Yii 2

Is Yii 2 officially released now then?

How are people finding it?

What are the differences between Yii 2 and Yii 1?

If I know Yii 1 will it be easy to pick up, what is different about it in terms of the coding etc?

Yep, it’s officially released. That link outlines most of the big changes. The main thing you need to know when moving from Yii 1.1.x is that Yii 2 takes advantage of more modern features in PHP, such as namespaces, so you might need to brush up on your PHP knowledge before diving in.

I’m moving this thread into the dedicated Yii 2.0 forum. You’ll find more answers to your questions there.
