CodeIgniter is one of best frameworks available, as long as you are not building a big, really big project.

It will easily introduce you to the MVC paradigm, has a small footprint and great documentation. Moreover, it is backed-by an active company, a large community and just a couple of days ago released a brand new community-driven fork.

Features take time to get integrated into the Codeigniter core, but there are a lot of 3rd party libraries you can use. (e.g. Lots of goodies at http://philsturgeon.co.uk)

Codeigniter core is thoroughly documented and I find the stability and the great knowledgebase behind Codeigniter very comforting.
