Trying out a slightly more professional format with questions, Phil manages to avoid talking over everyone. Winner!
This show has a history of talking about FIG stuff as it is hard to avoid. The group is working on so much cool stuff
and prominent figures of the community are involved. We got two more prominent figures, who also happen to be involved
with FIG stuff: Beau Simensen lead developer of Sculpin and Michael Dowling lead developer of the wonderful
HTTP library Guzzle, who also works at AWS on their PHP SDK.
We discussed each of their projects, some of the plans for the future, specifically whats coming up in Guzzle 4 and
how that all ties in with the new PSR-7: HTTP Message, currently in “Draft” status. Conveniently Beau, Michael and
Phil are the three FIG members who make up the working group for PSR-7 who will all be working to get this “Accepted”.
See, it all fits!
We also get some great questions from the audience:
Beau & Michael, you’ve both been managing open source packages (OSP) for a few years. What’s the best and worst part of managing an OSP?
– Jeremy Lindblom
@Michael do you think a simple HTTP Server interface would fit PSR-7? That would be a good replacement for StackPHP, no?
– Marco Pivetta
I’m curious about how this HTTP client relates to the pecl/http extension (http://php.net/http). There’s been talk in the past of including that extension in the core.
– Ben Ramsey
What different circumstances dictate how long a PSR takes to get from proposal to blessed by FIG?
– Edmund Zynda

Links and Notes
If you’re looking for some movie-inspired blogging ahead of Oscar Night, you’ve come to the right place.
Today we’re happy to announce two new free themes, Circa and Quadra!
If these two look familiar, there’s good reason. Based on Hexa, they share a similar design, but with unique colors and fonts. Both themes work beautifully with Post Formats and are designed to focus on your content, tucking secondary material behind a row of buttons in the header.
Circa is a blogging theme with sweet, muted colors and a more feminine look. Perfect for a baby or parenting blog, or anyone who wants a softer style for their site.
Quadra is a personal blogging theme with a bold palette and a traditional font. It’s great for users who want a more serious look for their personal site.
As always, both themes are responsive, and thus will look great on all screens, big or small.
Check out Circa and Quadra on the Theme Showcase by clicking on the screenshots, or preview them on your blog in Appearance → Themes.
