PHP YAF

PHP YAF (Yet Another Framework) is an object orientated PHP framework developed in C language and available as a PECL extension. Because PHP YAF is natively compiled the framework is amazingly fast and has almost no additional overhead. Benchmarks show that PHP YAF is a lot quicker than the many other popular PHP frameworks (Zend Framework, CodeIgniter, etc). You can download and install the Yaf from the PECL repository to check it out for yourself.
