So, the question simply boils down to one simple question: Is Yii slowly dying? It seems to me that it lacks the resources to boost its development rate.
Honestly speaking, I share the same worry with @GoofyX, although I’ve been and will be a convinced fan of Yii framework.
I never question the excellent knowledge and skills of the core team. But what about the time they can spend on Yii 3? It looks to me a little shorter than expected. It’s no one’s fault, of course, but it can really matter. I think we should do something in this respect.
Personally I’m fairly content with the current version of Yii 2 and I can patiently wait for Yii 3 to be finally released. It is mainly because I’m not in the midst of the fast moving current trends of web application development. Yeah, I confess that I’m a bit old fashioned
Anyway, it’s great to hear the voices of you, the core team members and the fellow people who share the love of this straightforward solid practical “healthy” (© @Coksnuss) framework.
