Our mission is to establish Phalcon as one of the go-to frameworks for PHP, that has a wealth of features while offering performance and lower resource consumption. We are on the verge of releasing v4 which brings Phalcon in alignment with PSR interfaces and thus making it more extendable, and introduces the ground work for additional changes and enhancements to come in future versions.
Together with our collaborators we're looking forward to work on a bright Phalcon future.
If Phalcon is the best framework for your project is something you can only judge. If you have any question feel free to join us on discord.
