Gary Hokin has posted the first part of a series he's doing to introduce those Zend Framework v1 developers out there to the latest version of the framework, Zend Framework v2.

Having worked with ZF1 for a lot of years, I've been watching the development of ZF2 with interest. I've tried nearly every version, from the heady days of the pre-Skeleton App, right through the betas and release candidates. With the imminent release of ZF2 proper, I thought I would share with you some of the most obvious differences between ZF1 and Zf2. Of course, these are only my opinions. While I've contributed (lightly), I've learned most of my ZF2 knowledge from hanging around in IRC and badgering people. If you want to learn quickly and have no remorse for annoying others, you should too!

He covers three of the main differences between the two, namely the namespacing support to replace the awkward class naming, the module-based approach and how bootstrapping is handled. There's a few code snippets tossed in for clarity and a look ahead to the second part for what's to come.
