and the new home for codeIgniter is (drumbeat please... and another drumbeat) ...The British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) in Vancouver, Canada.

Please read the official announcement from ellislab here.

IMHO, the decision made by the EllisLab is in the best interest of CodeIgniter. Although, I am not sure how far this framework can evolved in the future, I am standing by on what type of license the BCIT will have on their CodeIgniter release.

I am hoping that BCIT will remove the PHP 4 fallback and focus on the implementation of the PHP 5 standards. This could have been done by many fine coders long time ago, but due to licensing restrictions, no one even bothered to take the first step. The version 2.2.0 was an execllent move, but still the PHP 5 coding standards are partially implemented.

Yeah, read this the other day, and was supprised that the university was teaching students to code with CI.. To me that was a reasurrance that, CI is a solid framework and should be used on a higher level. I find CI to be my goto framework on small projects, and as of this year moving on to large scale projects, hoping to get into more robust web applications.

Thanks for the news! I'll be following this closely, as DaniWeb is based on CI.

I am currently testing the CodeIgniter 3.x, or you can view flavors option here.

I will be bribing my mentor and my friend to write a tutorial focusing on modularization (similar to HMVC) of codeIgniter which can truly demonstrate the great potential of CI3.

Modularization can make codeIgniter to handle many applications running in just ONE framework, while maintaining the separation of concerns. So, app1 can have template engine different than app2. App1 and App2 can have their own libraries and helpers and own preferred template engine. Applications can share common libraries, helpers, config file if necessary, and own triad directories (controllers, models and views).
