Zend Opens Zend Server and Z-Ray to Community Innovation with New Add-ons and Plugins Gallery

Community Contributes Joomla, Redis, OPcache and Doctrine2 Support to Zend Gallery in Addition to WordPress, Drupal, Magento and Popular Frameworks

CUPERTINO, Calif., July 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Zend, the PHP company, today announced that the newest leading professional PHP distribution, Zend Server 8.5, now features Zend's new gallery of community-driven add-ons.  The overwhelming popularity of Z-Ray has now evolved into an ecosystem of innovation around Z-Ray and Zend Server with the unveiling of Zend Gallery. Z-Ray has provided unrivaled visibility into application performance, and the new Zend Gallery will allow unlimited extensibility and innovation that will continue to drive increased value to the entire PHP application lifecycle.

Zend is the leading PHP Web Application Platform.

"Productivity and performance are key for today's PHP development teams. Zend continually strives to both anticipate and meet developer demand with Zend Server, delivering new features and capabilities that expedite development and strengthen performance," said Andi Gutmans, CEO of Zend. "Our new gallery empowers developers to customize Zend Server and offers one-stop access to the extensions and plugins they need to build high quality web and mobile applications."

The new Zend Gallery aggregates and organizes all Z-Ray extensions and Zend Server plugins in an easy-to-use gallery interface. Developers can now access the growing ecosystem of Z-Ray extensions for frameworks, applications, databases or technologies, as well as new Zend Server plugins, simply and easily from a single interface.

New extensions allow PHP developers to create plugins to extend Zend Server with additional custom features.  Z-Ray, the ultimate PHP productivity solution, is integrated with Zend Server to enable in-depth insight into application code and performance. Today's release includes new plugins for Joomla, Doctrine2, Redis, OPcache, MariaDB, and LoS Modules. Also included are enhanced plugins for WordPress, Drupal, Magento, Zend Framework, Apigility, Laravel and Symfony.

"As a Joomla community member and Z-Ray for Joomla extension developer, I welcome Zend's new plugins gallery," said Jisse Reitsma, founder and lead developer of Yireo.  "Our new extension to the new gallery will make it a lot easier for developers to create high performing Joomla apps, and I expect many other apps and frameworks to follow suit."

Announcing Zend Server 8.5/New Features:

Job Queue features now include full support for new multiple queues management.  Different queues can now be defined and prioritized to separate different logical groupings of jobs, such as different apps or even different parts within apps. The management UI has also been improved to help better track execution of jobs, their status, execution time, and output. Unlike cron jobs, Job Queue allows for programmatic, on-the-fly asynchronous execution and advanced management of deferred jobs – including priority-based execution and dependencies. 

New Live Support functionality makes it easier to troubleshoot problems with live end-users in real time, addressing issues that are not otherwise visible or reproducible. A specific user's session can be Z-Ray enabled, tracked and analyzed without exposing any sensitive information.

Zend Server 8.5 also includes many new enhancements designed to increase productivity and user experience including:

  • Redesigned UI for a superior user experience
  • App and framework specific built-in routing support
  • New Xdebug support
  • Notifications about the environment displayed directly in Z-Ray
  • Improved performance and lower memory consumption
  • Increased granularity control of the data collected by Z-Ray
  • New plugins display with multiple panels now consolidated under one top-level panel
  • New capability to perform server-side actions from Z-Ray

Zend Server 8.5 is available today. A free 30-day trial can be downloaded at: http://www.zend.com/en/products/zend_server and will soon be available pre-installed on Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure.

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive.

This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one b...
