Alexey Zakhlestins' Blog:
PHP-FPM is BSD-licensed now
June 19, 2009 @ 08:45:37

As Alexey Zakhlestins' mentions on his blog, the PHP-FPM project is now under the BSD license with the potential for it to be included in the main PHP distribution.

PHP-FPM is "deciphered" as "PHP FastCGI Process Manager" and is a patch for php to greatly improve FastCGI SAPI usage in production. It adds a bunch of additional features to php's fastcgi such as: easy php-process daemonization (with ability to specify uid/gid/chroot/log-file), safe php-processes restart (without losing requests), custom error-handling and accelerated file-upload support (requires additional support from web-server).

You can find out more about the project from its main site including a FAQ and documentation to get it up and running.

Marcus Borger's Blog:
PHP, Help from Companies & Licenses
March 11, 2009 @ 12:57:34

In this new post to his blog, Marcus Borger looks a companies and their relationship to the PHP project - more specifically Zend and their close ties with PHP and its source.

Why can Zend not simply change the license of the Zend Engine to PHP License? Why do we want this? Because it creates issues with using PHP. And we do not even inform people about it, because we are silent about this fact. So is there a reason why this has not happened already long ago?

He points out the two different sides to consider - how they (Zend and their employees) have contributed to the language and its development and what the license says about ownership of the main engine. Andi Gutmans (of Zend) has made a comment on the post about why the licensing is set up how it is and how it relates to the TSRM library.

Paul Jones' Blog:
Solar 0.19.0 released
May 25, 2006 @ 09:22:25

In his latest blog post, Paul Jones mentions the release of the latest version of Solar (simple object library and application repository) for PHP5 - version 0.19.0.

The single biggest change in this release is in the license; we have moved from LGPL to New BSD. The main additions in this release are project-support related.

Some of the other changes made include:

  • The Solar_Docs_Apiref class will read an entire Solar-style file hierarchy and parse the inline documentation into an array
  • The related Solar_Docs_Phpdoc class will parse a PHPDoc comment block into its summary, narrative, and technical portions.
  • Solar_Docs_Apiref also makes use of the new Solar_Class_Map
  • There is a new Solar_Log class, with adapters for file-based logging (good for production), echo-based logging (good for development), and multiple log support

He also mentions a large change to the Solar_View package - a switch from paths to class names for helper classes.
