Looking for PHP frameworks similar to Rails etc

I posted the following on the PHP newsgroup. Someone recommended code
igniter in PHP
which looks alot like rails kind of so at least there is a small
learning curve, but if anyone has any other
recommendations, please let me know:

I recently started working at a company and it sounds like I am
slated for a new web 2.0 project that will begin in a few weeks in
PHP. I have done alot of C++, Perl, and Java as well as Ruby On Rails,
which I think Rails is probably what I’d prefer to work in but it
doesn’t seem to have caught on enough so that many companies still
prefer PHP and it’s not really up to me what to do it in. Anyway, I
saw on the PHP Wiki and in a number of posts that the MVC stuff out
there for PHP looks like CakePHP, PRADO and Symfony. I guess Zend has
something as well ? I was at the book store and saw a book on Symfony
and am tempted to just go down and buy it so I have something to
study. I suspect using a framework would make it easier, especially if
I have some lead time to study it. Any comments on that ? The two
books I currently have is PHP 5 Power Programming and I just bought
PHP in a nutshell. I saw that that you can create Flash stuff in PHP,
which I was never aware of that. I may also get the PHP cookbook as I
have found that this style of book has been usefull to me. Any other
book recomendations or thoughts on PHP MVC stuff would be appreciated.

http://www.akelos.org/ have done a rails to php port.

A quote from their website “The Akelos Framework is Akelos is a PHP4
and PHP5 port of Ruby on Rails Web D. Framework.”

No personal experience, but I had a brief chat with the developer once

The Symfony book is available for free online:

http://www.symfony-project.com/book/trunk

I prefer to have a hard copy, but at least you can preview it there.
