Well, with a long face and heavy heart I have decided to no longer support the dFramewerk; no longer actively develop it and no longer promote it. I have closed the website and will be letting it the domain expire so you can snap that up nice and easy at the cost of a normal domain name.
After years of using the dFramewerk myself I have learned many things about PHP (and still continually learn) and I have strayed into using the Zend Framework for my projects, this has worked out very well for me and my clientele and I feel comfortable enough with it now to stop active development of the dFramewerk as the combination of both the maintenance and updates takes up as much of my time as the actual software development!
The evolution of the framework itself has been slowing down over the last 18 months, to a stand still in-fact but I still had support requests and bugs to fix for the general public, now I know many thousands of people have downloaded and implemented the framework and as with any open source software the risk was that support and development may stop at any time but it is; at the end of the day my choice to discontinue the development of the project and offer my greatest apologies for all that I am disappointing.
This decision didn’t come lightly but it is in the best interest for my clients that I use a more standardised framework and a framework I can rapidly develop with.
