I wrote the MicroMVC framework which is the oldest micro framework here. It also includes many advanced features like an ORM despite it's small size.

@xeoncross I randomly came across your framework, used it, and thought it was awesome. In fact, I borrowed a bunch of it to try to make WP development easier.

@zaus, glad to hear you were able to use it for wordpress. One of these days I'm sure all us developers are going to gang up on WP and rewrite the beast from scratch. ;)

It's more an experiment than a stable microframework, but it works! :)

Interesting list! I would like to add my baby, a simple framework with heavy focus on login process (currently nameless): Find it here http://www.php-login.net and here https://github.com/panique/php-login.
