phpPaypalPro version 0.2.0 has been released

Israel Ekpo writes "The second version of phpPaypalPro has been released.

phpPaypalPro is an object-oriented framework developed in PHP5 to integrate easily with the Website Payments Pro SOAP 1.1 API from Paypal. The framework is very easy to deploy, allowing you to execute any of the operations from the API in just a few lines of code. It's so easy to use, even a caveman can do it! phpPaypalPro deploys the built-in SOAP extension available natively in PHP5 to interact with the Soap Server from Paypal.

It is currently one of the first, if not the only, free, publicly-available framework developed for the Website Payments Pro SOAP API using PHP5's native SOAP extension and it hosted by Sourceforge.net. The subversion repository and hosting services provided free of charge by SourceForge has enabled to framework to be available 100% percent of the time 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The phpPaypalPro framework has been very succesful since its inception. Within its first week of release, phpPaypalPro rose to the top 1 percent of all projects listed on sourceforge in less than 4 days of version 0.1.0's release. As of February 04, 2007, phpPaypalPro was ranking 161 out of over 140,000 open source projects listed on SourceForge.net. The rankings and number of downloads are expected to improve as the framework gains popularity among Paypal Developers using PHP5.

One of the key features of phpPaypalPro is that it allows you to add multiple items easily when performing the DoDirectPayment and DoExpressCheckoutPayment operations and the lastest version released allows you to search for any type of Transactions that has occured on your account and also get specific details for any transaction you wish by specifying the transaction id number once you have retrieved all the transactions returned by the TransactionSearch operation.

Please visit the home page at http://phppaypalpro.sourceforge.net/ for details on how to download the source code, view framework's documentation and examples on how to implement and integrate. Also available on the project's home page http://phppaypalpro.sourceforge.net/ are links on how to request new features or ask for technical support."
