I know the long class thing is a weak argument, I just don't like it (my class names, if placed according to the standard, can easily round up to 30 characters - not the best thing to look at especially when the class is a proxy one)
... or just move to Laravel or somethingZF1 and ZF2 might as well be completely different frameworks, as everything will need to be rewritten. ZF1 & ZF2 *can* coexist at the same time though... so maybe would be something like new stuff build on ZF2 and old stuff slowly migrated as needed.
Migration to XF2 for addons, or? XF is only loosely reliant on ZF1, not sure how hard it would be just to turn the core into namespaced ZF2-like code.If a migration to XF2 happens, I suspect it will be a slow migration.

I would say 1.5 would be more appropriate. First digit version bump IMO should only be reserved for major platform upgrades (like this one)1.2 was practically 2.0 with the amount of features it has in it.
I hope 1.3 will be as packed as 1.2 is. As far as the ZF2 is concerned: I hope KAM will cross that bridge when the time comes. I really doubt an incremental rewrite is a good idea. That tends to get messy.
You should because not everyone is as experienced and knowledgeable as you. Please break it down for us who don't know.

This may also help if you have a little knowledge of how the back-end works: http://spabby.github.io/zf2-for-zf1-users-part-1/Architecture
ZF1 is based on MVC , ZF2 is based on MOVE. Huge difference. MOVE = Model Operations Views Events , MVC = Models Views Controllers. More here. Zend Framework 2 uses 100% object-oriented code and utilises most of the new features of PHP 5.3, namely namespaces, late static binding, lambda functions and closures. source
Size of installation
The latest ZF1 file is approx 30Mb and ZF2 is approx 2.5Mb (Zipped).
ZF1 is core set of libraries and very loosely coupled architecture (with respect to its competitor/player - CakePHP). ZF1 does not require much of 'gems' (as in ruby) but, can do better with plugins. ZF2 requires you to know about composer - phar and soon it may out-match any other framework. New concept : Dependency Injection for Zend fans.
Certification is available only for ZF1, however, there are rumours about their talks for ZF2 certs though training material is available online.
classname in ZF1 was Zend_Db_Table for class in Zend/Db/Table.php whereas in ZF2, it is class My\Auth\Adapter . Enough said.
ZF1 was backed by Zend Technologies (and few other, unnamed). ZF2 has remarkable supporters including Google and Microsoft. Source here
There is no point having an off topic forum either. Lets lock this forum down so it is strictly business and related to xenForo and the current version out. Only authorized created threads by moderators on future versions are allowed.The first rule of XenForo is don't talk about XenForo.
The second rule is to refer to rule 1.
There's no point in speculating about future versions
I can, as long as the community is still active and updating. Which I don't see that being a problem at all.Im still in the process of moving over my VB sites to XF 1.2. I cant stomach a XF re-write in the next year where current addons wont function without major re-work.
