Recently there are various framework launched to you’re your work short and simple, flexibility to extend and give you choice to add customise features into it.

Don't just waste your time to look here and there "Which is the best framework in PHP ?". 

Recently I came across such question in LinkedIn, stackoverflow groups and where numbers of people are simply doing battle with their opinion. At end waste of time. In my point of view it is up to the developer how we use frameworks to build applications. Even sometime framework has good features into it, if your code are not properly organized, or if you write code just to get output then total development is waste. 

Yes lot of developers do that, even I have done some point of time. It happens when your Boss want you to just complete the project instead of building it properly.

Here are couple of new and good frameworks which has great features-

                PHPixie is light weight mvc framework for php. It is designed to be fast, easy to learn. It is originally fork of kohona framework.

Apart from these new frameworks,

CodeIgniter is another good framework which I used last 2 years but no longer upgraded.

Symfony2 is most decoupled framework and extensible, better oop design patterns, doctrine supports. It is awesome php framework. The main thing which attracts me is “use full-stack framework or use it components”. It has strong proven community support and huge code base which supports you to go for enterprise level applications.

Yii framework has good oop design patterns and activerecord support. Another good framework I used so far.

Laravel4 has become more popular in last year. It has clean structure and code. But 70% of Laravel 4 core build on symfony2 components.

Zend2 is better but it is little difficult to start with for entry level programmers, also with huge codebase.
