Return types in API documentation would be valuable

Unless I'm missing it, I'm not really seeing return types as part of the API documentation.

For example, if you go here:

https://docs.phalconphp.com/en/latest/api/Phalcon_Application.html

You will see that there is a method called handle(). However, it does not showcase the return type, which does exist. This causes confusion when developers are trying to understand how code like this might work:

    $application = new Application($di);
    $response = $application->handle();
    $response->send();

But it doesn't have to return Response object i think. It can be anything which developer returns - string/int/array whatever.

Exactly. Handle will check internally if your handler have returned string, and will flush it to the client automatically.

Refer to this topic for more detail: https://forum.phalconphp.com/discussion/15019/calling-return-in-controller-method-send-response-immediately

Well maybe in Application it will always return response according to code in this thread?
