CodeIgniter 2.0.2 Released

Ruby Lin's picture

 There are many PHP frameworks available today, and some of the top PHP frameworks used by developers today include: The Zend Framework, CakePHP, Symfony, CodeIgniter, Seagull, Yii. These frameworks bring a number of benefits to your PHP development, for examples:

1. MVC(Model-View-Controller) architecture

2. Separate PHP from HTML

3. User-friendly URL namespaces

4. Rapid development

These frameworks have their own positives and negatives. Each programer has a different style and different priorities when it comes to adopting a tool kit to use when building apps. CodeIgniter is an open source web application framework that helps you write incredible PHP programs, and it is well-known for following features:

1. a small footprint

2. exceptional performance

3. ease-of-use

4. clear, thorough documentation

5. nearly zero configuration

6. no command line

7. no large-scale monolithic library

CodeIgniter attracts me because of it is easy to understand and easy to extend. And it has a number of supporting helpers, libraries, and plug-ins that you can use. All the tools you need are in one little package. If it is not enough, you can create your own libraries. CodeIgniter also has some security tools. For both users and developers, security is a key question. Cross Site Scripting (XSS) is one of the most common application-layer web attacks. CodeIgniter comes with a Cross Site Scripting Hack prevention filter which can either run automatically to filter all POST and COOKIE data that is encountered, or you can run it on a per item basis.

CodeIgniter 2.0.2 was released. This is a security maintenance release. The security fix patches a small vulnerability in the cross site scripting filter.
