On the Zend Developer Zone they've posted the second part of Vikram Vaswani's look at using the Twig templating engine in your PHP applications. In the first part of the series, he introduced the tool and got started with some simple examples. In this second part, he dives in deeper to some of the advanced features.

In this second and concluding segment, I'll look at some of Twig's other features, including such goodies as template inheritance, custom filters and caching. If you enjoyed the first part of this article, keep reading to find out more about what goes on under Twig's hood, and how you can add even more power and flexibility to your templates

He looks at template inheritance, parent blocks/child templates, data filtering, the tool's "compilation cache" and working with native plugins.
