Check the "Everything you need section" of http://phalconphp.com/en/

Translation, security components are available. Ajax and other features can be implemented easily based on the MVC pattern.

The GitHub repository for Phalcon 2 is here: https://github.com/phalcon/cphalcon/tree/2.0.0 You can find the instruction to download, compile and install the framework there, too.

Phalcon is not a "traditional" framework. Phalcon is a compiled PHP extension which leads to great execution performance. As a result of this you have to compile the source code and include the extension in your PHP installation. After that you can create PHP files as usual and use the classes which are provided by Phalcon in your code as any other class.

I already setup phalconphp in my xampp, what I need to do next in order to see the framework? Or I must create php file one by one from scratch ?

Edit: Now I finnaly understand how to use, but do you guys have any good template to start with? I mean better than github.com/phalcon/tutorial. It would be great if have full stack like sympony. If not it's quite similar to codeigniter.

Check this for different types of MVC architectures: https://github.com/phalcon/mvc

The documentation and the INVO etc. examples there: http://docs.phalconphp.com/en/latest/index.html

You could try to install dev tools, then you could write "phalcon project projectname" to generate a simple app starter for your. Or "phalcon project projectname modules" to generate multi module app, and etc.. Also, you could install phalcon stubs for phpstorm or sublime text, it would help you to see what functions classes are available and it would autocomplete it for you. But the most important thing is documentation i guess :)
