As you might know, the horde project does not only release a set of production quality software (and an interesting bunch more which are not yet release quality) but also provides over 80 well-designed loosely coupled libraries which help you build websites, business applications or even commandline tools. To stress that point, the Horde Project now put a link to the list of components right on their frontpage. Use Horde_Rdo, a lightweight ORM layer or use the RFC-compliant Imap_Client library which performs equally or even better compared to PHP’s interpreter extension written in c. Horde_Auth, a versatile and pluggable authentication layer, has recently been featured in a series of blog posts by lead developer Jan Schneider.
Like in Symfony or Zend Framework, Components are released along with a PHPUnit based test suite adapted in the Horde_Test class and can be obtained individually through the Horde Pear Channel.

Michael Rubinsky of the Horde Core team yesterday officially announced a release date for Horde 4

“Horde 4 and groupware apps will be released on April 5th, 2011.”

Horde 4 is a complete re-design of the Horde Framework and will be accompanied by new major releases of the Horde-based groupware Apps like Imp 5 (Webmail), Kronolith (Calendar) and Turba (Address book).

The community has been waiting quite some time but the horde developers emphasized quality over speed. Horde is currently discussing a fixed release scheme of a new minor or major release every six months, with bugfixes and security fixes whenever they feel appropriate.

Horde 4 will be completely pear-based. Gunnar Wrobel stated that Horde 4 will consist of something around 80 pear packages and that Horde apps will be released as pear packages, too.

Beginning with the first release candidates, I will provide rpm packages for openSUSE build service. By the way, the Horde RPMs for openSUSE have been included into openSUSE Factory last weekend and might get shipped with openSUSE 11.4
