The release of phpDocumentor 1.2.0+ marks a radical shift in the design philosophy of phpDocumentor. No longer is this tool intended only to generate documentation from the source code. Now it facilitates generating user-level documentation for people who only wish to use your software, and not to modify it. This allows complete integration of all the documentation for the software project, and that means even greater ease of documenting, and ultimately more time to work on making the software work!

The old functionality of phpDocumentor has not been changed, only extended. The old HTMLdefaultConverter has been ported to a new HTMLframesConverter. The output looks the same, or better, but the templates are now templates, and allow much greater customization. To start out right away, read phpDocumentor 1.3.1 Tutorial.
