"Zend Framework paved the way for PHP in the Enterprise; Laminas is going to take it even further and push it into async, serverless, and microservices. This is an exciting new era for PHP users!"

Matthew Weier O'Phinney, Development Lead for the Laminas Project, Zend by Perforce

What Is the Laminas Project?

Laminas is the community supported, open source continuation of Zend Framework, managed by the Linux Foundation. Developers use Laminas to accelerate and improve PHP development.

What Does Laminas Include?

The Laminas PHP framework includes all of the components originally delivered by Zend Framework, although they have new names:

  • PHP MVC framework is now called Components and MVC.
  • Apigility subproject is now called API Tools.
  • Expressive subproject is now called Mezzio.

What Does Laminas Not Include?

Because it is now owned by the Linux Foundation, the Laminas PHP framework only comes with free support from the community. However, you can get enterprise support from Zend.
