In taking a holistic stock of the valuable feedback that readers have been sending us, we decided to chart a new course for the magazine, inline with the recommendations from our patrons. Starting this issue, the International PHP Magazine will be published exclusively in digital format (PDF), and available for you to read, on time, month after month. Outside of a long list of hard facts that corroborate our new direction, we believe this shift in delivery format and frequency will ensure you get the magazine on time, and are able to access cutting-edge PHP information more often.
You can check out their FAQ for more information about what this will mean for the magazine and its readers. One benefit, of course, is that it will lower the price of the publication - 4 Euro (about $4.50 US) for individual copies, or 42 Euro (about $50 US) for a year subscription.
