A glimpse of Camelot PHP Tools 2.0

Ever since we silently released the Camelot PHP Tools on Codeplex (http://camelotphptools.codeplex.com/) a few days ago we have been working on the upcoming release 2.0 and will so continue to do until everything is implemented as supposed.

What’s new

Major fixes and addons

  • PHP 5.4 strict mode support
  • Lots of new helper classes for standard lists of SharePoint, like the Tasklist and the Calendar. This will enable management of the default list types directly from PHP
  • New procedure class supporting all stored procedures and any overloads they many have, the procedures includes
  • New and configurable exception handling

Minor changes

  • Set document library to preload in the document library helper class
  • New method to store download files in a variable
  • and loads more, check the changelog!

Deprecated functions and classes

  • CamelotUploadFile, functionality moved into the new procedure call
  • CamelotDownloadFile, functionality moved into the new procedure call
  • Append in WcfSettingsList, use appendSettings instead

Roadmap

The roadmap is still open and any good ideas still have a chance to be implemented, contact us at phptools@bendsoft.com or comment this post.
