I found to my surprise that v2.0 was released and I installed it without a problem on FreeBSD.

(Please note: if you can please use pkgng to install the binaries)

I found one issue that prevented my sites from running: I used some assignments in my ini file which were not in a section and that seems to make phalcon angry.

so do not use:

myvar = "value"

but always use

[general] myvar = "value"

and refer to it as $ini->general->myvar rather then $ini->myvar in your code.
