On DZone.com today the results of their framework poll have been posted with some not-so-surprising results base on popularity and number of users in general.

A disclaimer: creating this poll was a bit of a catch-22, as I could not include all PHP frameworks (would have been a very long list) and had to make a selection based on popularity; of course that meant a guess by using Twitter and google results, but the ultimate popularity of the framework, at least in the audience of Web Builder Zone, would only be established by a poll. I thank you for the participation and the suggestions: we had more than one thousand votes, and this means we gathered responses from a statistically valid sample of the PHP community.

According to the results, the Zend Framework comes in at first place with Symfony and CodeIgniter coming in just behind. CakePHP was in fourth and "Other" in fifth. He points out that the top three frameworks all have something in common - they're all company-backed, but still derive a large part of their contributions from the community.
