PHP 5.5.0 alpha 1 Released for Testing
November 15, 2012 @ 12:39:37

The official start of the PHP 5.5.0 release process has started today with a new post from David Soria Parra and Julien Pauli about the release of the "alpha 1" version of the release now being available for testing. (Note: this is an alpha release and is by no means suitable for real-life usage).

As announced a few weeks ago, we tagged PHP 5.5.0alpha1 on Tuesday. This release marks the start of 5.5.0 release process. [...] This release includes a dozen new features, such as Generators, List support in foreach. the simplified password API, and many more. Thanks to everyone working 5.5.

The plan is to put this out there for testing and then tag "alpha 2" on the 27th and make the actual release on Thursday, the 29th. If you'd like to help with the testing, download the alpha and run your tests (including the "make test" on install). Windows builds are also available at windows.php.net/qa.

Lukas Smith's Blog:
PHP 5.3 alpha1 release imminent
July 28, 2008 @ 09:31:36

As was previously mentioned by Christopher Jones, the PHP 5.3 branch is now under a feature freeze. Lukas Smith has posted a few more details about the upcoming release.

Last thursday was the begin of the feature freeze phase. Well its not really a hard feature freeze in the sense that we still have plans for a few new features and tweaks, but it means the end of the "maintainers freedom" that usually rules PHP development more or less.

New features will have to go through either him or Johannes to be included and they are doing their best to get the alpha 1 release of this new version out by July 31st.

Lukas is also trying a more unconventional approach to bug fixes to try to get the major ones knocked out first - posting them as a comment to this blog post. So far, no comments on bugs have been added, but there are a good number to get through. To help narrow it down he's also put out a plea to developers out there to help validate current bugs to potentially knock off a few of the ones that can be marked bogus.
