On PHPClasses.org today they've posted the latest episode of their "Lately in PHP" podcast, Episode #32, "Zend Optimizer+ Cache in PHP 5.5 and MySQL 5.6 Performance Improvements".
MySQL 5.6 speed improvements and how it affects PHP applications was one of the main topics discussed by Manuel Lemos and Ernani Joppert on the episode 32 of the Lately in PHP podcast. They also commented on the eventual adoption of the Zend Optimizer+ as the PHP code caching extension that may be shipping with PHP 5.5 as alternative to APC, the implications of this to the PHP community.
They also talk some about the switch of OpenSuSE/Fedora Linux to MariaDB MySQL, TDD in the Zurmo PHP Open Source CRM and using HTML5 animations. You can listen to this latest episode either through the in-page player, by downloading the mp3 directly or watch the video of the recording on YouTbue.
