2. Development Planning

4.1.1 Release Date

Demian proposed a November 20 release date. No objections.

5.0 Roadmap Progress

Demian has been working on two major areas discussed during roadmapping:

Record Driver Hierarchy Refactoring

Demian has finished an initial refactor (see PR list above). He will merge this week unless anyone objects.

ServiceManager v3 Upgrade

Progress is being made on upgrading to the new Zend ServiceManager. This introduces significant backward compatibility breaks, but the new version makes the code significantly easier to understand thanks to some key changes (most notably changing the way the ServiceManager is passed to plugin factories).

Code Style Tools

As noted above, code style checks are now being applied to templates as well as core code. This has caused some recent churn in GitHub, but things should stabilize from here.
