Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. George Santayana
The history of Kohana is told backwards, because we are looking forward.
Kohana version 2.0 is released. PHP5 based. New fully OOP framework, no legacy code, includes modules, built on the cascading resources concept.
September - October 2007
We get a BDFL, decision to go PHP5 only, new life, new goals. Almost total rewrite undertaken by developers. (All three of them)
August 2007. Our Project leader goes walkabout, not much happens.
June - July 2007 Kohana is re-released as version 1.0, without documentation.
Lots of ideas and discussions on the way forward,
A new Name, forum, Trac.
