php5 3 years old and php4 7 years old

php 5.2.3 release!


"The PHP development team would like to announce the immediate availability of PHP 5.2.3. This release continues to improve the security and the stability of the 5.X branch as well as addressing two regressions introduced by the previous 5.2 releases. These regressions relate to the timeout handling over non-blocking SSL connections and the lack of HTTP_RAW_POST_DATA in certain conditions. All users are encouraged to upgrade to this release."

I’ll do upgrade for my box but my hosting service still use 5.1.2 ( from phpinfo() ).

While php4 already  reach 7 years of deployment make this version still in my favourite ( I install php4 as apache module and php5 as cgi)

for windows user xampp or wamp provide the latest version of php for complete. Switch to php4 and php5 very easy as switch menu available.

with slow migration php4 to php5 then php6 become more difficult to adopt since it force user to make secure programming with superglobals and register_globals Off.

Life is option so with the php version 🙂

Oh no, fedora 7 is out too, no ‘core’ , just plain fedora in the name.

time for wget 😉
