:

pear upgrade ezc/Authentication
pear upgrade ezc/Configuration
pear upgrade ezc/Feed
pear upgrade ezc/Mail

The alpha versions can be installed by running the following commands:

pear upgrade ezc/MvcTools-alpha ezc/MvcMailTiein-alpha
pear upgrade ezc/MvcFeedTiein-alpha ezc/MvcTemplateTien-alpha

The alpha releases will become part of 2008.2alpha1, which we hope to release early November. The ChangeLog for the bug fix releases follows:


1.2.1 - Monday 06 October 2008

  • Avoid a notice caused by opening a Typekey keys file from an unreachable host.


1.5.2 - Monday 06 October 2008

  • Fixed an issue in ezcBaseFile::removeRecursive, where the parent directory could not be written to. We now make sure nothing is deleted until we're sure everything can be deleted.


1.3.1 - Monday 06 October 2008

  • Implemented issue #12523: Offer hasConfigFile() in ezcConfigurationManager.
  • Fixed bug #13458: Problems with fetching out-of-range integers in configuration files.


1.1.1 - Monday 06 October 2008

  • Fixed issue #13570: Use internal libxml error handling.


1.5.2 - Monday 06 October 2008

  • Fixed an issue that caused the part boundaries from e-mail messages not being correctly set in the parsed mail structure. Instead an auto-generated one was used.
  • Fixed issue #13553: Documented how to access the raw value of headers.
  • Implemented feature feature #13538: Added possibility to set a custom message in mail multiparts for e-mail clients missing MIME support.
