NetTuts.com:
PHP 5.4 is Here! What You Must Know
March 06, 2012 @ 10:24:48

NetTuts.com has posted their own "what you must know" about the recently released (major) upgrade to the PHP language - PHP 5.4.

PHP 5.4 is here; the next major step forward since version 5.3 - keeping PHP 6 (full Unicode support) on hold for now. The latest enhancements significantly improve its elegance, while removing deprecated functionality, resulting in a dramatic optimization of the runtime (up to 20% more speed and memory usage reduction).

They hit all of the highlights:

  • Traits
  • Built-in CLI Web-Server
  • Shorter Array Syntax
  • Array Dereferencing
  • $this In Anonymous Functions
  • <?= is Always On
  • Binary Number Representation
  • Callable Typehint
  • Initialized High Precision Timer

Code examples are provided where relevant.
